An 8,000-square-foot penthouse in midtown Manhattan is on sale for $100 million, the most expensive apartment currently on the market in New York.
Occupying the 73rd, 74th and 75th floors of the luxury condominium high rise, the octagonal-shaped apartment touts 8,000 square feet of interior space including six bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a media room, 20-person dining room, a formal gallery, and a conference room.
The master suite encompasses the entire top floor. In addition to the main elevator, a second private internal elevator moves solely between the apartment’s three levels.
An “added luxury” of the property is an additional staff apartment located on the 72nd floor alongside a wine cellar capable of storing up to 1,000 bottles.
The penthouse has 135 windows and each floor is encircled by 360-degree wraparound terraces. Boasting views of the entire island of Manhattan, the terraces are apparently the city’s highest.
The seller is real estate developer Steven Kla. Klar bought the property for $4.5 million in 1993, and spent at least as much renovating it.
The sale, being brokered by Raphael De Niro would set a new record, which is currently reported at $88 million for another penthouse with views over Central Park.
