520 Park Avenue and William Zeckendorf

One of the priciest residential deals to start off the year is another penthouse closing at Zeckendorf Development’s 520 Park Avenue.

The duplex penthouse sold for $64.25 million, according to records filed with New York City’s Department of Finance. The buyer is listed as “CJFGK, LLC.”

The buyer financed the purchase with a $32.13 million mortgage from JPMorgan Chase, records show. The LLC is managed by Moshe Oppenheim, an attorney with First Quality in Great Neck, New York. First Quality manufactures a variety of products include baby diapers, paper towels and food packaging containers.

The buyer’s attorney, Karen Geringer at Greenberg Traurig, didn’t immediately respond to request for comment.

The duplex, DPH 54, spans 9,138 square feet and was priced at $76 million, according to the offering plan. It sold for $7,031 per square foot.

The closing is the latest in a string of pricey sales at 520 Park. Billionaire Frank Fertitta, the former owner of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, was said to have bought a unit for $70 million, though it’s not clear which one. Last month, a duplex penthouse unit sold for $68 million to an anonymous buyer. It was previously asking $83 million. Billionaire investment banker Ken Moelis also bought a $62 million penthouse at the Robert A.M. Stern-designed building. And vacuum cleaner mogul James Dyson also reportedly snagged a $73.8 million unit at the 54-story tower.

Earlier this month, the developer decided to split up the building’s $130 million triplex. The offerings are now being marketed as a simplex seeking $40 million and duplex priced between $80 million and $100 million, The Real Deal reported. Closings began at the development in September.
