Rotem Rosen is moving on.

That is, into a new penthouse.

The Israeli developer, having legally separated from his wife, Zina Sapir, has taken up residence in a 6,200-square-foot Park Avenue penthouse, a person familiar with the matter told The Real Deal.

His new pad, a top-floor unit at 502 Park Avenue, had an asking rent of $70,000 a month, according to its StreetEasy listing. With views over Park Avenue, the home includes five bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms. It also features 1,000 square feet of exterior space across five terraces.

Rosen previously lived with his wife and children in another penthouse unit, at 300 East 55th Street, where scenes for the 2013 Leonardo DiCaprio film “The Wolf of Wall Street” were shot. Zina Sapir, who has filed for divorce, purchased that condo for $7.6 million in 2005.

Rosen is in a legal battle with the Sapir family and is pursuing a $103 million claim to the estate of Tamir Sapir, who died in 2014 and was his father-in-law. Rosen previously was CEO of the Sapir Organization before a falling-out with his former brother-in-law, Alex Sapir.

Rosen declined to comment.
