Billionaire conservationist Jon Stryker, heir to the Stryker Corporation medical supply business fortune, has sold his Central Park-facing penthouse co-op for $42 million, according to public records filed with the city today.

Stryker listed the property for sale in October, tapping the Corcoran Group’s Robby Browne and Brown Harris Stevens power broker John Burger to market it as a co-exclusive listing. It had been listed for $48 million.

Browne declined to comment on the sale, while a spokesperson for Brown Harris Stevens was not immediately available for comment.

The identity of the buyer, who bought under a trust, was not clear.

Stryker bought the property for $12.8 million in 2002, it was previously reported.

The 5,600-square-foot pad, previously featured in Architectural Digest, has 2,500 square feet in outdoor terraces, five bedrooms and six bathrooms.

Stryker, who according to Forbes is the only billionaire with a species of monkey named after him, was not reachable for comment. Stryker received the unusual honor of having Rhinopithecus strykeri named after him for his habitat conservation efforts.
