Barely two weeks ago, The Observer wrote about Sheridan Mitchell Lorenz (daughter of Texas natural-gas billionaire George Mitchell), Alice R. Gottesman (daughter of Warren Buffett’s billionaire friend David Gottesman) and Roy Judelson (son of Gulf & Western co-founder David Judelson) all buying new Manhattan real estate. And who could forget January’s news that Hummer magnate Ira Rennert would be paying over $60 million for two Park Avenue co-ops for two daughters?
Children of Turkish billionaires are getting in on the fun, too. According to city records, young Murat Ozyegin, whose father Husnu Ozyegin is one of the 250 richest people on the planet, just paid $6.2 million for an apartment on East 66th Street. His place has 2,458 square feet, three bedrooms, a 16-foot-long gallery, a living room, a dining room, a maid’s room and a breakfast room off the kitchen.
According to a company Web site, Mr. Ozyegin, who holds a BS in Industrial Management and Economics from Carnegie Mellon (and an MBA from Harvard), now works for his father. His previous employer was Bear Stearns.
