[New York developer Steve] Witkoff’s son, Andrew Witkoff, died of an OxyContin overdose in 2011 at age 22, according to reports. The property is named for him, said a person familiar with the matter. Another source said it’s named in part as a tribute to Witkoff’s son but there were other reasons as well.
