Two years after Robert A.M. Stern’s faux-limestone column at 30 Park Place first launched sales, it’s getting ready to welcome its first residents. Silverstein Properties, the developer behind the 926-foot-tall building, announced today that closings have begun on the 157 apartments that sit atop the structure, and the (likely very wealthy) people who bought those fancy apartments can start moving in.
Per a press release, more than 75 percent of those homes have now sold, and the so-called Penthouse Residences— "a collection of eleven half- and full-floor homes at the top of the building"—is now set to launch sales. The apartments themselves only take up the upper floors of the building; the first 24 floors are devoted to a new Four Seasons Hotel, which is finally taking reservations (it was originally supposed to open last month).
Even though closings have begun, city records show only a couple of those—a three-bedroom apartment on the 43rd floor, for instance, closed for $6.36 million. But some of the most impressive real estate in the building—a 78th-floor duplex with a double-height loggia, for example—is still up for grabs.
