The architect behind the One Vanderbilt skyscraper has locked down his own pad a short walk away.

James and Alison von Klemperer picked up a 1,650-square-foot sponsor unit at HFZ Capital Group‘s 16 West 40th Street for $4.85 million, property records filed Wednesday show. The deal prices out to about $2,939 per square foot.

An email sent to Kohn Pedersen Fox, the architectural firm of which James von Klemperer is president and design principal, was not immediately returned.

British Architect David Chipperfield designed the hotel-condo project, dubbed the Bryant, which sits on the southern edge of Bryant Park.

The von Klemperer’s unit was listed by Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group for about $5.3 million, according to StreetEasy.

One Vanderbilt is a 1.75 million-square-foot, 1,401-foot-tall office tower under construction in Midtown. Kohn Pedersen Fox was awarded the 2018 NY Merit Award in Urban Design for One Vanderbilt from the American Institute of Architects.

Sentinel Capital Partners, a private equity firm led by David Lobel, recently signed a 15-year lease for the 51st floor of the building, which is 59 percent leased.

Construction has reached the 73rd floor and is set to top out this summer.
