It would, in fact, be accurate to call this a flip: The apartment, Penthouse F, sold at the end of February for precisely $14,258,554; now, just five months later, it’s back on the market with new staging, a new broker (Fredrik Eklund and John Gomes of Douglas Elliman), and a new, higher price. The seller (hidden behind an LLC) is seeking $17.3 million for the apartment.
While this isn’t one of the building’s über-luxurious penthouses—it doesn’t come with its own private pool, for example—it’s plenty nice. It has three bedrooms, all of which have their own en-suite bathrooms; an enormous great room with automated privacy blinds on its floor-to-ceiling windows; and “custom enhancements” like “black steel wrapping around the vertical beams” in the great room, and “polished concrete flooring in the glass atrium.” The private terrace is expansive, and comes with its own outdoor kitchen setup.
And of course, the building’s over-the-top amenities—a Hamam, a temperature-controlled wine cellar, private parking, a 5,000-square-foot roof deck, and the like—are all part of the package, too.
