Ken Griffin Buys $13M Condo
The state’s richest man ($5.6B, says Forbes), Citadel founder and CEO Ken Griffin, paid $13.3M for a full-floor condo at the Waldorf Astoria (pictured), DNAinfo reports. The seller? CME CEO James McNulty, who paid $6.9M for the unit in 2010.
While Chinese investors have helped push high-end downtown condo demand and pricing back up, Griffin’s own purchases are the ones breaking records. He paid $15M for a penthouse in Park Tower in 2012 (Chicago’s most expensive condo sale ever at the time) after separating from his wife, Anne Dias Griffin, and is currently selling his three-bedroom on Michigan Avenue.
