America's Most Expensive Apartment To List at $150M
The Chetrit Group will reportedly list the triplex penthouse at Manhattan's Sony Building at $150M, easily making it NYC's priciest home and briefly stealing the superluxe condo thunder from the new pencil towers redefining the skyline. Per The Real Deal, here's what $150M will get whichever LLC is lucky enough to claim the prize: 21.5K SF on the 33rd through 35th floors accessed by a private elevator, eight bedrooms, eight bathrooms and the requisite 10 powder rooms.
The elusive real estate investor Joe Chetrit was the lead buyer in a 2013 deal to scoop up the former Sony HQ at 550 Madison Avenue for $1.1B. The record-breaking penthouse will tower over 95 other castles in the sky that all told should lead to a $1.8B sellout. That's not quite as lofty a figure as 432 Park ($2.4B) and One57 ($2B). But the penthouse price tag, if met, would eclipse the current Manhattan sales record of $100.5M One57 set late last year. The price also trails 432 Park in the per square foot category: $6,975 to $10,489 to that building's $130M penthouse.
Still, it comes in at number two on the list of America's priciest homes, trailing only Jeff Greene's 53K SF Beverly Hills Xanadu.
