Last year, hedge fund titan David Tepper famously bought a $43.5 million oceanfront mansion in Sagaponack–and promptly tore it down so he could build one twice the size.
Well, we’re pleased to report that construction on Tepper’s new abode appears to be humming along.
A new foundation has been poured, and the place looks like it will be at least twice the size of the knockdown for which Tepper paid a record price.
Our friend Cully, an aerial photographer, recently swung by in his helicopter and snapped these stunning photos of the ongoing construction at the Tepper residence. He also sent along some photos from last summer.
Here’s what Tepper’s Gibson Lane plot looked like on February 28th:
