When it comes to penthouses, Billionaires’ Row is certainly in a league of its own. And king amongst this incredibly desirable slice of New York City is the penthouse that crowns Central Park Tower – the world’s tallest residential building, completed earlier this year – which can now be yours for just US$250 million (US$370 million).

Should the Central Park Tower penthouse be sold for its listed price, or even at a US$10 million discount, it’ll earn a place in history as the most expensive US home sale (as of 2022), beating out the likes of hedge fund manager Ken Griffin’s US$238 million (AU$355 million apartment and the penthouse billionaire Dan Och offloaded to Alibaba co-founder Joseph Tsai for US$188 million (AU$280 million); both located at Vornado Realty Trust’s 220 Central Park South.

It’ll also be a relative bargain considering US$15,000 (AU$22,400) per square foot is roughly comparable to what buyers have paid over at the aforementioned 220 Central Park South, according to developer Gary Barnett, while being considerably less than the marketed US$20,000 (AU$30,000) per-square-foot price point of the nearby 432 Park Avenue penthouse currently owned by Saudi magnate Al Hokair.

“There’s a bunch of artwork going for $100 million and even $200 million,” said Gary Barnett of Extell Development Company.

“When you compare that to 17,000 feet of steel and brick and glass at the top of the world — this seems like a relative bargain.”

“The nine-figure club is a special club, and that club is also now looking to own nine-figure real estate,” explained listing agent Ryan Serhant of Serhant.

“It’s a new paradigm now. The uber-wealthy are looking for places to diversify assets, and real estate has become one of the most popular and sought after mega-assets. The levels have exploded.”

This hot ticket triplex spanning from the 129th through to the 131st floor of Central Park Tower is perched 1,550 feet above ground. Beyond its seven bedrooms, elite finishes, ceiling heights of up to 30 feet, and winding sculptural staircase connecting all three floors, not much else is publicly known about this penthouse.

According to The Wall Street Journal, there’s also a private 1,400-squae-foot terrace with unrivalled views of the city from Central Park to the Hudson and East rivers, plus a private ballroom slash entertainment space on the uppermost floor. Sadly, images of all the above have yet to surface online.

Shared amenities within Central Park Tower include the following:

  • Communal garden + outdoor deck
  • Communal lounge area
  • Cinema
  • Outdoor pool
  • Private club designed by Lauren Rottet of Rottet Studio on the 100th floor

Said private club features a restaurant where you can enjoy a menu curated by Michelin-starred chefs Laurent Tourondel, Gabriel Kreuther, & Alfred Portale; the obligatory bar; a cigar and cognac lounge; as well as a sprawling ballroom.

“You don’t have to renovate for four years to create your dream home. It’s been built for you.”

Ryan Serhant

If the Central Park Tower penthouse is just a tad outside your budget, fear not. There’s always an 8,000-square-foot / four-bedroom unit on the 53rd floor, which is priced at a considerably more reasonable US$50.02 million (AU$74.74 million).
