Ekaterina Rybolovleva, Ekaterina Rybolovleva is a mere 22-years-old but she just dropped $88 million on a 6,744-square foot apartment at 15 Central Park West in New York City. The apartment boasts 10 rooms, including four bedrooms, a wrap-around terrace and two wood-burning fireplaces. Who is this young lass with such astronomical wealth?
Ekaterina Rybolovleva is the daughter of Russian billionaire Dmitry Rybolovleva, whose wealth roots back to the sale of his stake in Uralkali, a fertilizer business, for $6.5 billion in 2010, according to Forbes. He is known in U.S. real estate circles for purchasing Donald Trump’s Palm Beach mansion, Maison de L’Amitie, in May 2008. He paid $95 million in cash.
In 2003 he was ranked No. 93 on Forbes’ billionaire list.
HauteLiving.com describes Ekaterina, also known as Kate, as one of Russia’s most eligible heiresses. Kate’s dowry is approximated at $2.5 billion.
She is also a competitive equestrian and is currently enrolled at an undisclosed university in the U.S. continuing her education.
Now Dmitry’s blonde offspring is delving into luxury real estate herself. She bought the apartment from Citigroup chairman Sandy Weill, who promises to donate the proceeds to charity. After paying the full asking price, Rybolovleva set the record for the highest individual transaction in New York City’s history.
Her representatives released an official statement:
“A company associated with Ekaterina Rybolovleva, daughter of a well-known businessman Dmitriy Rybolovlev, has signed a contract to purchase an apartment at 15 Central Park West, New York. The apartment is a condominium currently owned by the Sanford Weill Family.”
“Ms. Rybolovleva is currently studying at a U.S. university. She plans to stay in the apartment when visiting New York. Ms. Rybolovleva was born in Russia, is a resident of Monaco and has resided in Monaco and Switzerland for the past 15 years.”
