Masrour Barzani, the prime minister of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, is the secret owner of a shiny retail building at 938 Washington in the heart of South Beach, Miami, that houses a 12,000-square-foot CVS, according to a new report.
Barzani bought the $18.3 million building in 2019, according to American Prospect magazine.
His family — which has ruled the area and much of its riches for decades — has also been outed as the buyer of some California mansions.
In 2019, Variety reported that two massive Beverly Hills mansions — boasting Corinthian columns, hand-carved architectural moldings and gold leaf — totaling $47 million were bought by Barzani-linked entities to create a compound.
“They are extremely wealthy, and [they] … don’t want you to know who they are and how they got their money,” Vanity Fair reported.
Back in New York, a stately maisonette at 1040 Fifth Ave., the classic and eternally chic Rosario Candela Building where Jackie Kennedy Onassis lived for 30 years, is about to hit the market for $3.65 million.
Most recently, the building has been home to actress Candice Bergen and her husband, developer Marshall Rose.
The three-bedroom, 2½-bathroom unit comes with a monthly maintenance fee of $4,920.
The Fifth Avenue-facing maisonette has been fully renovated with a chef’s kitchen, marble bathrooms and a grand corner living room overlooking Central Park.
