Another sun-soaked pad at One57 has hit the market, and unlike the sweet (and heavily discounted) digs downstairs on the 79th floor, this 85th-floor apartment is currently scandal-free.
Canadian fashion-investing billionaire Lawrence Stroll—also known for his collection of vintage Ferarris and being F1 driver Lance Stroll’s father—is parting ways with his full-floor abode, and has listed the place for a whopping $70 million, according to The Real Deal.
Stroll, who bought the 85th-floor unit way back in 2014, right after Extell launched sales in the building, originally paid $55.6 million for the 6,240-sqaure-foot three-bedroom pad, and then renovated the place to his exceedingly fashionable specifications. The landing, for example, is lined with “textured stone,” while the entrance hall is “upholstered in woven suede,” the listing reads.
The south wall of the Great Room, meanwhile, is “wrapped with a three tone sculpted ceramic wall by the artist Peter Lane.”
Other non-wall features in the “extravagant, no expense spared home” include sweeping Central Park views, the aforementioned Great Room with wall-to-wall windows, three “sumptuous seating areas,” an open dining room, and a bar with a refrigerator.
There’s an eat-in chef’s kitchen, of course (with drop-down ceiling TV), as well as a library, a “handsome” office, two regular bedrooms (with en-suite baths), and a palatial master suite, which includes a spa shower and steam room, a sitting area with a fireplace, and not one but two walk-in closets. Nikki Field at Sotheby’s has the listing.
But as TRD points out, One57 isn’t quite what it used to be: on the one hand, sales in the legendarily luxe building have slowed in recent years. At the same time, Extell has even flashier projects under way, with their Central Park Tower, at 217 West 57th Street, positioned to potentially overtake One57 “in both height and price.”
