A Very Generous Donation: Weill Finds Buyer for $88M ‘Charity’ Apartment

All smiles.

Brooklyn boy Sandy Weill, the former CEO of Citigroup, made waves when he put his full-floor 15CPW home on the market for $88 million. In a highly publicized (and carefully calculated) PR move, however, he quickly announced that proceeds of the sale would in fact go to charity. Well, it looks like some hospital or synagogue is about to be rolling in some serious dough, as Mr. Weill has found a buyer, the Post reports.

An agreement has been reached for the sale, and unsurprisingly the buyer is reportedly foreign. We suspect either a wealthy Chinese businessman or some shipping titan trying to get his assets the Helios out of Greece.

The floor plan proudly remains, however, depicting the condo’s mouthwatering layout.

We hope the elliptical bedroom comes with a rotating bed.

    If the buyer is a “shipping titan trying to get his assets the Helios out of Greece,” my money is on it being a member of the Goulandris family.  After all, the Goulandris’ were the the original owners of the Mayflower Hotel, which is now 15 CPW.  Don’t fret, Mr. Goulandris.  George Stephanopoulos will be your new neighbor, and I’m just down the street over on Riverside!
