A four-bedroom unit at 220 Central Park South—which recently dominated the list of the priciest closed sales of 2019, and is the current preferred condo for billionaires buying real estate—has hit the market in what may be the first resale at the exclusive tower. As the Real Deal first reported, the property is asking a whopping $36 million.
The seller is Richard Leibovitch, co-founder of real estate investment company Arel Capital, who bought the pad in December 2018 for $26.2 million, city records show.
The 3,703-square-foot apartment has four bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, a large living area, eight closets (including two walk-in ones), white oak herringbone floors, and a laundry room. It also has floor-to-ceiling windows that offer views of Central Park and Manhattan’s skyline.
It sits on the 31st floor of the Robert A.M. Stern-designed skyscraper. Taxes for the property are $8,677/month and common charges $7,022/month. Manju Jasty of Corcoran has the listing.
A little over a month ago, one of the building’s penthouses sold for $92.7 million—and that’s just one of the pricey apartments at the tower that have been snapped up by celebrities and other high-rollers. Most famously, hedge funder Ken Griffin bought a $239 million spread, which is the most expensive apartment ever sold in the country. (That sale also triggered the passing of the “mansion tax” in the state legislature, and re-ignited talks on the currently stalled pied-à-terre tax.)
