According to HauteLiving, the highest penthouse in NYC is no longer on the market thanks to a Saudi Arabian billionaire-Fawaz Alhokair. The 8,255 square foot condo has 6bd/7bathrooms and a wood burning fireplace. $95 million was the reported price. If and when this deal closes, it will be the 2nd most expensive residential apartment sold in Manhattan behind the purchase of two floors atop the poster child for Billionaire’s Row: One57.
Mr. Alhokair’s company operates more than 2100 stores in fashion including having licenses for Zara, Banana Republic and Gap.
432 Park avenue is currently the tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere. Prices start at $17mm up to $81mm for another penthouse. The building will have 125 units spread over 96 floors.
