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.
