Related Companies has found another buyer for a pricey unit at 70 Vestry Street.

Film producer and director Jack Heller bought a unit in the building for $18.8 million, according to records filed with the New York City Department of Finance. The apartment was listed for $20 million.

Heller’s unit spans about 4,100 square feet and has a private terrace that faces the Hudson River. The apartment also has a great room that’s nearly 700 square feet and includes a fireplace.

Heller has produced movies including “Brawl in Cell Block 99,” “Enter Nowhere” and “Bone Tomahawk.”

In September, another unit at 70 Vestry sold for $24 million. It was previously listed for $26 million. And last year, Related found a buyer for the building’s $65 million penthouse, which the company said would set a sales record for downtown Manhattan when it closes.

Designed by Robert A.M. Stern, 70 Vestry includes an 82-foot swimming pool, a private regulation squash court and a library. Related purchased the site of the building in 2014 from longtime property owner Ponte Equities for $115 million.
