The deal is the third in New York City to top nine figures.Earlier this year, hedge funder Ken Griffin paid a record $238 million for the top penthouse at 220 Central Park South. In 2014, Michael Dell paid $100.47 million for a penthouse at One57.At 9,800 square feet, the latest unit traded for $10,204 per foot. The median sale price in Manhattan’s luxury market was $4.8 million during the third quarter, down 17.3 percent year-over-year, according to appraisal firm Miller Samuel.The deal is the latest in a string of high-priced closings at Vornado Realty Trust’s 220 CPS. Most of the deals likely went into contract before the market softened. A recent analysis by The Real Deal shows that the median time between contract and closing a unit at the luxury tower was nearly three years. The buyer of unit 49A, for example, waited almost five years before closing on a $64 million condo.ADVERTISEMENTSome of 220 CPS’ famous buyers include Sting, who paid $65.7 million for a penthouse, as well as Daniel Och of Och-Ziff Capital Management and David Mandelbaum, a Vikings owner and early backer of Vornado’s Steve Roth.

It was the Team Penske driver’s eighth stage win of the season.Landon Cassill’s hard hit in Turn 1 brought out the caution on Lap 42 and led to Logano and Ryan Newman staying out, while Jimmie Johnson took two tires in an effort to gain stage points. Both Newman and Johnson are in a battle to make the 16-driver playoffs in the regular-season finale with two spots up for grabs. The gambles by both paid off and resulted in stage points due to their respective fifth- and sixth-place finishes in Stage 1. Clint Bowyer and Daniel Suarez did not score stage points — Bowyer was the first driver outside the top 10.RELATED: Stage 1 resultsErik Jones and Brad Keselowski’s hard wreck in Turn 2 brought the end of the stage under yellow. Both drivers were running in the top 10 when the incident occurred. Jones turned sideways, making contact with Keselowski and sending both cars into the wall. Keselowski’s hit into the tire barrier was particularly hard, and his No. 2 car came to a stop on its side. The defending race winner dropped the window quickly and exited his vehicle.Kyle Larson finished second in the stage, while polesitter Kevin Harvick finished in third.Some playoff bubble drivers found trouble in the opening stage. On Lap 11, Suarez’s No. 41 Stewart-Haas Racing Ford made contact with the wall. Suarez entered the race as the last driver in the provisional playoff field. During the ensuing caution, a tight pit road led to contact between Chase Elliott, Austin Dillon and Bubba Wallace. All of that jammed up traffic also impacted Johnson, who had to make a return trip to pit road to fix some damage. Johnson was able to rally for some stage points. 8Jimmie JohnsonHendrick Motorsports3 2Kyle LarsonChip Ganassi Racing9 6Jimmie JohnsonHendrick Motorsports5 10Aric AlmirolaStewart-Haas Racing1 PlaceDriverTeamPts 9William ByronHendrick Motorsports2 9Alex BowmanHendrick Motorsports2center_img 1Joey LoganoTeam Penske10 3Kevin HarvickStewart-Haas Racing8 2Kyle LarsonChip Ganassi Racing9 Kevin Harvick scored the fifth stage win of his 2019 Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series season in the Big Machine Vodka 400 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
