Billionaire hedge-fund manager Steve Cohen is buying the New York Mets baseball team in a deal that will take five years to complete, CNN reported.

In May, Cohen offloaded his New York City luxury condo for $US30 million.

The condo, which is in the Abingdon, a luxe condominium building in the West Village, was nicknamed the “Abingdon Mansion.” It sold after just 32 days on the market, according to Christie’s International Real Estate, which represented the sale.

Cohen, who’s worth an estimated $US13.6 billion, runs investment firm Point72 Asset Management. He bought the home for $US23.4 million in 2013.

The sale was represented by Erin Boisson Aries from Christie’s International Real Estate.

Here’s a look at the three-story luxury condo.
