Jeff Bezos, the founder and CEO of Amazon, has picked up 3 condos in 212 Fifth Avenue for roughly $80 million including a penthouse that was previously listed for $58 million. The purchase moved Madison Equities and Thor Equities, the developers of 212 Fifth Avenue, to announce that the ultra-luxury building is now sold out. Bezos’ spread includes a 10,000 SF triplex penthouse with 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and another 6,000 SF of outdoor space; in addition to 2 other condominium units in the building.
“212 Fifth Avenue epitomizes New York luxury and perfectly captures the rich history and elegance Madison Square Park exudes,” said Thor Equities CEO Joseph Sitt. “The neighborhood was carefully chosen for this acquisition and development, as it exemplifies the evolving tastes of the world’s wealth from traditional neighborhoods of years past.”
