Baseball shortstop Derek Jeter has sold his 88th floor penthouse apartment inside the Trump World Tower at 845 United Nations Plaza for $15.5 million, according to city records filed today. The deed shows the date of sale as September 25 to an entity named SARA RS LLC.

The Department of State links the LLC to a Silvio Luiz Reichert. Sonia Col, who is listed as the buyer’s attorney in the deed, did not immediately return a call seeking comment on the purchaser and his professional work. shows that the 5,425-square-foot condominium home was first listed by Trump for $20 million in September 2010. The following August, the Trump listing was taken offline. In April 2012, The Corcoran Group’s Carrie Chiang and Richard Phan listed the home for $17.95 million. (note: correction appended)

Neither Chiang nor Phan immediately returned an email seeking comment on the sale.

As previously reported, Jeter recommitted to selling his home to “[downsize] to a Manhattan pied-a-terre apartment.” The completion of a 30,000-square-foot mansion in Tampa, Fla. plus his split with girlfriend Minka Kelly meant he didn’t need as big a home.

The home has 16-foot floor-to-ceiling windows, a billiards room, four bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms and a button-operated lighting, audio, video and privacy shades system, according to the listing.
