$59M penthouse at High Line-hugging the Getty smashes downtown sales record

New, 23 comments

The triplex is combination of the two-story penthouse and the full-floor condo below that


A three-story condo atop the Peter Marino-designed building, The Getty, has sold for $59 million, Forbes reports. That makes it the priciest downtown purchase in city history, surpassing the record held by the Walker Tower penthouse, which sold for $51 million back in 2014.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the buyer is Texas-based private equity exec Robert F. Smith. The High Line-adjacent Getty has never officially launched sales, but this purchase is reportedly a combination of the building’s two-story penthouse, and another unit below that, according to Forbes.

This combo pad now has 10,000 square feet of space, and in it there are six bedrooms (including a full-floor master suite on the 11th floor), seven bathrooms, 22-foot-high floor-to-ceiling windows in one of the penthouse’s two living rooms, and 2,700 square feet of outdoor space, which comes equipped with a swimming pool.

The 12-story condo building, which is located at at the corner of West 24th Street and Tenth Avenue, was developed by the Victor Group and Michael Shvo. Aside from the triplex, the building just has five other apartments, with prices reportedly starting at $16 million. The Modlin Group and Douglas Elliman are jointly handling sales and marketing at the development.
