Update, 12/19/17: The Real Deal reports that the sale of these three properties has now closed—and while it’s not going to best One57’s record for the priciest NYC apartment ever sold, it came pretty damn close. The three units were sold to one buyer—432 Park Joy LLC—as a combo, and closed for precisely $91,125,498. (That does put it at the top of the list for NYC apartments that sold in 2017.)
The buyer, according to TRD, is a Chinese investor, though little else is known about them at this point.
Could 432 Park Avenue be getting a $120 million mega-apartment? Mansion Global reports that three of the supertall’s sky-high penthouses went into contract on the same day, leading to speculation that the buyer(s) of those condos—we won’t know who they are until the sales close, of course—could have combo unit aspirations in mind.
The three apartments are all half-floor units, two of which are on the 92nd floor, and one above that. Douglas Elliman’s Richard Steinberg was the broker for all three units. If combined, the apartments would have a whopping 12,000 square feet of space; each unit is a three-bedroom, with 3.5 bathrooms and the stunning views afforded to those who live above literally every other person in New York City.
One of the units was previously a model apartment with interiors by Kelly Behun, who customized every inch of the space—it was kitted out with vintage furniture, a mod Venetian plaster fireplace mantle, and more.
As Mansion Global notes, buyers have combined units—which are delivered essentially as white boxes, albeit with luxe touches like natural oak cabinets in the kitchen, and marble-covered bathrooms—in the past. Two 82nd-floor units were previously combined into one full-floor unit, with the buyer paying $62 million for both.
There are still plenty of units up for grabs at the Rafael Viñoly-designed skyscraper, too—including a crowning penthouse on the 95th floor, which is going for a cool $82 million.
