Jeff Bezos, one of the world’s richest men and the founder of Amazon and Blue Origin, paid $23 million for a 4,155-square-foot condominium inside 212 Fifth Avenue, an iconic skyscraper in the Flatiron District where He has four other properties. According to several US news websites, the condo was sold to a holding company, Gramercy Hudson LLC, while the agreement does not mention Bezos. It is represented by the Seattle-based law firm Perkins Coe, with Amazon being its client.
Property records filed with the city show that the deal was agreed at the end of July and was finalized earlier this month. The luxury 4-bedroom, 4-bathroom apartment includes marble floors and large windows. There is also a view of the World Trade Center and Madison Square Park.
According to the property website, the building’s amenities include a health club, a golf simulator, a games room and a movie-screening space. After buying this new apartment in front of New York’s Madison Square Park, Bezos now has a property investment of $ 119 million in a single building.
According to the New York Post, Bezos’ last ambition is to merge the apartments into one villa. Bezos already has $96 million in real estate at 212 Fifth Avenue, which includes a penthouse unit, two units below it, and a $16 million condo purchased in April 2020.
Bezos previously paid $23 million for the former Textile Museum in Washington, DC, and four condominiums in a building overlooking Central Park on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. He also has properties in Seattle, Texas and California.
The business tycoon has a net worth of $189 billion, making him the richest person in the world. He resigned as the CEO of Amazon in July. Bezos has made record-breaking real estate investments since splitting from Mackenzie Scott in 2019.
