While his father, Alan Patricof, may be one of the world’s most renowned investors, Jon Patricof chose a different professional path from the patrician patriarch. As the COO of Tribeca Films, the younger Mr. Patricof spends his days crunching cinematic figures and yucking it up with Robert De Niro.
Still, he has managed not to stray too terribly far from his ilk. Mr. Patricof and his wife, Victoria, have just purchased a seven-figure apartment at 755 Park Avenue, just four block from his mother and father’s longtime New York digs. Perhaps they could not find a Tribeca loft to their liking.
Jon and Victoria Patricof spent $6 million on the four-bedroom, 4.5-bath spread, city records show, and by the looks of it, they will be living richly in their new place. A listing from Brown Harris Stevens agent Guida De Carvalhosa explains that the 9th floor pad has a private elevator landing, a wood burning fireplace and a library. The kitchen, naturally, includes a butler’s pantry, and the master suite features a jacuzzi. The three additional bedrooms are perfect for the Patricofs’ two children, Jon Jr. and Chloe, and grandpa if he wants to sleep over or needs a four-block change of scenery.
The home was purchased from businessman Peter Gordon and his wife, Lucia Hwong Gordon. Ms. Gordon is equally celebrated for her tireless (often fur-clad) social appearances and her classical music scores. The couple had bought the apartment just last year for $5.8 million, and list 655 Park Avenue as their current address on the property deed.
