James Dyson will have more than 9,000 square feet of penthouse space to test his company’s latest vacuum cleaners.
The British billionaire and head of the namesake company snapped up an apartment at Zeckendorf Devevelopment’s 520 Park Avenue for between $73 million and $83 million, the New York Post reported. The tower is a short walk from Dyson’s new flagship store at 640 Fifth Avenue.
Barclays CEO Bob Diamond was also revealed to be buying a pad in the tower, paying between $20 and $40 million for 4,628 square feet. He recently sold a 15 Central Park West penthouse for $50.6 million.
Diamond and Dyson will be neighbors with UFC billionaire Frank Fertita, who recently purchased a $70 million penthouse.
The developer has sold about half of the 33 units in the 824-foot-tall tower so far, according to the Post. [NYP] — Konrad Putzier
