FOnly $190 million (165 million euros) for a penthouse above Central Park: The Wall Street Journal reports that the former owner, American billionaire Daniel Ochs, has his luxury apartment of 900 square meters on the top floor of a skyscraper in the United States New York City with big profit.
Accordingly, Och purchased the four-bedroom apartment in 2019 for $93 million. The magazine estimates that the sale to an anonymous buyer is “one of the most expensive sales ever made in New York.” In the same skyscraper in 220 Central Park South, US fund manager Ken Griffin paid about $238 million for an apartment in 2019.
Forbes estimates the 61-year-old’s fortune at $4.1 billion. Och is the founder and former managing director of the New York-based investment fund Och-Ziff Capital Management, which has since been renamed Sculptor. In 2016, his fund had to pay a fine of more than $400 million to the US authorities for creating a corruption network in several African countries.
Och had moved his primary residence to Florida for tax reasons, and the luxury apartment was supposed to be a secondary residence. But the billionaire owns another penthouse in West Central Park. His value, according to the magazine, is estimated at $57.5 million.
