On Prospect Park, the Richard Meier-designed condominium at 1 Grand Army Plaza, sold the first of its five penthouses, for $3.97 million, according to the Observer. The buyer is a trust associated with the Kanfer family of Akron, Ohio, who run GOJO Industries, a company that makes the hand sanitizer Purell. The 3,500-square-foot, four-bedroom unit, on the southern side of the 15-story building, features wraparound views of Brooklyn and Manhattan, including the Statue of Liberty, Chrysler Building and Prospect Park. “The building itself, the architecture is drawing a lot of interest, not only from Brooklyn but across the United States and from Europe and Australia, as well,” broker Cheryl Nielsen-Saaf of the Corcoran Group said. But, she acknowledged that another penthouse had just gone to contract with a buyer in Brooklyn, while the remaining three will go on the market in the spring. “The demand was so high, we couldn’t wait,” Nielsen-Saaf said. The project has seen its fair share of price cuts, with many units going for double digit discounts. However, this penthouse only dropped 3 percent from its original asking price of $4.1 million.
