An Asian financier calling himself “J. Lo” is reportedly looking to buy up luxe apartments in Manhattan’s premier buildings with haste. Lo, who is currently renting a $100,000-per-month condo at West 56th Street’s Park Imperial, counting neighbors like Daniel Craig, Sean “Diddy” Combs and Deepak Chopra, also recently signed a contract at the Park Laurel on West 63rd Street. He is reported to have paid nearly $28 million for the 7,758-square-foot spot that belonged to Israeli philanthropist Ephraim Gildor. Lo hasn’t made an offer yet on the $31 million penthouse he visited at Trump Park Avenue, but he did bid almost $40 million on Broadcast.com founder Todd Wagner’s apartment at the Time Warner Center, which, unfortunately for Lo, isn’t actually for sale. Wagner bought the 4,800-square-foot penthouse, once famously rented by Jay-Z, from real estate investor Michael Hirtenstein in 2007. Observers have noticed Lo’s black Cadillac Escalades idling outside his current rental, where he’s had shopping bags from Bergdorf Goodman delivered to his door. [Post, 1st item]
