1 minute read

A penthouse on Manhattan’s “Billionaires’ Row” has sold for $100 million, a record for the most expensive apartment ever sold in Manhattan.

The $100.47-million apartment occupies the 89th and 90th floors of One57, a high-end apartment tower overlooking Central Park, the New York Daily News reports. It’s the first single-family home to sell for more than $100 million in the city’s history.

The 11,000-square-foot pad has six bedrooms, seven bathrooms, two powder rooms, and grand stellar Central Park and city views. There’s a gym in the building, a pool, Jacuzzi, a steam room, a library and a screening room.

The identity of the apartment’s buyer was not disclosed.

The ultra-wealthy have increasingly been buying New York luxury apartments as pied-à-terre in recent years. In some sections of Midtown, 50% of apartments are vacant at least 10 months out of the year.
