Manhattan’s long been one of the world’s most expensive bits of real estate, but the $100 million tag on a penthouse apartment has even jaded New Yorkers’ jaws dropping. The apartment, entered on the 72nd floor of the City Spire skyscraper on West 56th Street, is described by brokers Prudential Douglas Elliman as “the crown jewel” in the condominium.
It has 360 degree views and is the highest terraced apartment in the city, with an interior decorated in a mixture of Roman and Versailles palace themes. The master suite is on the 75th floor.
The octagon-shaped penthouse has 8,000-square-feet of living space. It has its own elevator and wraparound terraces on three floors and it’s possible to see all of the city’s bridges from its 135 windows.
The sale, being brokered by Raphael De Niro, son of the actor Robert De Niro, would set a new record, which is currently reported at $88 million for another penthouse with views over Central Park.
