Ridiculous $25M condo is the East Village's most expensive apartment

This isn’t the first time it’s tried getting that much money

There’s a lot that you can do with $25 million. In some places across the United States, that much money can get you hundreds of acres of land, or a huge mansion-like home. Heck, you can buy Katafanga Island in Fiji for $25 million. But one lucky millionaire who has that much cash to spend could trade all of that for this 6,150-square-foot East Village apartment.

While it isn’t pricey enough to grace the list of the most expensive homes for sale in New York City, this full-floor condo at 210 East 5th Street is steep enough to claim the title of the East Village’s most expensive listing—possibly ever, according to EV Grieve (h/t New York Post). This isn’t even the first time the place has been listed for that much—back in 2012, it was asking the same amount, but apparently couldn’t find a buyer. (Second time’s the charm?)

The sprawling loft is located is currently owned by Canadian filmmaker and photographer Gregory Colbert, who purchased the place for $6 million back in 2004. It has four bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms, though much of that is spread out over a somewhat unfinished sort of space. (It needs a lot of work, is what we’re saying.)

Other features: Tons of exposed brick walls; 32-foot arched ceilings; a lengthy loggia; a surprisingly modern eat-in kitchen; a solarium; a library; a media room/music studio; and an 800-square-foot private terrace.

So yes—it’s a lot, and rightfully so, considering the outlandish asking price. Whether or not it actually garners the full ask, however, remains to be seen.
