Mystery NYC financier drops $33M on Miami ‘pied a terre’

2

We hear that the buyer of a $33 million Miami penthouse triplex is a New York based financier — who paid all-cash for the sleek “pied a terre” after touring it for less than five minutes, sources tell Gimme exclusively.

“He’s a New Yorker, and really busy. He flew in, walked in, spent three minutes, walked out, and went back to New York a few hours later,” our spy said. The Wall St Journal was the first to report the sale.

While $33 million sounds high, it is actually $7 million off the initial asking price — and includes the Italian-made furniture, from Visionnaire, which was not originally part of the deal, say sources close to the deal.

The building, Arte, is shaped like a pyramid. Designed by architect Antonio Citterio, it features just 16 units. The developers include Alex Sapir, the son of a late, Soviet-born real estate mogul Tamir Sapir — who had financial ties to both the former Soviet government and to president Donald Trump — and developer Giovanni Fasciano.

The 7,700-square-foot unit came fully furnished — it features five bedrooms and a private rooftop pool. Building amenities include indoor and outdoor pools, a gym and tennis courts.

The building’s sales are led by Douglas Elliman Development Marketing. The buyer was repped by Coldwell Banker’s Julian Cohen and referred by New York broker/reality TV star Ryan Serhant of Serhant.
