Meredith Bluhm-Wolf, daughter of real estate and casino magnate Neil Bluhm, has purchased a $20 million condo at Zeckendorf Development’s 520 Park Avenue.

Bluhm-Wolf went into contract to buy the sponsor unit on Jan. 21 and closed the next day, property records show.

Measuring 4,628 square feet, the 26th-floor unit has four bedrooms and five bathrooms. Its original offering price was $24.45 million, a document filed with the attorney general’s office shows.

The $20 million sale price means the deal pencils out at $4,321 per square foot.
