Marcel Herrmann Telles and 15 Central Park West

Brazilian beer magnate Marcel Herrmann Telles just dropped $18 million on a unit at 15 Central Park West — adjacent to a unit he already owned.

Telles, a controlling shareholder in Budweiser-maker Anheuser-Busch InBev, bought Unit 33B, according to records filed with New York City’s Department of Finance. Telles bought another unit at the Zeckendorf Development building on the 33rd floor for $30 million in 2014.

The condo spans 2,367 square feet, according to the offering plan. The seller, listed in property records as “Accadia Property II LLC,” bought the property for $8.2 million in 2008.

Last year, Karen Lo, whose family founded Vitasoy, was revealed to be the buyer of Sting’s $50 million pad at the building. And in 2017, Bob Diamond, the former CEO of Barclays, sold his $50 million penthouse at 15 Central Park West to Chinese buyer.

The project has attracted other financiers and celebrities, including Daniel Loeb, Daniel Och, Lloyd Blankfein and Denzel Washington.
