Enigmatic buyer lands $53 million Aman condo in New York
A mystery buyer has shelled out $53 million for a 21st-floor condo at Aman New York Residences in the Crown Building, across from Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue, property records show.
The 6,253-square-foot four-bedroom residence is just one floor above a $75 million penthouse that recently sold – New York’s most expensive sale of the year, as Gimme Shelter exclusively reported. (The penthouses themselves are located on different levels between floors 20 and 30 of the building.)
The $75 million condo was purchased through a front company, Albatross Apartment LLC, with the buyer being replaced by Douglas Elliman’s Patricia Vance.
It came with a panoramic terrace and the building’s only saltwater swimming pool.
The $53 million apartment was not listed and includes no outdoor space. This is a full floor unit and entered into a contract last month and is already closed. (“What luxury downturn?” a spokesperson joked.)
Both units closed in July and were managed by Amie Buchanan, Global Director of Residences for Aman.
There are 22 units in the Aman New York Residences, above the Aman New York Hotel, which opened this week. Condo owners can hire in-home hotel services, as well as become a member of the Aman Private Club and its three-story spa.
Aman also plans to build branded residences in Miami Beach and Beverly Hills.
