A pair of condos at 15 Central Park West have sold, city records show. A buyer listed as Jay Investments LLC paid $20.5 million for Unit 11A. A few minutes later, a $15.6 million condo sale popped up in city records.
The second deed lists a pair of LLC’s, G-Ike Management and L-Stone Management, as the buyers of Unit 15C. Both of the companies are registered to the same North Carolina address as a senior vice president at Capital Research and Management, Greg Ireland, and wife Lori. The firm is the largest Yahoo shareholder according to Portfolio magazine, so perhaps Mr. Ireland bought the swanky new apartment in anticipation of Microsoft’s possible purchase (or takeover) of Yahoo.
The same lawyer filed both deeds, but he was out of the office when we tried to verify the buyers’ identities.
