Dermot was reported to have gone into contract to buy the property, at 520 West 43rd Street, for $193 million in April. The seller is Boston-based investment firm AEW, which paid $170 million for the building — then known as New Gotham — in 2013.

The Gotham Organization built the a 35-story, 375-unit tower in 1998, according to city data. It also has five commercial units. .

The transaction adds to Dermot’s set of large Manhattan deals for the year. The company is part of a joint venture that is in contract to buy 101 West End Avenue, a 503-unit apartment complex, for an estimated $416 million. Dermot also landed a $275 million mortgage for 21 West End Avenue, a 616-unit apartment property in the Upper West Side, in January.

Dermot did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
