Libet Johnson, the Johnson & Johnson heiress, apparently owned a mysterious unit at the Trump International Tower, where she also listed a condo in April, which sold for $21.85 million, the New York Observer reported.
Little else about the sale of the 4,489-square-foot pad is immediately known.
Property records cited by the Observer show no previous activity for penthouse 48A at 1 Central Park West, and the new owner is the vaguely-titled Unit 48A LLC, with a nearly $20 million mortgage issued by Greenstreet Financial.
Key details such as the listing broker, how much Johnson paid for the home when she bought it and the most recent buyer’s identity remain unknown.
StreetEasy shows a sale for the unit back in 1997, but the link to the deed brings up an error message.
Johnson has amassed quite a collection of New York City homes over the years, including a second property in Trump International Tower that sold in 2007 and a townhouse at 16 East 69th Street that fetched $48 million – a record at the time. [NYO] – Julie Strickland
