Bodour Al Qasimi, the founder of the Kalimat Publishing House and number 34 on Forbes’ most powerful Arab women of 2014 list, bought a $14.25 million unit at 15 Central Park West, together with her father Sheikh Sultan A. Alqasimi, according to property records filed with the city Friday.

The pair bought unit 2A in the Robert A.M. Stern-designed building. Nightingale and Orchard LLC is the seller of the unit. The roughly 2,900-square-foot unit last changed hands in October 2008 for $7.6 million. The apartment has three bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms.

Sultan Al Qasimi is a member of the Supreme Council of the United Arab Emirates and rules the emirate of Sharjah.

According to property records, the royals already own a unit on the fourth floor of the Zeckendorfs-developed building.

The condominium development is one of Manhattan’s hottest buildings. Earlier this month, fashion designer Elie Tahari bought two condos for a combined $25.3 million. In May, a penthouse at 15 CPW was sold for $48 million.
