NYC Penthouse sells for record $100 Million!
An anonymous buyer has purchased the penthouse at One57 in New York City's “Billionaire Row” in Manhattan for a staggering $100.47 million. The sale price of the penthouse sets a new record for private real estate sales in New York City.
The luxurious apartment at 157 W. 57th St. has expansive views of Manhattan and overlooks New York City's Central Park.
The penthouse is an astounding 11,000 square-feet and occupies the top two floors of the prestigious One57 building. The apartment has rosewood floors, Italian marble baths, huge ceiling space, six bedrooms, seven bathrooms and two powder rooms. The One57 building itself is equipped with a full gym, pool, steam room, jacuzzi, movie screening room and library.
The $100 million closing price amounts to a cost of $9,000 per square foot and sets a new benchmark for real estate prices in NYC. It is likely the first of many similar purchases to come in 2015.
For example, the penthouse at a new building being constructed on 520 Park Ave. is expected to hit the market later this year with a price tag of $130 million.
