Vornado Realty Trust’s 220 Central Park South has closed another major sale for $64.1 million at the end of October. This is the building’s fourth closing for more than $60 million this year, with a record-crushing sale at $240 million in January. Two additional units were sold at $65.75 million and $61 million in July and September, respectively. The next priciest sale was for $55.5 million in October.
