UPDATED, July 12, 3:15 p.m.: An affiliate of billionaire investor Carl Icahn’s Icahn Enterprises snagged a penthouse at Museum Tower for $9.3 million, according to property records filed with the city Thursday.

The seller is the estate of Jerry Perenchio, the former chairman and CEO of Univision who died last year.

The condominium unit at 15 West 53rd Street was previously listed for $10.95 million. Spanning roughly 5,000 square feet, the duplex includes two terraces and a double height foyer, according to the listing. The building has a landscaped roof terrace and wine storage.

Lawyer Joseph Calabrese signed the deed on the buyer’s behalf. Icahn Enterprises’ plans for the apartment were not immediately clear. Icahn also owns another penthouse in the building.

Brown Harris Stevens’ Edward F. Johnston III and Shirley A. Mueller had the listing. The brokers could not be reached for comment.

Museum Tower, which was built in 1983 as part of a redesigned Museum of Modern Art, was designed by architect Cesar Pelli, whose portfolio includes the World Financial Center.

In April, the City Council in Malibu, California, said it will acquire almost 30 acres of land within the city from Perenchio’s portfolio. The Council approved the $42.5 million purchase of land zoned for commercial use. The undeveloped 70-acre Malibu property hit the market for $150 million last year.

His family also listed his Malibu Colony Road home for around $14 million.
