The hedge fund manager Mark Brodsky, founder of Aurelius Capital Management, looks to be the buyer behind Tower 84 LLC, which just shelled out $52.95 million for a full-floor unit at 157 West 57th Street on the—you guessed it—84th floor, according to city records. Mr. Brodsky’s name appears in the sale documents listed as “Manager” of the purchasing firm, and the “Mark Brodsky” who oversees a $3.4 billion hedge fund seems to us the most likely of all the world’s “Mark Brodskys” to purchase such a pad.
There’s no extant listing for the unit, but we’re going to guess that it looks pretty similar to this one, replete with the best of everything, especially views. We’ll refrain from repeating here the superlatives that have been applied after virtually every closed sale in the building. But if you’ve somehow missed out on them in the past or if, for reasons completely beyond our understanding, you’re interested in reading them again, you’re in luck. Not long ago, we compiled a list of One57 descriptions supplied in recent months by Times Big Ticket columnist Robin Finn. (Poor Ms. Finn, she doesn’t seem to have had much of a choice.)
