Dec 14 2011 | 3:51am ET

The Man Group’s Pierre Lagrange has a luxurious new pied-à-terre in New York.

The GLG Partners founder has closed on a three-bedroom duplex in one of the city’s hottest neighborhoods. The 3,634-square-foot penthouse on West 23rd Street is in the HL23 condominium, which sits above New York’s High Line Park. It was listed for $12 million.

The apartment features a 1,173-square-foot wraparound terrace on the top floor and three bathrooms.

Lagrange and his wife, Catherine, divorced earlier this year, selling his mansion in London for £19 million. He now lives with fashion designer Roubi L’Roubi. Last month, he sued a New York gallery for selling him an allegedly fake Jackson Pollock painting; he’ll find plenty of other galleries in his new neighborhood.
