A buyer, whose identity is under wraps, has set a new record of the most expensive single-family home purchase in New York City. The duplex penthouse on the 89th and 90th floor of the One57 tower on has closed for $100,471,452 to be precise.
The high-price residence on West 57th Street spans over 10,923-square-foot and offers priceless views of the Central Park. Claimed to be the first to break ground on “Billionaires Row”, One57 upon completion in 2014, stands at 1,005 feet. Designed by Pritzker Prize-winning French architect Christian de Portzamparc, One 57 tower boasts of the interiors done by New York-based designer Thomas Juul-Hansen.
Forbes reports that this sale beats the previous record of the most expensive home sold in New York City. In 2012, Ekaterina Rybolovleva, daughter of Russian fertilizer tycoon Dimitry Rybolovlev, paid $88 million for the 15 Central Park West penthouse that belonged to former Citigroup chairman Sanford Weill.
