Jeff Bezos Increases His New York Real Estate Portfolio

19 April 2020

Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos, recently purchased yet another piece of property in New York. The billionaire entrepreneur’s most recent purchase is an addition to one of his properties in the Big Apple.

According to New York Real Estate records, Bezos paid $16 million for the apartment which is adjacent to the $80 million in condos he already owns.

The 3,000 square foot apartment has three bedrooms, three and a half baths, “oversized windows, high coffered ceilings, marble walls and countertops as well as radiant-heated Thassos stone floors,” according to a previous listing, reports Mansion Global.

Bezos signed the contract for the property in February however due to New York real estate laws which require a certain period before closing Bezos had to wait for the finalization of the sale.

Already the world’s richest man, Jeff Bezos added another $24 billion to his fortune since the coronavirus pandemic began.
