Robert A.M. Stern's newest limestone creation at 220 Central Park South continues to lure billionaires, but a new scoop from the Post says that two of the building's biggest rumored buys appear to be one in the same. Sources have told the Post that the rumored Qatari investor who is seeking out multiple units to the tune of $250 million is actually billionaire hedge funder Ken Griffin, whose interest in the building came to light in late August. "Griffin is looking to combine multiple apartments into one property. The deal is worth more than $200 million," a source told the Post of the divorcing hedge funder who seems to be using the pricey pad as a jumping point for his newly-single life. "He wanted a $65 million home at 15 Central Park West three years ago, but his wife didn't like it," a source close to Griffin told the Post in late August, "Now he can make his own choices."
Griffin's other New York City padat 820 Fifth Avenuemay be a casualty of his divorce from wife Anne Dias-Griffin, but with what may be one of the city's priciest apartments on his horizon, it seems like the billionaire, who nets $2.2 million a day after taxes, could really care less.
