1.) An entity tied to Marisa Chearavanont — Forbes valued her family’s net worth at $36.6 billion in 2017 — sold her pad at the Plaza at 1 Central Park South for $19.6 million. Chearavanont co-founded the Build Foundation, a Bangkok-based nonprofit that claims to help Thailand’s underprivileged youth. The buyer was an entity tied to Brazilian executive Leila Mejdalani Pereira, president of financial firm Crefisa, according to property records. In 2014, Chearavanont picked up the two units involved in the most recent deal for about $15.3 million.

2.) Mark Gerson and his wife Erica bought two units that had been combined at Alchemy Properties’ 250 West 81st for about $15.6 million, according to property records. The Upper West Side pad, which takes up a full floor, has eight bedrooms combined, according to StreetEasy. Stribling’s Alexa Lambert and Susan Wires are leading sales at the Robert A.M. Stern-designed property. Mark Gerson co-founded the Gerson Lehrman Group, a platform that connects businesses and experts. The couple is also known for their philanthropy; for example, they established the Gerson L’Chaim Prize for Outstanding Christian Medical Missionary Service.

3.) Filmmaker Paul Haggis, known for “Million Dollar Baby” and “Crash,” parted with his 2,948-square-foot condo at 388 West Broadway for $5.5 million, pricing the deal at about $1,865 per square foot. The buyer was recorded as Angela Lukin. The Soho unit was listed in September for $6 million, with Compass’ Phylliss Goldberg and Eric Marrus as the listing agents. Haggis picked up the West Broadway unit in 2010 for $3.95 million, according to property records. Last year, Haggis was accused of rape and sexual misconduct, which he has denied.
