We’ve put together a list of the three most expensive listings at the moment. These luxurious penthouses are legendary, luxurious and available! Get your checkbooks ready!
1) The Woolworth Building’s Penthouse Suite- $110 Million
The Woolworth Building is located at 223 Broadway, in one of the Big Apple’s most desirable neighborhoods. Interestingly enough, the building was the tallest in the world until 1930. It was completed in 1913 by architect, Cass Gilbert and was given an extensive re-vamp in 2010. The first 18 floors are home to businesses, luxury condos exist on floors 19-49, and the top 7 floors have been transformed into a spacious penthouse suite…and it’s on the market! Extensive work had to be done to make it into a livable space, taking a total of 3 years to complete. The neo-gothic cathedral style building is regarded as one of New York’s most historic and iconic. For a whopping $110 million, you can own not only a piece of NYC’s history, but an exquisite 9,710 square foot home as well! The suite is known as the pinnacle because of it’s location… in the iconic green copper crown of course! The penthouse boasts 24-foot ceilings, it’s own private elevator, a 400 square foot observatory and sweeping views of the city, from the World Trade Center all the way to the East River. Snag this once in a lifetime opportunity before it’s gone!
2) 432 Park Ave- $95 Million
432 Park, also known as Midtown’s “Billionaires’ Row”, is truly special for a number of reasons. For starters, at 96 floors, it’s the tallest apartment tower in the Western Hemisphere, nearly 150 feet taller than the Empire State Building! If that’s not enough, the 8,255 square foot pad boasts 12 foot ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, private elevator, library and panoramic views of Central Park and all of Manhattan. Oh, and you have a state-of-the-art pool and gym at your convenience. We can’t even begin to imagine the views at 1,271 feet in the air…some Instagram worthy pics for sure! The building, which is comprised of 104 luxury condominium complexes, was designed by Uruguayan architect, Rafael Vinoly. For the wine-lovers out there, you can request a climate-controlled wine cellar for a mere $320,000…get ready for some epic wine nights! Residents can enjoy 30,000 square feet of private amenities such as a Michelin Star restaurant, outdoor terrace and a state-of-the-art gym with a 75-foot-pool. Thought that was all? 432 Park also boasts a full-service spa ensuring tenants won’t have to leave the complex for a day of pampering…talk about luxury!
3) The Atelier- $85 Million
Located in Hell’s Kitchen, an extremely sought-after area of Manhattan, Greek architect Costas Kondyli designed The Atelier Tower. The 9 units on the 45th floor have been combined into one massive penthouse suite…you got that right, a full-floor apartment all to yourself! The 635 W 42nd Street $85 million pad has been on the market for 4 years, and the owner isn’t dropping the price tag. But, he has added some exclusive (and equally outrageous!) perks to attract buyers. Included with the apartment is a $1 million yacht with docking fees for 5 years, court side season tickets to the Brooklyn Nets dinner, and a luxurious summer rental in the Hamptons. Thought that was insane, you can also dine every week at the Michelin Star French restaurant Daniel for one year, oh and you get two Rolls Royce Phantoms…outrageous, right?! We couldn’t believe our ears. Oh, and if you don’t like the look of your multi-million dollar 10,000 square foot penthouse, you’ll also be given $2 million in construction credit for any renovations. Did we forget to mention that the building comes with a long list of amenities? The Atelier boasts a pool, a 12,000 square foot gym, basketball and tennis courts, golf driving range, yoga studio, screening room, rooftop lounge with landscaped terrace, and indoor and outdoor play areas for children. Oh, and during the winter there’s a 3,000 square foot ice skating rink on the rooftop…too cool (get it?)!
