Jim Henson's Former “Muppet Workshop” Listed for $27.25M
The head of Warner Music Group and the heir to the Seagram liquor fortune, Edgar Bronfman Jr. has listed his Upper East Side townhouse for $27.25M. In its more colorful (and furry) days, the Neo Georgian building was known as the "Muppet Workshop" and served as the epicenter for Jim Henson and his team of creative designers. The listing even notes that the 117 East 69th Street has mixed-use zoning, meaning the lucky buyer could convert this classic dwelling into headquarters for a small bank or hedge fund, or use it as a single-family home.
