The record for the city’s priciest apartment shattered like a fallen chandelier when a buyer agreed to pay more than $90 million for a penthouse duplex at One57 in midtown.
The deal follows two mega sales: $52.5 million for a 740 Park Ave. duplex owned by the widow of late Time Warner chairman Steve Ross, and the $70 million casino owner Steve Wynn paid for a Central Park South condo.
"New York has never seen a week like this," said CORE associate broker Jarrod Guy Randolph.

The exact price for the six-bedroom pad at the unfinished One57 building opposite Carnegie Hall was not disclosed, but the developer told the New York Times it surpassed the $88 million Russian magnate Dmitri Rybolovlev paid at 15 Central Park West.

The buyer was described as “someone people would recognize.”
One57, currently under construction, is a 90-story midtown tower at 157 W. 57th St. It dwarfs Trump World Tower, formerly the highest residential building in New York, by 18 floors.

Central Park stretches out beneath floor-to-ceiling windows of the 10,923-square-foot duplex penthouse on the 89th and 90th floors like a front lawn.
The marble-wrapped master bathrooms in the apartment’s upper floor sport two water closets, one with a bidet, as well as floor-to-ceiling, custom-made walnut cabinetry and flatscreen televisions.

The sales office for the building is by appointment only, and even the pitch is dramatic. After watching a two-minute film about the building set to classical music, potential buyers view architectural models of the site. Then floor plans light up a curved IMAX-sized screen in a library area accessorized with a giant aquarium.

I would ask that if you would like to leave a comment that you think of Local 157 Blogspot as your online meeting hall and that you wouldn’t say anything on this site that you wouldn’t, say at a union meeting. Constructive criticism is welcome, as we all benefit from such advice. Obnoxious comments are not welcome.
