A hedge fund just bought the most expensive home in US history ̵
Ken Griffin is a Globe-trot house collector who also owns a $ 58.75 million condo in Chicago; a $ 60 million penthouse at Faena House in Miami; $ 250 million to build a Palm Beach association and one $ 122 million London mansion.
The record purchase was first reported by the Wall Street Journal.
Developer Steven Roth gathers tenants as if the building is their own private clubhouse, sources say.
Starchitect Robert AM Stern once told Posten that Roth was personally involved in all aspects of the building's design.
As a private club, limestone-clad buildings have private dining rooms along with a sports club, juice bar, library, and basketball.
While most buyers are still under cover, Griffin's new neighbors – when the building is in moving conditions – to include Sting and Trudie Styler, as the record previously reported.
Griffin's unit is a massive 24 00 0 square feet and takes up four floors – from the building's 50th to 53th floor.
