As was first reported by the Wall Street Journal in June, a buyer shelled out $157,500,000 for two units at 220 Central Park South. Property records showed the $82.5 million purchase of the 60th-floor unit and the $75 million purchase of the 61st-floor unit, both made using an LLC. But CNBC has now revealed that the buyer is billionaire Joe Tsai, Alibaba co-founder and owner of the Brooklyn Nets. The sale is the second biggest in New York City history and the third-largest ever in the U.S. The number-one spot occurred at the same Billionaires’ Row tower, with billionaire Ken Griffith’s $238 million purchase in early 2019.  Read more

This past December, Rhonda Sassoon, fourth wife and widow of famed hairdresser Vidal Sassoon, listed her stunning Soho loft. The home at 133 Wooster Street has come to be known as the “Dean & Deluca loft,” as Sassoon bought it from the grocer’s co-founder Jack Ceglic, who created his cookbook in the kitchen. Sassoon had hoped to break even on the sale–she purchased it for $5.8 million in 2014, the same price she recently listed it for–but property records show that the 3,600-square-foot apartment closed last month for $5.2 million.
