The Gucci sisters have been attempting to sell the family’s penthouse atop Midtown’s Olympic Tower for a few years now, but haven’t had much success—not when it was first listed for $45 million, and not for $35 million one year later.
Now, the family is trying an ever-so-slightly different tactic: The penthouse has re-listed with Sotheby’s, once again for $35 million, but it’s also being offered as two individual penthouses, both for $17.5 million. Back in the day, family patriarch Maurizio Gucci turned the two apartments on the building’s 50th and 51st floors into the current mega-unit; it’s currently owned by his daughters, Alessandra and Allegra Gucci.
Let’s take a look at the floorplans to get a sense of those other differences—here’s the floorplan from the combo unit:
And the individual floorplans, first for PH4:
And then for PH5:
As you can see, the layouts are a bit different—an oddly placed living room here, a circular walk-in closet there, and so on. Among the myriad amenities spread out between the two apartments are a wood-burning fireplace, a sauna, two galleries, floor-to-ceiling windows, and more.
The new listings don’t have photos yet, so the floorplans will have to suffice for now—we’ll update if and when those come in.
