The Bezos speculation reminds me of that Parks & Recreation episode where Tom thinks a number of high-profile celebrities (Jay Z, Jason Statham, Lebron James) are potentially trying to buy Rent-a-Swag. The buyer for this unit is probably a no-name CEO of a private equity firm that only industry diehards know.

Mods, please feel free to move this comment to the pop culture / finance thread.

Lol nobody knows who bought it. I made a tongue in cheek comment about him as a joke. Not meant to be taken seriously.

^Nice shot of Vista (and OBP) from a real estate listing on the 76th floor of Aqua.
If we were to get only one more scraper under way this year wich would you choose?

I have to go with the spire redevelopment.

Glorious shot, it made my day!

I honestly wouldn't be surprised. That guy has been buying ridiculously expensive properties almost as a way to show people that he actually has the money, unlike a number of billionaires who are "on paper" billionaires.

I doubt it’s Griffin.

I think it’s Jeff Bezos. He needs a pad to hang out in and a place to park his second favorite Bugatti when he’s in town working at HQ2

8,000 square feet is enough room for a couple of helipads.

But in all seriousness - I think it's TUP who said this, but my money is also on it being the founder/CEO of some private company nobody's ever heard of who quietly has a bunch of money. Like Sanjay Shah of Vistex buying the Trump Tower penthouse for $17M. Probably similar.

There's no rule against rocket pads.

(more seriously, watch how quickly that rule would go away if HQ2 were at stake over it).

I never understood that rule. What is the reasoning behind it? Noise pollution? Anti terrorism? Preventing a daring prison yard escape at the roof of the Metropolitan Correctional Center?
