Bank of America executive Ciaran O’Kelly bought a 12,800-square-foot converted warehouse in the far West Village for $17 million.

O’Kelly, a co-head of global equities for Bank of America, purchased the three-story parcel at 134 Charles Street from painter Jennifer Bartlett.

The banker closed on the building, which includes a pool and rooftop garden, on July 22, according to city records published today.

Bartlett bought the building in 1989, but the price was not disclosed.

First priced at $17.9 million a year ago, a Sotheby’s listing said the original 1911 warehouse building had been the residence and gallery space of Walter Chrysler Jr., the son of the founder of the Chrysler Corporation. The structure was converted in 1992 by the Bartlett into a living space, offices and studios.

The building, which is zoned for commercial use in the basement and first floor, was purchased through a company called 134 Charles LLC. O’Kelly serves as the sole member of the company, city records show. The commercial spaces are leased.
