Bodour Al Qasimi, the founder of the Kalimat Publishing House and number 34 on Forbes’ most powerful Arab women of 2014 list, bought a $14.25 million unit at 15 Central Park West, together with her father Sultan A. Alqasimi, according to Friday’s property records.
The pair bought unit 2A in the Robert A.M. Stern-designed building. Nightingale And Orchard LLC, or Evan Marks, is the seller. The nearly 2,900-square-foot unit last changed hands in October 2008 for $7.6 million. The apartment has three bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms.
Sultan Al Qasimi is a member of the Supreme Council of the United Arab Emirates and rules the emirate of Sharjah.
According to property records, the royals already own a unit on the fourth floor of the Zeckendorf-developed building.
The condominium development is one of Manhattan’s hottest buildings. Earlier this month, fashion designer Elie Tahari bought two condos for a combined $25.3 million. In May, a penthouse at 15 CPW was sold for $48 million.
