After years of delays, closings began at Alexico Group’s condo building in 2016. Within a month of the sales launch in 2013, 50 percent of the units were in contract for a reported $450 million. A penthouse in the building sold for $47.8 million in 2017.

Last year, Leon Shaulov, a hedge fund manager and former trader at the disgraced Galleon Group, dropped $27 million on another penthouse in the building.
