Ritz Carlton Penthouse for Sale: $14 million, Ctd.

I met Gabe Kaplan once. Dude has some janky facial hair.

I was doing a little poking around in public records to find out who might be selling that penthouse. Here is a list of owners of the top floors of the Ritz: Randall Van Wolfswinkel, Trevor Rees-Jones, and a trust for Gabriel Kaplan. The first two are known quantities. RVW is a home-building magnate. TRJ is a oil and gas guy. But that third fellow? Does Mr. Kotter really own one of the top-floor condos at the Ritz? He just might. The guy does spend some time in Dallas. Given his TV residuals and his poker skills, I’m guessing he could afford it.

    RVW also has a gorgeous home he built in the last year or so on Lakeside in HP and is looking to purchase property in Montecito/Santa Barbara, as well.

    Mr. Kotter can be spotted at the Ritz and spends a lot of time in DFW.

  • Alan Peppard had the scoop last year (paywall): http://www.dallasnews.com/entertainment/columnists/alan-peppard/20110217-gabe-kaplan-gets-a-penthouse-view-of-dallas-.ece No question it’s him. This makes me want to spend a lot of time at the Rattlesnake Bar, hoping to bump into him.

    Headington Reality & Capital owns them, check DCAD. I think it is more than safe to assume that it is Tim Headington.

    I think it’s interesting that just a few months ago, the google map sat image has nothing on those balconies.
