***AN EXCERT FROM AN ARTICLE*** On April 29, 2002 actress Glenn Close purchased a 1,450-square-foot duplex at the Memphis Downtown, a 22-story condominium at 140 Charles Street for $899,000...According to brokers, her new apartment needs work, but no renovations have been made yet. "I am really shocked she bought it," said one broker who had been called in to price the apartment. "It's a postwar building, nothing special." On the other hand, it was stylish enough for fashion designer Michael Kors, a former resident. Said Merle Barash, who owns her own real estate firm and has sold numerous apartments in the building: "Every apartment has a curved balcony... and every apartment is a corner apartment. The only reason people leave is if they are [leaving town] or can't buy the apartment next door."
