Inqlings: Sambora's crib: Two Liberty

Richie Sambora will be a stranger in this town no more.
The Bon Jovi axman, seeking an investment and a change of scenery, has signed an agreement to buy a condo way up high in 57-story Two Liberty Place. He'll join such folks as former mayoral hopeful Tom Knox, who recently bought half of a somewhat lower floor. (Knox will only be on the 46th.)

Sambora, who owns a piece of the Philadelphia Soul (as does Bon Jovi front man Jon Bon Jovi), is expected to stick around after next week's Wachovia Center shows to talk about his new pad. He may spill the price tag, which likely is in the high seven figures.

Sambora told People mag recently that he's recovering from a horrible 2007, including the death of his father from lung cancer, his divorce from Heather Locklear, alcohol rehab, a custody battle, and a breakup with Denise Richards. He told the mag that he's helping his mother and raising awareness for lung cancer.

Also in real estate: filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan is now asking $6.25 mill for his former seven-bedroom in Gladwyne, which went on the market nearly a year ago for $8 million. He bought it for $4.5 million in 2000, and added much, including a nonpareil home theater.
