UPDATED, 11:30 a.m., Nov. 20: Thurstan Bannister, son of the first person to ever run a less-than-four-minute mile, sold his co-op at the Kenilworth, at 151 Central Park West, for $12.5 million. The 2,942-square-foot unit has seven bedrooms and three bathrooms. 

Thurstan’s father, Roger Bannister, broke the record for the fastest human mile on record at the 1952 Olympics in Helsinki.

Philanthropist Arthur Koenig bought the apartment at the 12-story building between 75th and 76th streets. Fox Residential brokers Stephanie Kanner and Barbara Fox had the listing for the pad, which first hit the market in May, according to the New York Observer.

Bannister’s father, Roger Bannister, held the title of fastest mile-runner for 46 days before another runner broke his record.

Architecture firm Townsend, Steinle and Haskell designed the Kenilworth in 1908 in the style of the French Second Empire. Michael Douglas, Catherine Zeta-Jones, John Lithgow and murdered broker-to-the-stars Linda Stein have lived there. [NYO]Mark Maurer
