Billionaire Bill Ackman apparently bought the $91.5 million penthouse at One57 “for fun,” but now the tennis-obsessed hedge fund chief may be looking at an uber-luxe bachelor pad.
In 2015, Ackman and a group of investors closed on the 13,554-square-foot aerie at Extell Development’s One57, paying $6,750 per square foot. Spread over the 75th and 76th floors, the pad has six bedrooms and a two-story, 51-foot-wide glass enclosed “winter garden.”
The Ackmans also own a $35 million apartment at the Beresford on the Upper West Side, as well as a $22 million estate in Bridgehampton they bought in 2011. Last year, Ackman paid $23.5 million for a six-acre property nearby.
Ackman’s Pershing Square signed a lease for 67,000 square feet at the former Ford Motor Co. building at 787 11th Avenue last month. Along with Adam Flatto’s Georgetown Co., Ackman paid $255.5 million last year to buy the eight-story building. Its roof features a tennis court. [NYP] — E.B. Solomont
