Pharmaceutical investment mogul Behzad Aghazadeh set a record in Brooklyn with his purchase of a townhouse and carriage house for a combined $16 million.

The Brooklyn Heights buys closed in May but weren’t recorded until Nov. 13. Both were off-market purchases. PincusCo first reported news of the sale, and the New York Post revealed the identity of the buyer.

Aghazadeh wants to combine the two properties into one megamansion.

He purchased the landmarked 81 Pierrepont Street brownstone for $12.5 million and the carriage house behind it at 35 Love Lane, for $3.5 million, according to the Post. The 8,000-square-foot Pierrepont Street property would need city approval for any change. Aghazadeh’s architect, Baxt Ingui, submitted plans to the Landmarks Preservation Commission.

The $16 million purchase broke the $15.5 million record set by actor couple Jennifer Connelly and Paul Bettany, when they bought their Brooklyn Heights townhouse. Photographer Jay Maisel also paid $15.5 million for his Cobble Hill townhouse, according to the report. Matt Damon holds the record for Brooklyn properties with his $16.7 million penthouse purchase.
