We always knew Jonathan Sobel had a way with money. And now the former Goldman Sachs partner has done it again. Not only did Mr. Sobel shift from one of the finest buildings on the Upper East Side to perhaps the finest building in the all of Manhattan, but he managed to pocket $2 million in the process.
Talk about arbitrage!
Earlier this year, former Goldman Sachs partner Jonathan Sobel reluctantly agreed to sell his stunning Charles Gwathmey penthouse at the Verona for $21 million. And no wonder! It appears that Mr. Sobel and his wife Marcia Dunn had their eye on a 15-room duplex at that most glorious of all the glorious Upper East Side buildings: 740 Park Avenue.
Mr. Sobel and Ms. Dunn have filed documents with the city indicating that they are purchasing the shares for the sprawling four-bedroom C-line spread that spans the fourth and fifth floors. The apartment was most recently listed for $23 million with Sotheby’s brokers Meredyth Smith and Serena Boardman.
