A $2.6 million staff studio at 15 Central Park West? That's so 2010. The new standard in 15 CPW staff accommodations: the $8.395 million 2BR, 2.5BA that's allegedly been purchased by Russian fertilizer magnate Dmitry Rybolovlev. He recently picked up Sanford Weill's $88 million penthouse for his daughter, Ekaterina Rybolovleva, and now the Observer hears that this new, smaller place will be for Ekaterina's private security detail. The seller is a healthcare exec who spent $4,989,425 on the apartment in 2008.
