Mikhail Segal, the director of Dynegy, the third-largest independent power production company in the U.S., has paid $12.95 million for a 38th-floor unit at 15 Central Park West, city records show. Last week we reported that Mr. Segal and his wife Sofia bought a $1 million "suite"–the posh building’s euphemism for staff quarters.
Mr. Segal worked at the Department of Energy in the former Soviet Union and went on to found LS Power Group in 1990. In 2006, LS Power Group’s assets were acquired by Dynegy for $2 billion. It looks like 15 Central Park West might be challenging the Plaza’s monopoly on Eastern European expats.
