The mysterious buyer of the $200 million-plus mega-unit at 220 Central Park South in Midtown might be none other than… Chicago-based hedge fund founder Ken Griffin?
Griffin, founder and CEO of Citadel, is in negotiations to combine multiple penthouses at Vornado Realty Trust’s under-construction luxury tower on the so-called “Billionaires’ Row.” The deal is not likely to be complete for up two years once construction is complete, the New York Post reported.
Griffin founded the hedge fund, which now has $26 billion under management, in 1990. He is worth a not-too-shabby $7 billion, and makes an income of $2.2 million per day, according to analysis of filings from his in-progress divorce from wife Anne Dias-Griffin.
