New York City, NY

Featured Building: One57


One57 made headlines when its 10,923 square foot penthouse sold for over $90 million, setting a new record as the most expensive condominium suite. The mystery buyer has had New York City wondering for months now. It is speculated that the buyer purchased the unit as an investment, not as a home.[1]

A known investor, Ackman, confirmed that many of the purchases are made only as investments. He bought the 13,500 square foot "winter garden duplex" among others for $115 million. This duplex unit has a 2,500 square foot glassed in spaced intended to be either a garden or swimming pool.[2]

Standing 1004 feet tall, the building, upon completion, will be the tallest residential building in Manhattan.

One57, originally named Carnegie 57, has a mirage-like curtain wall that contains 210 hotel rooms, with 92 condominiums sitting above. It was designed to appeal to the richest of the rich, housing an exclusive group that increases attraction and interest of New York's finest living. It has appropriately been referred to as Billionaires' Tower.
