Vera Wang’s wealthy ex nabs $30K a month rental off Union Square

Daily News, June 3, 2015

Fashion queen Vera Wang’s wealthy ex-husband Arthur Becker has scored himself a very fashionable pad.

The businessman, who heads online magazine distribution service Zinio, has forked out more than $30,000 a month for a three-bedroom, 3.5-bathroom apartment at 15 Union Sq. West, spies told the Daily News.

While undoubtedly luxurious, the property is a far cry in terms of style from the $23 million duplex apartment he once shared with Wang, his wife of 23 years, at 740 Park Ave., arguably the most expensive, and stuffiest, co-op building in New York.

It has a massive terrace with views of Union Square, a gas fireplace, cast-iron arched windows and two walls of windows. Residents also have access to the building’s 50-foot lap pool, state-of-the-art fitness center and yoga studio.

Listing brokers Mark Fromm and Claudia Saez-Fromm of Town Residential declined to comment.

Becker, a successful businessman, has long been credited with helping Wang turn her design business into a global powerhouse. The former couple, who has two daughters, reportedly remains on good terms.
