Theodore Spencer, grandson of John D. Rockefeller III, has snagged a combination co-op in Greenwich Village for $15 million, the New York Observer reported. The home is located on the 12th floor of 40 Fifth Avenue, and appears to have broken a price record for the building.

The home was not publicly listed. Without listing data, the Observer said the acquisition appears to include a combination of a three-bedroom classic seven and a two-bedroom apartment.

In addition, the transaction appears to have topped the last record-setting purchase at the building, which was set in 2009 when Chipotle founder Steve Ells bought a four-bedroom penthouse for $11 million, the Observer said, citing StreetEasy data.

Spencer works at the Natural Resources Defense Council’s Climate Center. He bought the home along with Tracy Spencer, his wife.
