Philanthropist Laurie Tisch, daughter of the late Loews Corp. co-founder Preston Robert Tisch, has just shelled out $24 million for a 12-room co-op at the San Remo.

Property records show Tisch, a part owner of the New York Giants, closed on the fifth-floor unit at 145 Central Park West, which hit the market last May asking $26 million.

The seller was architect César Pelli, who bought the apartment with his late wife Diana Balmori in 2015. They paid $17.5 million for the 4,900-square-foot pad, which has 65 feet of Central Park views.  Balmori died in 2016, and Pelli listed the apartment last year for $26 million.

Douglas Elliman‘s Abigail Agranat and Andrew Darwin had the listing.

Tisch currently owns a sprawling co-op at 834 Fifth Avenue, which she purchased for $29 million in 2009.

The Loews heiress previously owned a duplex at the Brentmore at 88 Central Park West. She sold the ninth floor to Jeffrey Gates and Richard Moran for $15 million in 2011, and they purchased the tenth floor for $8.16 million in 2014.
