Hedge funder Ken Griffin is getting some more high net-worth neighbors at 220 Central Park South.

Among them is Albert Behler, chairman and chief executive of real estate investment trust Paramount Group, who bought a 35th floor unit for $33.5 million, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Other buyers include Brazilian billionaire Renata de Camargo Nascimento, one of three billionaire sisters and heiresses of a cement and construction fortune. She paid $30.191 million for a 33rd floor unit.

Daniel Och, also a hedge funder, and debt-collection mogul Andrew Zaro, have scooped up pads at the Vornado Realty Trust tower.

Griffin’s $238 million penthouse purchase, meanwhile, broke records for the most expensive U.S. home ever sold.

Amenities at the tower include a wine cellar, juice bar, library, swimming pool, basketball court, and a golf simulator room.

Vornado’s proceeds from 220 CPS are being rolled into the company’s major redevelopments at One and Two Penn Plaza, and the Farley Post Office, CEO Steve Roth said on an earnings call this month. [WSJ] — Decca Muldowney
