The chairman and chief executive officer of the financial services firm Cantor Fitzgerald, Howard Lutnick, has a new home. He paid $22.75 million for a 14, 000-square-foot condominium in Bal Harbour, Miami Beach, Florida, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal.

This is marked down from the original listing of $24.9 million. The price was probably dropped since the apartment had been on the market for more than a year.

The business executive reportedly closed the deal in early May. The condominium is located on the twenty fifth floor of the south tower of the St. Regis Bal Harbour Resort and Residences. The apartment was originally divided into five separate units.

The St. Regis is an oceanfront condominium apartment building and hotel which opened in 2012. It has nearly 1, 000 feet of ocean frontage and offers it residents a gym, swimming pool and hotel amenities which include a butler service, housekeeping and pet sitting services.

The apartment was acquired from its original owner, Yuriy Kosyuk, CEO of the Ukrainian agro-industrial company MHP, who bought the five original units unfinished.

He removed the interior walls in order to create one large apartment with an open floor plan, but never completed construction. The unit is just an empty space today with two elevator entrances and 4, 000 square feet of terraces, with views of the Atlantic Ocean, downtown Miami and the Intracoastal Waterway. Lutnick will be able put up to 11 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms in the apartment. Five parking spaces were included with it.
