A Hong Kong financial exec appears to be the buyer of Bob Diamond’s $50.5 million penthouse at 15 Central Park West.

Public records show the buyer — an entity identified as Senza Nome LLC — closed on the pad earlier this month, paying $9,568 per square foot.  Senza Nome is associated with Gongwen Dong, CFO of Kam Fei Group, who also paid $6.65 million for a sprawling mansion in Great Neck, New York in 2014.

Diamond, the former CEO of Barclays, put the penthouse on the market in December asking $59 million, or $11,178 per square foot. The 5,278-square-foot condo has four bedrooms, a 34-foot entry gallery, library and eat-in kitchen. Douglas Elliman’s Matthew Mackay had the listing.

Diamond bought the pad in 2009 for $37 million from a London-based investor, who snagged it for $21.89 million in 2008.
Earlier this month, Sting and his wife Trudie Styler listed their pad at Zeckendorf Development’s TRData LogoTINY “limestone Jesus” for $56 million. They paid $26.98 million in 2008.
