A quintuplex penthouse at 172 Madison Avenue in Midtown, deemed Le Penthouse, has just listed for $98 million.

The 19,815-square-foot property has five stories, 11 bedrooms, 14 bathrooms, several fireplaces, a private roof deck with a pool and jacuzzi, and more than 3,500 square feet of overall outdoor terrace space. The over-the-top unit also boasts 18- to 32-foot-high ceilings and “nearly anything that money can buy and the mind can imagine is possible,” the listing says.

“If this is how you love to live, this is your call to action, you will love to create this one of a kind white box into a home,” the brokers add in the listing.

Designed by the late architect Karl Fischer and developed by Tessler, 172 Madison Avenue sits in a once-foreclosed site. Some of the building’s units first hit the market in 2015. The condo has 31 stories, 72 apartments, and amenities including a pet spa, a lounge, and a steam room.

The condo is located at 172 Madison Avenue, between 33rd and 34th Streets—a roughly six-minute walk from famed restaurant Zuma, an eight-minute walk to Madison Square Park, and 11 minutes away from Grand Central. Common charges will be $30,461/month and taxes $51,269/month. Raphael Sitruk and Efraim Tessler of Keller Williams NYC have the listing.
