A professional athlete, a Peruvian business executive and a real estate CEO — these were some of the buyers and sellers in New York City’s luxury market last week. Here are the details.

1. Peruvian billionaire Carlos Rodriguez-Pastor sold a condominium at 181 East 65th Street, also known as the Chatham Condominium, for $8.4 million to “Cascata LLC.” The deal for the approximately 2,940-square-foot, five-bedroom unit pencils out to about $2,857 per square foot. He owns Intercorp, a financial services firm and the retail group InRetail Peru, and had acquired the Upper East Side pad for $6.5 million in 2009. Related Companies built the 32-story tower, designed by Robert A.M. Stern, in 2000. Leslie S. Modell of Sotheby’s International Realty had the listing.

2. Game, set, match: Canadian tennis player Milos Raonic — who at one point ranked No. 3 in the world singles ranking — closed on a penthouse in the London Terrace Towers at 470 West 24th Street for $7.55 million. The seller of the West Chelsea co-op was a trust. The three-bedroom apartment comes with an eat-in chef’s kitchen and over 1,000 square feet of private terrace space. It had been on and off the market since 2017; its most recent price was set at about $8.4 million in September, according to StreetEasy. The De Niro Team at Douglas Elliman had the listing.

3. An LLC tied to multifamily landlord Argo Real Estate snapped up a penthouse for $6.15 million at 132 West 22nd Street, the Stanwick condominium in Chelsea. The unit spans 2,844 square feet, pricing the deal at $2,162 per square feet. The penthouse last sold in 2008, for $5.15 million. It’s an investment property, according to a source.
