The storied San Remo is gaining another prominent tenant: César Pelli of the eponymous architecture firm . Pelli purchased the 12-room apartment from Rona Maurer, the mother-in-law of actor John Leguizamo, following a legal battle alleging that Maurer was masking the sale in order to keep any profits from her daughter in law, 6sqft reports. The apartment has 65 feet of Central Park views, a 34-foot by 21-foot corner living room, and a marble entryway. The pad was originally listed in April 2014 for $18.5 million.
