Another day, another story about how sales at the city's super-tall residential skyscrapers are shattering all kinds of records and it's basically because of foreign buyers. Besides 432 Park and 56 Leonard, which are attracting the usual suspects?Middle Eastern royalty, Chinese tycoons, and Russian billionaires?there are some details about Extell's long-awaited One57, which will open in December. An 87th-floor unit is asking $67,000,000 or almost $11,000/square foot. A few floors down, the price is "only $55 million." "I didn't really say, only $55 million?" Extell chief Gary Barnett told a reporter. "It's all relative." Welcome to the new normal, everybody. [NYT]
