The purchaser was CPV46LLC, which has the address of a St. Petersburg, Fla. home owned by Frederick and Janine Arnold. The price tag was about $59.6 million for the condominium.

According to a Tampa Bay Times story from 2015, Frederick Arnold is an attorney and was CFO of Convergex and Janine Arnold is an interior designer. (Their purchase of a 28th-floor penthouse was among the priciest home buys in the Tampa Bay area that year.)

Convergex was an agency-focused global brokerage that in 2017 was acquired by financial services firm Cowen Group for $116 million.

The buy follows a string of other recent high-priced closings at the 70-story Billionaires’ Row tower.

In October, an LLC tied to David and Constance Littman shelled out $55 million for a 45th-floor condo. Another entity earlier this month spent over $64 million on a 49th-floor pad.

Sales at the property began in 2015 and closings commenced in 2018. Vornado said it paid off the building’s debt in July. It’s not publicly known when #46A went into contract.
