Cantor Fitzgerald’s Kantor buys $5M unit at Trump World Plaza

Steven Kantor, executive managing director of global financial services firm Cantor Fitzgerald, may be trading up at Trump World Tower at 845 United Nations Plaza. The executive appears to have purchased a 2,476-square-foot condominium unit at the tower for $5 million, according to public records filed with the city last week, just a few months after he listed another unit at the building.

Kantor’s new unit, #82, was initially listed with the Corcoran Group’s Robb Saar in July for $5.35 million, according to data from and went into contract at the end of October. The three-bedroom unit is larger than Kantor and wife Mindy’s current two-bedroom apartment in the building, #75D. The couple listed #75D with Michelle Griffith of Trump Sales and Leasing in August for $4.5 million.

Unit 82 last changed hands in 2007 for $4.3 million, public records indicate.

Kantor, whose name is spelled differently than the firm’s Cantor, has been doing a lot of high-profile personal real estate dealings lately. He sold a 20,000-square-foot, Georgian-style mansion in Old Westbury once occupied by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney for $15.88 million earlier this year, according to news reports.

Kantor, Saar and Griffith were not immediately available for comment.
