Jeff Bezos, the richest man in the world, and MacKenzie Bezos recently announced that they had finalized the terms of their divorce.
MacKenzie Bezos granted Jeff Bezos her interests in The Washington Post and Blue Origin and 75% of the Amazon stock they owned, but the couple did not announce how they’d split up their considerable real-estate holdings.
Now, the Amazon CEO is reportedly on the hunt for an NYC apartment, The New York Post reported.
The Bezos family owns at least six properties across the country, including two neighboring Beverly Hills mansions, a massive estate in a Seattle suburb, and apartments in a historic NYC building.
Days after Jeff Bezos and MacKenzie Bezos announced they’d finalized the terms of their divorce, the Amazon CEO is reportedly apartment hunting in New York City, The New York Post reported.
The Amazon CEO remains the richest person in the world with a net worth of $115 billion, while MacKenzie Bezos is now worth $37 billion, making her the fourth-richest woman in the world.
Now, Jeff Bezos is looking to spend $60 million on a new home in the city, according to the Post, which would grow his already massive collection of real estate.
It’s still unknown how the Bezos family will split up their real-estate holdings, which include six massive properties across the country. A 2017 Land Report named Bezos the country’s 28th-largest landowner. As Business Insider’s Tanza Loudenback previously reported, everything acquired throughout the marriage from real estate to income is considered joint property in the Bezos’ home state of Washington.
From two neighboring Beverly Hills mansions to a sprawling estate in an exclusive Seattle suburb, here are the six estates the Bezos own in the US.

Jeff Bezos lives in a nearly 29,000-square-foot estate in Medina, Washington.
Bezos owns two homes in Medina spanning 5.3 acres.
According to the Wall Street Journal, he paid $10 million for the property in 1998.
One home is a 20,600-square-foot, five-bedroom, four-bathroom house, and the other is an 8,300-square-foot, five-bedroom, four-bathroom home rumored to have cost $53 million.
Medina, located on a peninsula just across Lake Washington from Seattle, is an exclusive suburb that’s also home to Bill Gates, as well as other Microsoft bigwigs, tech entrepreneurs, and telecom magnates.
Many of the neighborhood’s mansions are hidden away behind gates and protected by elaborate security systems.
Bezos’ estate underwent a $28 million renovation in 2010.
The home, which sits right on the shores of Lake Washington, includes 310 feet of private shoreline and a boathouse.
