The woman’s daughter will be in wealthy company as the building, which will be finished next year, will also be the future home to several international billionaires.

According to the New York Times, the billionaire buyers include at least two others from China, a Canadian, a Nigerian and a Briton, as well as several wealthy Americans.

The building’s developers said that a handful of buyers were "significant Forbes billionaires".


Kevin Brown, senior vice president for Sotheby's International Realty, told China's state-run news channel CCTV News 

this week that he was touring Manhattan with the mother when he asked her why she wanted to buy.

"She said that it had to do with her daughter, who was either going to go to Columbia or NYU, maybe Harvard, and so 

she needed to be in the centre of the city, and that was the reason why she was picking this one particular apartment," he said.

"I said, 'How old is your daughter?' And she said, 'Well, she's two.' And I was just shocked."
