It’s been three years since hedge funder Steven Cohen’s duplex atop One Beacon Court first appeared on the market, with the at-the-time outlandish asking price of $115 million. (Now, nine-figure homes are all too common in New York City, making that number seem … well, it’s still outlandish, but it would at least have company nowadays.)
But several price chops later, the enormous apartment—which, at one point, got a rather sterile renovation by modernist architect Charles Gwathmey—hasn’t budged. And unsurprisingly, it recently took another hit, lowering its ask from $72 million to $67.5 million. Considering that’s a nearly $50 million reduction from its original price, we’re ready to induct this one into the oh-so-prestigious Pricechopper Hall of Fame. (Welcome to the club!)
By now, astute Curbed readers know the details on this place: it covers more than 9,000 square feet, it has five bedrooms, it’s covered in stainless steel, yada yada yada. At this point, it’s not really a question of if this will get chopped again, but when (though who knows—if the oddly-shaped UFO apartment in Nolita’s Police Building can sell, anything is possible).
