Vincent Viola was on the cusp of a sales record in December when he reportedly found a buyer willing to pay $80 million for his Upper East Side mansion. That deal fell through, and now he’s aiming even higher.

The CEO of Virtu Financial has re-listed his 20,000-square-foot house at 12 East 69th Street for $88 million. Viola, owner of the Florida Panthers, and his wife Teresa bought the 40-foot home in 2005 for $20 million, records show.

Located between Fifth and Madison avenues, the house has a movie theater, panic room and a 2,650-square-foot roof terrace. The current list price works out to around $4,400 per foot. Brown Harris Stevens’ Paula Del Nunzio has the listing.

The Violas originally listed the property for $114 million in 2013. In December, a Chinese buyer reportedly went into contract to buy the house for $80 million — a price that would have set a new sales record in Manhattan. (Although it’s unclear why the deal collapsed, it coincided with China’s regulatory clampdown, which has prompted some to divest assets.)

After the deal fell through, the home was listed as a $175,000-a-month rental.
