Andor Founder Buys $39 Million Manhattan Apartment

Dec 20 2012 | 10:43am ET

Andor Capital Management founder Daniel Benton has bought a Manhattan penthouse for $39 million.

Benton's new digs, at 730 Park Avenue, were quietly offered for sale after a neighboring penthouse, owned by the late private-equity manager Ted Forstmann on 70th Street, fetched $40 million in June. Benton's duplex was originally offered for $35 million.

The apartment sits on the top two floors of the 20-story building, at 71st Street on New York's Upper East Side. It features 12 rooms, five terraces and views of Central Park. There is a grand staircase, a solarium and a breakfast room with a glass ceiling.

Benton closed Andor in 2008 and retired. The firm, which once managed $2 billion, focused on technology. He and his wife already life in the building, in a lower-floor 12-room duplex they bought in 2007 for $21 million.
