Moderna’s Dr. Eric Huang buys New York home for $8.1 million


Dr. Eric Huang, who led Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine, clearly knows how to make a splash.

He just shelled out $8.1million for a West Chelsea duplex with its own private pool, property records show. (The purchase was made through Shamash 522 LLC.)

That’s quite a bargain, considering the seller paid $8.81 million for the property in 2018.

The five-bedroom unit near the High Line was last asking for $8.5 million.

Moderna’s vaccine brought the company billions of dollars in revenue last year, according to reports.

But don’t expect Huang to rest on his laurels. He is now leading the company’s move into gene editing, serving as chief scientific officer of Moderna Genomics, a new unit announced last year.

The seventh floor condo is located at Soori High Line, 522 W. 29th St. – an 11-story boutique building developed in 2017 and known for having a private pool in every unit.

Huang’s new 3,586 square foot unit opens from a private elevator landing into a double-height living room with floor-to-ceiling windows and 18-foot ceilings.

Details include oak-panelled walls, radiant-heated limestone floors, a gas fireplace – plus an enclosed, heated saltwater pool surrounded by a wooden deck.

The interior also includes a chef’s kitchen and a master bedroom with its own private terrace. The remaining bedrooms are on the upper floor, which also has another terrace and a media room.

Building amenities include a fitness center, lounge, storage, and private parking.
