British soccer club Chelsea’s owner Roman Abramovich closed on the last of three Upper East Side townhouses he plans to knock down to make way for a big mansion. His total spent so far to $80 million.

Abramovich closed on 13 East 75th Street last week for $30 million. He bought last year, the neighboring 11 East 75th Street for $29.7 million and 15 East 75th Street for $18.3 million.

The New York Daily News says he plans to makes way for a “massive urban chateau virtually unseen since Andrew Carnegie built his humble abode, now home to the Cooper-Hewitt Museum, in 1903.”
