The properties they snapped up included four condos at Vornado Realty Trust’s 220 Central Park South and one Fifth Avenue co-op. The five sales totaled more than $243 million. Here’s a look at last month’s biggest home sales.
1. 220 Central Park South, #49A
The 6,500-square-foot unit sold for $64.1 million to K&J Assets, an entity tied through mortgage documents to a housing complex in Hong Kong. The unidentified buyers took out a $37.8 million mortgage on the five-bedroom pad.
2. 220 Central Park South, #46A
Another five-bedroom condo sold for $59.6 million to an LLC which has the address of a St. Petersburg, Fla., home owned by interior designer Janine Arnold and attorney Frederick Arnold, the former chief financial officer of brokerage Convergex, now owned by Cowen Group.
3. 960 Fifth Avenue, #10A
Aerin Lauder, the billionaire heiress and style and image director of Estée Lauder, snapped up this $47 million co-op in Lenox Hill. The five-bedroom apartment hadn’t traded for 70 years. It was previously owned by the late C. Douglas Dillon, who was treasury secretary in the Kennedy administration.
4. 220 Central Park South, V-14
This 4,300-square-foot villa sold for $46.5 million to an unidentified buyer who used an LLC. The one-bedroom duplex is directly underneath Sting’s nearly $66 million triplex.
5. 220 Central Park South, #54B
This three-bedroom condo closed for $26.2 million to an LLC buyer with a sole manager identified as Ning Zhao, whose listed address tracks back to a mansion in Princeton that Zhao and Li Ge bought for $8.3 million in 2018, according to public records. A couple by the same name was honored last year for donating about $14 million to Peking University in China.
