Carlos Alejandro Pérez and 960 Fifth Avenue

Colombian financier and beer heir Carlos Alejandro Pérez Dávila has picked up the late art collector Robert Ellsworth’s sprawling Upper East Side co-op for $55 million.

Property records show Pérez Dávila — a former investment banker and a member of the wealthy Colombian family that controls brewing giant SABMiller — purchased the third-floor pad at 960 Fifth Avenue through Quadrant Capital Advisors, a New York-based fund he co-manages with his cousin Alejandro Santo Domingo, head of the Grupo Santo Domingo empire.

The 22-room apartment was home to Ellsworth before he died in 2014. After his death, Masahiro Hashiguchi, his live-in chef and the executor of his estate, quietly put the apartment on the market asking about $35 million.

Last year, news reports indicated that Standard Industries co-CEO David Millstone and his wife Jennifer, daughter of shopping mall mogul Samuel Heyman, had picked up the pad for $53 million. The co-op has four bedrooms, five bathrooms, a library and eight maid’s rooms.

The tony building is also home to Egyptian construction tycoon Nassef Sawiris, who paid $70 million for a penthouse previously owned by the late Edgar Bronfman. Peruvian businessman Carlos Rodriguez-Pastor, an heir to a Peruvian banking fortune, also owns a $21 million co-op at the building.
