Janet Jackson wants to sell longtime NYC home for $9 million

Miss you very much?

Legendary singer-songwriter Janet Jackson is looking to sell her New York City home overlooking Central Park for $8.99 million, according to a report and the listing brokerage.

Jackson, the younger sister of the late pop titan Michael Jackson, has owned the eyrie at 1 Central Park West since 1998 when she bought it for $2.8 million, according to The Wall Street Journal. It measures 2,094 square feet — and has three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a half-bathroom.

Jackson reps did not respond to the Post’s request for comment on her entry, but a spokeswoman told the Journal that she had not been to the home since 2019.

“Whenever I walked into my apartment 25 years ago, I always appreciated the wonderful location of my home and the breathtaking view that captures the magic and excitement of New York,” Jackson told the Journal in a statement. “Stepping through its threshold, I immediately felt so calm and peaceful — so many memories.”

The home, however, overlooks expansive views of Central Park and the city skyline, with listing images showing a corner living and dining area soaring above the park’s treetops. A breakfast bar in the kitchen also overlooks the entire expanse of Central Park, but the home also showcases the row of luxurious, super-tall Billionaires’ Row buildings on 57th Street.

The building is the condominium attached to the Trump International Hotel, located at Columbus Circle and the southwest corner of Central Park — and the unit provides access to hotel amenities like room service at the on-site Jean-Georges Vongerichten restaurant. As for the house itself, an entrance gallery leads to this open plan living and dining area.

Elsewhere, the master bedroom sits at the end of the entry gallery – and features multiple closets and a marble bathroom. The second and third bedrooms also have their own bathroom.

Meanwhile, the apartment’s library has a wall of custom millwork — and there are floor-to-ceiling windows and 10-foot ceilings throughout.

Despite the perks, it’s time for Jackson to move on. She lists the pad because “it’s time for someone else to enjoy it and make new memories,” Allison Koffman of Sotheby’s International Realty – who shares the listing with Juliette Janssens – told the Journal.
