Now Cohen is looking to sell his Upper East Side duplex for – are you sitting down? – $115 million. The 10,000-square-foot apartment at the Bloomberg Tower on Lexington Avenue boasts 6 bedrooms, 6 ½ baths, and stunning floor-to-ceiling views of Manhattan from the 51st and 52nd floors. Cohen bought the apartment – the only duplex in the building – in 2005 for a mere $24 million.
Cohen, 57, is a legend on Wall Street, having amassed a multibillion-dollar fortune by posting phenomenal investment returns averaging about 30 percent over the last two decades.
Putting his apartment up for sale isn’t Cohen’s only real estate activity. Last month he reached a deal to pay $60 million for an oceanfront property on Further Lane in East Hampton, on Long Island, according to a person with direct knowledge of the sale. The home is down the road from one he already owns.
Cohen’s primary residence is in Greenwich, Conn., which has a basketball court and a two-hole golf course, and he owns other real estate in New York. Last year, he purchased a property in the West Village on Washington Street for $38.8 million.
As for Cohen’s New York duplex, if $115 million is a bit steep for you, you can slum with a 15-room apartment atop the Sherry-Netherland, a steal at just $95 million.
