When a three-bedroom condo in Manhattan hits the market for $2 million, it’s not much of a shocker. Yet when said apartment on Roosevelt Island lists for that price, it’s kind of a big deal. Such is the case for this 1,433-square-foot abode within Riverwalk 415 Main Street, which recently hit the market, making it the island’s most expensive listing ever, reports Bloomberg.

So what exactly do you get when you purchase the priciest apartment found on Roosevelt Island? To be quite honest, nothing that you can’t buy on the rest of Manhattan, though real estate broker Ben Garama, who represents the listing, told Bloomberg that the apartment is “a bargain for homebuyers hunting for more space and who might consider the island over the more traditional alternatives of Queens and Brooklyn.”

Along with three bedrooms, there is a living room outlined with floor-to-ceiling windows, an open chef’s kitchen with plenty of counter and cabinet space as well as stainless steel appliances, and three marble-clad bathrooms.

Judging from the floorplan, storage space isn’t in short supply here, with at least eight (!) closets. and though there isn’t any private outdoor space, part of the building’s amenity package includes access to the rooftop terrace where there are views of the East River and the Manhattan skyline.

Given the the median price of the apartments sold on Roosevelt Island in the first quarter of the year was just $786,306, it’ll be interesting to see if the apartment manages to fetch it’s full asking price. The current record is held by another unit within Riverwalk that sold last May $1.75 million.
