$35 million.

That’s how much the grand penthouse at the top of Millennium Tower sold for, apparently to billionaire investor Jonathan Grayken.

A deed filed Wednesday in Suffolk County indicates that a holding company called Kilda LLC paid Millennium $35 million for the 13,000-square-foot condo, which, on the 60th floor of the new condo tower, is the highest residence ever built in Boston.

Real estate industry sources told the Globe in June that Grayken was the buyer. His name appears on neither the deed nor incorporation paperwork Kilda LLC filed with the Secretary of State. But Kilda’s state paperwork lists the address of Grayken’s home in Cohasset and a Dallas office that also houses Hudson Advisors, an arm of his investment fund. Two Hudson executives were listed as corporate officers. A Grayken spokesman did not immediately respond to messages seeking comment.

Grayken, who grew up in Cohasset and earned a fortune trading distressed real estate, renounced his US citizenship for tax purposes nearly two decades ago and now runs his business from the United Kingdom. That makes it unclear how many nights a year he can legally stay at his new digs in Downtown Crossing without making his income subject to US taxation.

Either way, he got a bit of a bargain. Millennium had listed the penthouse for sale at $37.5 million. So he paid 6.7 percent below the asking price. And according to the deed, his place comes with six parking spaces. Four of them are even reserved.

What a deal.
