Rebecca Moores, ex-wife of former Padres owner John Moores, has purchased a Manhattan condo for $55.5 million, according to New York real estate publications 6sqft.com and the realdeal.com.
She will have a full floor unit with four bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms in the One57 building, with unobstructed views of Central Park and Midtown Manhattan. Her unit measures 6240 square feet, with 580 square feet of outdoor space. The official buyer was the Rebecca Ann Moores Family Trust.
It is the second most expensive condo purchase of the year. Hedge-fund billionaire Bill Ackman shelled out $90 million for a unit in the same building, which was designed by French architect Christian de Portzanparc. One57 is the city's most expensive building.
