220 Central Park South

Another week, another anonymous buyer at the ultra-luxe 220 Central Park South tower. But this time, it’s a little different.

The same mystery buyer bought two condominium units at the building on the same day. The unknown person bought unit 41A for $23.4 million, or roughly $7,500 per square foot, and unit 19G for $1.8 million, or roughly $3,600 per square foot.

The purchases were made through an anonymous LLC called “Pez Loco Partners,” according to records filed with New York City’s Department of Finance.

Neither unit was publicly listed.

According to the building’s original offering plan, unit 41A is a three bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom apartment, while 19G is a studio with one bathroom. Unit 41a was originally listed at $20.75 million while 19G was listed at $1.8 million.

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

The 79-story limestone tower was developed by Vornado Realty Trust and designed by Robert A.M. Stern. Closings at the building began in October. Vornado estimates profits at the condo to check in around $1 billion.

The new buyer will join billionaire hedge funder Ken Griffin, who bought the building’s penthouse for a record-breaking $238 million; hedge funder Daniel Ochs; investment executive Richard Leibovitch; Brazilian construction heiress Renata de Camargo Nascimento; debt-collection mogul Andrew Zaro; and Albert Behler, chairman and chief executive of real estate investment trust Paramount Group.
