Hedge fund titan secretly buying home in ‘billionaires’ bunker’

http://pagesix.com/2015/09/07/divorc...900.1436243492

Quote:
Billionaire hedge fund titan Ken Griffin is quietly buying a $200 million-plus home in the so-called “billionaires’ bunker” at 220 Central Park South.

Despite reports that a Qatari mogul was closing in on a record $250 million spread at the under-construction tower to make a single penthouse in the sky, multiple sources tell Page Six the buyer is actually Griffin.

According to the article, that guy has a monthly gross income of $100 million, wich after taxes becomes a net income of about 68.5 million!!!! So the guy can afford an astronomically priced property as this, with just three months of his income... Oh I feel poor!!!

By the way, the article also mentions that he has to pay $1 million in child support after his recent divorce. It may sound like a lot, but for him it is actually a bargain, it is like somebody earning a net income of almost $7000 a month (not bad at all) has to pay just $100 in child support.

$1.000.000,- child support... Well there's half a day's income down the drain

Had no idea this was at street level, let alone above ground. Can't wait for it to rise.

But for $250 million I can't help but think there are better penthouse options in the city. Such as any of the towers that don't have a 60% taller juggernaut going up right behind them lol.

For now, this tower looks like a bunker.

Just imagine, that huge concrete block will be covered in creamy limestone. It's going to look monumental.

Checking my bearings here... Is the crane currently standing in the location of the future fountain?

Looks right, maybe tucked even a little closer to the building, like where that Expensive Luxury Automobile is parked.
