One couple has purchased both brand-new condos for sale at 147 South Park for a combined price of $8 million, according to a report from SocketSite. The 3-bedroom, 3.5-bath second-floor unit sold for $3.05 million, while the top-floor, 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath unit sold for $4.995 million. (The ground floor has storage, a lobby and two parking spaces.)
At a combined 5,300 square feet, that works out to about $1,500 a square foot. According to SocketSite, the previous record for a condo in the neighborhood was a 2,600-square-foot three-bedroom penthouse unit that sold for $3.5 million in 2011 at just over $1,300 a square foot.

SocketSite didn’t reveal who the buyers of 147 South Park are, but gave a “blind item”-style hint as to where they might have come up with the $8 million to seal the deals: “While neither works at Google, Apple, Facebook or Twitter, one half of the couple did co-found a software company which was recently acquired by another which has been around since the 80s.”
