Ask Curbed: How Much for the Roof?

How to put a price on an unobstructed view of cassiopeia? Or on a place to pen your pigeons? A Curbed reader writes,

I'm the president of a coop in a downtown neighborhood (prime real estate--think West Village, Chelsea, Soho, Tribeca). We are planning to sell part of the undeveloped roof to the owners of the penthouse apt. [No build-up. -ed.] Any ideas on what the pricing should look like? I know that I will have to get an appraisal done.
Appraisal? Nah, we figure a bunch of anonymous comments should do. Let 'er rip. BONUS: Some commenters tried to get to the bottom of this issue in a PriceSpotter earlier this month.
