Got A Spare $107 Million? This Penthouse Might Be For You

We get it. We really do. Lately, it seems as though real estate records are being shattered/set every second day while the vast majority of us don’t ever get a taste of the action. The more pessimistic-minded folks out there will understandably opt to tune out from the conversation at this stage. But for those of you still keeping score, here’s your first look at the impressive One LA penthouse.

Officially listed this past week, in the event it actually sells for its hefty US$75 million / AU$107 million asking price, the two-level crowning glory of the Four Seasons Private Residences Los Angeles will go down in history as the city’s most expensive condominium to date. No small feat considering the high-end geography in which this lavish 12-storey building inhabits.

One LA apparently draws inspiration from the iconic California Case Study Houses – Modernist digs built from the 1940s right through to the 1960s – presenting an airy, open-concept cube on the upper level, complete with sliding glass walls that lead you to the rooftop terrace, 9,788-square foot garden oasis, reflecting pools, and of course, 360-degree panoramic views.

“I wanted to take a Hollywood Hills Richard Neutra house and apply it to a multistory building,” reveals developer Jonathan Genton.

“At the time of inception, there was no project like the Four Seasons Private Residences in Los Angeles, one that would be coveted by global residents and sophisticated domestic buyers.”

“It offers prime real estate in a premier location.”

The remaining features + configuration will be entirely up to the eventual buyer. In line with the bespoke touch associated with so many of these luxe sky dwellings, the number of beds, baths, use of space, and so forth is open to discussion.

Based on the other “average” pads within the Four Seasons Private Residences Los Angeles – which are spread across a comparatively meagre 2,400 square feet; start from US$3.25 million / AU$4.63 million – one can reasonably expect a professional-grade kitchen fitted with Gaggenau appliances, and ensuite bathrooms flaunting the highest-quality finishes with the obligatory soaking tub, double vanity, marble tiling, and so forth.

According to The Wall Street Journal, while the Four Seasons Private Residences Los Angeles doesn’t offer a hotel component despite the branding, what it does offer is hotel-style services ranging from a…

  • private IMAX theatre
  • club lounge
  • in-reasidence dining
  • indoor-outdoor Harley Pasternak-designed fitness & wellness centre
  • private training room
  • tiled saltwater pool w/ zero-edge design & private cabanas w/ ceiling fans
  • high-tech security

… to “paparazzi proof” measures – i.e. private underground garage, private garages within the private garage, direct elevators straight up – given the clientele it’ll more than likely cater towards. Oh yeah. One LA has its own direct elevator access and a private six-car garage.

“Conversely, if you want people to see you, you throw your keys to the valet and pretend you can’t find the door,” Jonathan Genton tells WSJ with a laugh.

Currently, 70% of the Four Seasons Private Residences Los Angeles’ 58 units have already been sold. As for the extraordinary One LA penthouse in question, only time will tell whether anyone has the requisite cajones + coin to pony up for its record price of US$75 million / AU$107 million – check out the renderings below.
