The purchaser is listed in public records as Abingdon Investment LLC. The New York Post recently reported that billionaire hedge-funder Steve Cohen had purchased a unit inside the building, according to chatter, but with the unit number unavailable.

Tim Crowley, managing director at Flank, which developed the condos, declined to comment on the sale or to identify the purchaser.

The unit measures 5,574 square feet and has 1,415 square feet of outdoor space, according to the Abingdon’s website. The home has three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, according to StreetEasy.

The property was formerly a 200-bed nursing home, but Flank acquired the 44,975-square-foot building for $33 million in January 2011.
