While no buyer has come into the picture in the several months since this has been listed, we have no doubt that it will sell. Where there is a view and tons of space, there is a way.
1. Asking price is $118.5M.
That is right. While there are other units on the market that come close the most expensive apartment in New York City is listed for $118.5 million. If it sells, this apartment will break the record of highest sale price in NYC.
2. It combines three units.
This is interesting because these three apartments are owned by two different people. The units make up the top two floors of a 40-story tower.
3. It spans 17,828 square feet.
The combined interior square footage of all three apartments is 15,434 square feet. However, the sale includes a total of 2,193 square feet of terraces.
4. The listing broker is a television star.
Ryan Serhant, the listing broker, is one of the three stars of Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing New York. I wonder how the other two guys feel about this listing?
5. It has views of EVERYTHING.
The view of Jersey is certainly not the most impressive view from the apartment combo. Depending on where you are standing in the sprawling tower-enclosed estate, you have views of the Statue of Liberty, Freedom Tower, the Empire State Building, and of course, the Hudson River.
6. It is not even livable…yet.
Serhant has said that the listing still needs tens of millions of dollars to combine, gut, and renovate it into one cohesive/livable unit.
7. It is – apparently – a bargain.
At $7,677/sq ft, Serhant claims that this is a bargain since some other new construction condos at asking upwards of $9,000/sq ft. According to him, the sell is in the views and size of the units.
8. It is in a hotel.
The mega-unit is in the Ritz-Carlton Hotel of Battery Park City. The massive building has 311 hotel rooms on lower floors under the 114 condominium units.
Whoever the lucky buyer of this ultra-expensive unit is, they will also enjoy building perks such as a full-time doorman, concierge service, an elevator attendant, central air conditioning, a full-service garage, a health club, a garden, a pool, a roof deck, a business center, a children’s playroom, valet parking and a private lounge.
