In the three years since the Puck Penthouses officially hit the market, only three of those posh apartments have sold, while others have left the market to try their luck as rentals.
Another of those units hit the rental market the week of July 7: Penthouse II, which was one of the first apartments that hit the market back in 2014. The last time it was on the market, it was going for $35.1 million; as a rental, it was asking $70,000/month. (Yes, it’s a high price, but it does come fully furnished.)
But even at the price, the posh penthouse didn’t struggle to find a renter. Jeffrey Fields of Rutenberg confirms that the penthouse has been rented, though he was unable to comment on exactly what price the lease is for and who’s renting the uber-luxe joint.
This particular unit has some of the same architectural details as the other Puck Penthouses, including brick-covered barrel-vaulted ceilings, cast iron columns, and arched windows; it also has a huge terrace that overlooks Houston Street, high-end finishes (marble counters, terrazzo finishes, you get the idea), and a smart home system.
As for the nitty-gritty stuff, the apartment has three bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms (the master suite, of course, has its own his-and-hers bathrooms with separate dressing rooms); it covers 5,222 square feet, and is very, very posh.
