Here’s a rundown of the other ultra-wealthy hedge funders, executives, and heiresses who have bought (and in some cases, already sold) units in 220 Central Park South:

  • Singer Sting andwife Trudie Styler, purchase price and date unknown
  • Hong Kong heiress Karen Lo, purchased Sting’s apartment for $US50 million in 2018
  • Och-Ziff Capital Management chairman Daniel Ochs, purchase price and date unknown
  • Arel Capital founding partner Richard Leibovitch, purchased a $US26.2 million unit in December 2018

  • Cavalry Portfolio Services chairman Andrew Zaro, purchase price and date unknown
  • Paramount Group chairman Albert Behler, purchased a $US33.5 million unit in February 2019

Many of the tower’s major transactions went into contract in 2015, when the Manhattan real-estate market was stronger than it is today, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The 79-story tower, designed by Robert A.M. Stern, is expected to be completed later in 2019 at a total estimated cost of $US1.4 billion.
