The buyer who shattered local real estate records by buying a $60 million Miami Beach penthouse late last month is South Florida-born hedge fund billionaire Kenneth Griffin, according to a report in The New York Times.

The Times reported that “people familiar with the deal” said Griffin, the founder and CEO of Chicago-based hedge fund Citadel, bought the eight-bedroom penthouse at Faena Housein Mid-Beach for $4,794 per square foot.

Griffin grew up in Boca Raton and attended Boca Raton Community High School, according to a profile in Chicago Magazine.
