Lawrence Slaughter, JPMorgan Chase’s new North American chief, has purchased a $13.5 million apartment on Central Park West.

Slaughter, who moved to New York, from London, late last year, is the bank’s co-head of investment banking for North America. He had previously been overseeing the JPMorgan’s operations in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. He has now purchased a three-bedroom, three-bathroom spread at the San Remo, the Emery Roth-designed building at 145 Central Park West, according to public records filed with the city today. He paid the full asking price of $13.5 million for the unit, which features views of Central Park. It was not immediately clear where had been staying since his stateside move.

The seller was Gordon McLeod, the former head of Dow Jones’s digital publications, and his wife, Melanie Grisanti, the former head of production for National Geographic for Kids. McLeod recently took a new job as president of Krux, a data management platform that helps publishers to track the web movements of their readers.

McLeod first listed the apartment for sale in August 2011 with Warburg Realty Partnership brokers Andrea Daniels and Susan Silverman. A deal made for the apartment last October appears to have fallen through. Streeteasy.com shows that the listing entered into contract in November and was relisted in January for the same price.

McLeod was not immediately available for comment, while Slaughter’s press representative declined to comment.The deal closed June 11, records show. Daniels would not comment on the sale.

JPMorgan’s London office has been under scrutiny in the wake of recent losses. JP Morgan CEO Jamie Dimon said last week that he regretted not having kept up with the goings on in his London office last year, when it posted losses of more than $2 billion.
