The most expensive home in America just sold for $238M

Ken Griffin set a record in the U.S. The Citadel founder closed on the $238 million penthouse at 220 Central Park South, so he’ll have a place to stay when he’s working in New York, a Citadel spokeswoman said. The purchase price makes it America’s most-expensive home.

Earlier this month, he paid about 95 million pounds ($122 million) for a 200-year-old home that overlooks London’s St. James’s Park about half a mile from Buckingham Palace.

The luxury condo tower in New York was built by Vornado Realty Trust, which said in October it was approaching 85 percent sold, with 26 full-floor units in contract. The Robert A.M. Stern-designed project faces the southern entrance to Central Park, with most of the 118 units offering unobstructed views. Griffin’s apartment is about 24,000 square feet (2,200 square meters). The deal was reported earlier Wednesday by the Wall Street Journal.
