According to the Wall Street Journal, two adjacent Fifth Avenue apartments listed by the estate of the late copper heiress Huguette Clark have sold, for $12M and $19M each. WSJ didn't name the buyer, but The Real Estalker seems convinced that the purchaser in question is none other than the Prime Minister of Qatar, otherwise known as Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani. The P.M. might go even further by making an offer on a set of adjacent apartments one floor below the Clark spread, listed together for $25M. If he makes it past the co-op board, the fabulously wealthy Qatari—who spent something like $250M on his yacht—would possess 15,000 square feet of coveted park-front space with more than 40 rooms.
