Gav and Waz, the Bondi Block’s designer boys Gavin Atkins and Warren Sonin have secured a $2.3 million Rushcutters Bay apartment.

It is in the Altair building, a 16th floor apartment sold through BresicWhitney who fell short of the $2.5 million asking price.

It was snapped up after being listed by former ABC TV director Paddy Conroy, who is buying again elsewhere in the Kings Cross Road building.

Conroy paid $1.81 million in 2011 for the two bedroom, two bathroom apartment which first sold at $917,000 in 2001.

The Kings Cross Road block has been mired in controversy since the first residents moved into the high-rise in 2001.

Pets were initially a huge issue right down to the size of permissible pooches - in the memorable battle to allow occupancy of two miniature papillons, Max and Chien.

Gav and Waz sold their Rockwell Gardens, Potts Point apartment to Fleming family matriarch, Lois Fleming, for $2,725,000 earlier this year.

It was a ground floor apartment on Tusculum Street (pictured below) advertised on realestate.com.au by Richardson & Wrench Elizabeth Bay.

Now surrounded by greenery, the total floor space, inside and out, of the Potts Point apartment was 180 square metres. It comes with outdoor fireplace by Rolling Stone Landscapes, gold medal winners at the prestigious Chelsea Flower Show.

Last month Gav and Waz were the underbidders when the Point Piper-bound Sotheby’s Australia chairman Geoffrey Smith and his partner Gary Singer auctioned their Ashleigh, Elizabeth Bay apartment.
