There's a new most expensive apartment in New York City. At least, there's about to be. The Zeckendorf-developed, Robert A.M. Stern-designed tower that's on the rise at 520 Park Avenue will boast a penthouse that will ask a mind-boggling $130,000,000. At the intersection of 60th Street, the limestone tower's topper will be a triplex totaling 12,394 square feet. It will have a 1,257-square-foot terrace, Central Park views. Arthur Zeckendorf told Bloomberg about the bonkers pricetag in an interview today, adding that sales will begin early next year, with completion slated for 2017. (520 Park's 31 apartments were originally set to hit the market this fall.)
Tear your eyeballs away from that ridiculous asking price for a moment: the rest of the building is made up of 23 full-floor units of about 4,600 square feet, which will start at $16.2 million. Seven almost-10,000-foot-duplexes will start at $67 million.
Please note that the duplexes' planned listing price puts them squarely in the list of the 25 most expensive apartments for sale in the city right now. The penthouse, when it lists, will unseat the current record-holder: a trio of uncombined penthouse apartments at Battery Park City's Ritz-Carlton residences, which wants a mere $118.5M.
