Billionaire Walmart Heiress Drops $25M on Park Ave. Condo

New, 15 comments

Although Walmart has yet to establish itself in the city, the megachain's heiress Alice Walton has. The Post announced that the philanthropist and world's 14th wealthiest person has purchased a duplex condo on the 30th and 31st floors of the Zeckendorf-developed 515 Park Avenue for $25 million. The home formerly belonged to financier Christopher H. Browne, whose 18-acre East Hampton estate sold at the beginning of the month for a record-shattering $147 million, making it the most expensive residential property ever to trade hands in the United States. However, the decidedly less costly condo does not roll back on the luxuries: the 6,286-square-foot home has some 52 windows with expansive vistas, and a grand staircase, as well as a one-bedroom guest apartment with views onto 60th Street, which could alternately be two staff suites.

It was formerly speculated that Walton snagged the $70 million condo of the late Edgar Bronfman Sr., which actually just sold (and shattered the record for highest price ever paid for a co-op) to Egyptian billionaire Nassef Sawiris.
