The sale holds the record for the most expensive home ever sold in New York City

The mystery surrounding who was responsible for dropping $100.5 million on a One57 penthouse back in 2014 has been solved and it was none other than mega-wealthy founder and CEO of Dell Technologies, Michael Dell, reports the Wall Street Journal.

The sale, which was first announced in May 2012 but didn’t actually close until December 2014, holds the record for the most expensive home ever sold in New York City.

Per the WSJ, Dell has tapped Miró Rivera Architects to helm a renovation of the 10,923-square-foot duplex that includes six bedrooms and six bathrooms, spread across the 89th and 90th floors of the Extell-developed supertall.

Dell’s exorbitant penthouse likely won’t hold the record for priciest condo sold in NYC for much longer: A four-floor penthouse at Vornado Realty Trust’s 220 Central Park South is reportedly in contract and expected to close for more than $200 million, making it the new record holder by a long shot.
