The president’s longtime lawyer purchased a four-bedroom apartment at 111 Murray Street

Donald Trump’s longtime lawyer Michael Cohen, who is currently under federal investigation for possible bank fraud and campaign finance violations, has reportedly purchased a $6.7 million apartment at 111 Murray Street, the Tribeca skyscraper best known for its spate of outrageous amenities (including concierge jet service).

The Wall Street Journal reports that Cohen closed on a unit in the Kohn Pedersen Fox-designed building in April—it’s currently the only closed sale, though many other units are in contract—and sought help from the developers to finance the purchase. The developers agreed to a $3.5 million short-term mortgage, which Cohen and his wife “personally guaranteed,” according to the WSJ’s sources.

The building is a collaboration between Fisher Brothers, Witkoff, and New Valley, and as the WSJ notes, some of those firms have ties to President Donald Trump. Steven Witkoff, the head of the eponymous development firm, is a friend of Trump’s, while New Valley CEO Howard Lorber (who’s also the chair of Douglas Elliman, which is marketing 111 Murray) was an advisor to Trump during his 2016 campaign.

The unit itself is a four-bedroom apartment on the building’s 19th floor, spanning more than 2,600 square feet. Cohen previously owned a three-bedroom unit at Trump World Tower, located near the United Nations; he sold that apartment for $3.3 million last year. He and his wife used a different apartment at Trump Park Avenue as collateral against bank debts.
