UPDATE, August 7, 2:50 p.m.: Daniel Och is targeting an eye-popping $12,000 a foot for his penthouse atop 15 Central Park West, among the highest asks in the city.

Och, the founder of Och-Ziff Capital Management, shelled out $22 million for the penthouse in 2008, which he bought as a white box from Zeckendorf Development that he then customized. The roughly 4,700-square-foot apartment comes with three bedrooms and a library, along with 1,600 square feet of outdoor space.

The Corcoran Group’s Deborah Kern is listing the unit, which is priced at $57.5 million.

Like several other business magnates with 15 CPW addresses, the hedge-funder recently purchased a pad at Vornado Realty Trust’s 220 Central Park South, though it’s unclear what he paid or which unit he snagged.

An analysis by City Realty last year found that the Robert A.M. Stern-designed tower has aged quite well. The limestone property averaged $6,045 a square foot in sales between April 1, 2017 to March 31, 2018, the best mark in New York.

Elsewhere at 15 CPW, dentist Dr. Alexander Mikhailov is listing his 34th-floor apartment for $26.5 million. In January, a Brazilian beer magnate picked up a second unit there for $18 million.

Correction: A previous version of this article gave the incorrect asking price and price per square foot of the transaction should the unit sell at its asking price. The correct asking price is $57.5 million, and the price per square foot is about $12,200.
