Financier Eyal Levy has listed his five-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom spread on the 53rd floor of the Millennium Tower at 101 West 67th Street for $27 million.

Levy listed the aerie—a combination of units 53C, D and E — yesterday with Eva Mohr and Serena Boardman of Sotheby’s International Realty, according to Streeteasy.com.

Mohr and Boardman were not immediately available for comment.

Levy is the founder and CEO of PlatinumArt, a specialty art financing company, which provides credit enhancement and cash flow solutions for art dealers and collectors using fine art as collateral, according to its website.

Public records show that Levy purchased units D and E in 1995 for an unknown price and added unit C in 2004, buying it from the former CEO of May Department Stores, Eugene Kahn, for $2.56 million.

The 4,200-square-foot pad offers unobstructed panoramic views of Central Park and the Hudson and East Rivers, according to the listing. It also features a library and a staff room. Residents of the building are permitted to use a Reebok gym in the building at a discounted price.

Levy, who told The Real Deal he is relocating to London for business, founded PlatinumArt in 2010 after his previous firm, the Platinum Funding Group, ceased operations.

He said the unit is on the same floor as an apartment owned by radio personality Howard Stern. He regularly runs into Stern in the hallway, he said.

Levy’s Millennium Tower spread is only one of several homes priced above $20 million to have hit the market this month. Man-about-town and high-end art patron John de Neufville, once heralded by New York Magazine as one of the city’s most eligible bachelors, listed his West Village townhouse at 81 Horatio Street for $20 million June 1. Meanwhile, the penthouse at 419-421 Broome Street, the building where actor Heath Ledger was renting when he died in 2008, just hit the market for $25.5 million.
