Jeff Bezos has purchased a new apartment at a 24-story boutique condominium in Manhattan’s Flatiron neighbourhood, where he already owns the top four floors, for $16.13 million, reports the Wall Street Journal. On February 25, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos purchased an unit at the 212 Fifth Avenue condominium through a Delaware-registered limited liability company. According to the deed filed with the city on Thursday, the purchase was completed on April 7. Negotiations took place away from the open market. Property records reveal that the seller, whose identity is protected by a limited liability company, paid $11.25 million for the unit in April 2018.

In May 2019, Mr. Bezos paid $80 million via the same LLC for three apartments totaling 10,079 square feet on the 21st level, including this one, which is one of only two on the 20th floor. A message left for Jeff Bezos through Amazon was not immediately returned. The 56-year-old Amazon founder and CEO has a real-time estimated net worth of $142 billion, according to Forbes. There are three bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, a loft-style dining and living area, and multiple gallery walls in this 3,078-square-foot apartment. Large windows and vaulted ceilings are found throughout the house, as well as marble walls and worktops and radiant-heated Thassos stone floors. Developers Robert Gladstone and Joseph Sitt repurposed a century-old neo-Gothic industrial structure for the new construction. One of the building’s features is an on-site 24-hour doorman and concierge as well as an on-site fitness centre with yoga studio and an indoor golf simulator. Charles Kushner, the developer and father of Jared Kushner, is one of the building’s owners, according to media and property records. Peter Riguardi, president of the New York region for Jones Lang LaSalle; Ed Bass; and Rob Stringer are also owners.
