Ken Griffin quietly buys condo for A REALLY LOUD $200 MILLION
Life has not been kind to Ken Griffin lately. He’s in the middle of a divorce, he’s been reduced to eating McDonald’s, and some guy won’t let him combine his Palm Beach plots to create a mini beachfront village for himself.
Thank God for small victories though:
“Despite reports that a Qatari mogul was closing in on a record $250 million spread at the under-construction tower to make a single penthouse in the sky, multiple sources tell Page Six the buyer is actually Griffin.”
That’s right, Page Six reports that while he and his wife battle over ownership of their multiple homes in New York, Chicago, Hawaii, etc., our man Ken calmly dropped somewhere around $200 million for a bunch of apartments in the Robert A.M. Stern-designed 220 Central Park South – the so-called “Billionaire’s Bunker.”
The pad boasts nothing yet since its still in construction, but Curbed has some pretty epic renderings of the penthouse – just once slice of the Citadel chief’s portfolio in the 950-foot tower – here. Check it out.
