"212 Fifth Avenue epitomizes New York luxury and perfectly captures the rich history and elegance Madison Square Park exudes," Thor Equities CEO Joseph Sitt said. Thor Equities partnered with Madison Equities to develop 212 Fifth Avenue.

"The neighborhood was carefully chosen for this acquisition and development, as it exemplifies the evolving tastes of the world's wealth from traditional neighborhoods of years past."

Purchase

Bezos initially set a budget for $60mn

Reportedly, Bezos had been on the look-out for a regal accommodation, even after Amazon canceled plans to set up HQ2 in New York.

With a net worth of $140bn, Bezos set a budget of $60mn and was looking at the 220 Central Park South listing at one point.

However, he went with 212 Fifth Avenue, which went on the market in 2016 for $68.5mn.
