As 24 of the 29 units in 135 East 79th Street sold out based on the floorplans before the building was even constructed, it's no surprise that, with closings underway, there is currently only one unit left unclaimed (though two more penthouses have yet to be listed). The 4,476-square-foot 17th-floor penthouse is still on the market for $20.35 million, the upshot of which is that the listing now comes with actual photos instead of the same handful of renderings that we've seen with all the other ones.
The Brodsky Organization-developed building is meant to be an homage to the classy Upper East Side buildings of old—some units, such as the still-available penthouse no. 17E even come with a maid's room. The most recent closing, also the building's highest closing price so far, was the other 17th-floor penthouse, for which financier Michael Gross (no relation) paid $22.45 million.
