Griffin is one of several billionaires who have purchased units in Faena House. Others include Alan Howard and Lloyd Blankfein, both of whom have already closed, while Leon Black and Larry Gagosian are also rumored to have contracts on units.
Over the last two years, Griffin has also broken real estate records in New York and Chicago, where his fund is based. Earlier this year, he paid $200 million for a condo in New York, setting a new record there. Last year, he paid $30 million for a condo in Chicago, the most expensive real estate purchase in that city’s history.
