Is the $200M-plus buyer at 220 CPS Ken Griffin?

The mysterious buyer of the $200 million-plus mega-unit at 220 Central Park South in Midtown might be none other than… Chicago-based hedge fund founder Ken Griffin?

Well, the New York Post seems to think so.

Griffin, founder and CEO of Citadel, is in negotiations to combine multiple penthouses at Vornado Realty Trust’s under-construction luxury tower on the so-called “Billionaires’ Row,” the New York Post reported, citing anonymous sources. The deal is not likely to be complete for up two years once construction is complete, according to the tabloid.

Griffin founded the hedge fund, which now has $26 billion under management, in 1990. He is worth a not-too-shabby $7 billion, and makes an income of $2.2 million per day, according to analysis of filings from his in-progress divorce from wife Anne Dias-Griffin.

The Real Deal reported on a record-shattering deal similar to the one the Post attributes to Griffin back in June. TRD reported that the penthouse’s buyer is expected to be a Qatari mogul. [NYP] Ariel Stulberg
