An unidentified buyer gave $ 101,71 million for a penthouse on the 76th floor of a skyscraper located near Central Park. The deal had been going on for several years and was only now completed. The publication writes about this and several other impressive purchases. New York Post.
The penthouse is located at 220 Central Park South, a residential skyscraper near Central Park in Midtown, New York.
The buyer (76CPS LP), whose real name has not been released, paid $ 99,9 million for the apartment, plus another $ 1,81 million for a smaller unit in the same building, according to city real estate records.
The penthouse occupies the entire 76th floor, only about 762 sq. m² (8200 ft²), of which almost 79 m² (850 ft²) is open space.
However, this is not the only major purchase recorded in the building over the past week. Two more buyers each paid more than $ 50 million for their new home. One gave $ 55,5 million for an apartment on the 68th floor, and the other $ 53,96 million for an apartment on the 64th floor (according to city real estate records).
The closing of the deals happened during the COVID-19 pandemic, but those purchases have been brewing for a long time. All three completed deals have actually been in progress since at least 2017, when the contracts were signed.
200 Central Park South made real estate history when billionaire Ken Griffin gave away $ 2019 million in 238 for several downtown apartments covering nearly 2230 m² (24000 ft²). The head of hedge fund Citadel has also set aside an additional $ 4 million for two adjacent park-view apartments on the 20th floor for guests and staff. As a result, the total amount of the transaction was $ 242 million.
True, these apartments are not entirely private. For example, a new buyer of a 76th floor penthouse is likely to see the open-air Griffin terrace downstairs in the center of the building, brokers say. And residents of the new Central Park Tower will be able to look into the penthouse on the 76th floor. “For $ 242 million, plus finishing, is there a semblance of privacy? But alas, in the New York City condominium world, true seclusion is fleeting, ”says broker Dolly Lenz.
Other billionaires in the building include Dan Ochs' $ 93 million apartment on the 73rd floor, which he acquired at the end of 2019.
However, many of the apartments in 220 Central Park South were sold in secret, deals were done behind the scenes.
