Dell Technologies founder and chief executive Michael Dell paid more than $100 million for a Manhattan penthouse, the most expensive home ever sold in New York City, according to The Wall Street Journal.

The deal for the nearly 11,000-square-foot apartment in One57, a 1,000-foot tower just south of Central Park, closed in 2014, but the buyer’s identity was unknown until this week. The $100.47 million sale may have set a record, but the residence only cost Dell about 0.4% of his fortune. Forbes pegs the Austin-based CEO’s net worth at over $23.3 billion.

Wondering what a record-setting New York City purchase entails? According to BusinessInsider, the six-bedroom, six bathroom penthouse, which is situated on the 89th and 90th floors, has two powder rooms, a steam room and 23-foot floor-to-ceiling windows. Additionally, One57’s residents have access to a pool, theater, gym and library on an amenities floor.

If you want to be Dell’s neighbor, you’re in luck. According to the luxury condominium building’s website, there are at least 10 available residences in the building. Prices start at $3.75 million for a one bedroom, 1.5 bathroom layout measuring just over 1,000 square feet.
