The octagon-shaped penthouse with wraparound panoramic views of the city and three floors situated in midtown Manhattan is on the market for $100 Million. The penthouse features six bedrooms, nine bathrooms as well as a wine room that can hold up to 1,000 bottles.
The penthouse was originally purchased for 4.5 million back in 1993 but has been extensively renovated since then. Owned by Steven Klar a real estate developer in Long Island, Klar said that he had spent probably more than he bought it for on the renos.
Klar bought the building during the downturn in the market which had forced the lenders to take the building away from the developer. Klar bought the penthouse when his company, Klar Organization, had been brought in to sell off the unsold apartments.
The apartment boasts 8,000 square feet as well as its own private elevator. It is situated on West 56th Street and has a view of almost every one of the city’s bridges. It has a whopping 135 windows.
The penthouse with three floors occupies the 73rd-75th floors of the building. According to the broker, Raphael De Niro with Prudential Douglas Elliman, the terraces allow for the best in residential city space. Raphael is the son of the actor Robert De Niro.
The building, CitySpire, originally was subject to some controversy because it was built higher than was allowed by the city. Later however the developer reached a settlement with the city.
The asking price of the penthouse is apparently the highest of any apartment on the market in the city right now and makes Kitsilano real estate look extremely affordable by comparison. Its closest competitor is the six bedroom penthouse currently under development near by at One57 will be going for 90 million.
