$88 million Penthouse sold in New York
Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovlev’s daughter, Ekaterina, just purchased Manhattan’s most expensive penthouse for $88 million. Former Citigroup chairman Sandy Weill listed his 6,744-sq-ft apartment at 15 Central Park West for an astonishing $88 million in November, promising to donate the proceeds of the sale to charity. Located on the top floor of the 15 Central Park West building, Ekatarina’s new home features panoramic views of central park. The apartment, in one of the toniest post-war buildings in Manhattan, includes 2,077 square feet of balcony space overlooking Manhattan, walk-in closets, a den, a drawing room, 10 rooms including 4 bedrooms, a private gallery, a living room, a formal dining room, a bar and 2 wood burning fireplaces.
Rybolovleva is currently studying at an undisclosed U.S. university and plans to stay in the apartment when visiting New York. According to a source familiar with the sale, she paid the full asking price of $88 million, setting a record for highest individual transaction in New York City history. Ekatarina’s father Dmitry is the 93rd richest person in the world, with an estimated net worth of around $9.5 billion. He currently owns a large fertilizer manufacturer in Russia called OAO Uralkali.
