Two penthouses at 35 Hudson Yards—the tallest tower in the megaproject—have hit the market, asking $59 million each. If either unit sells for the full price, it would become one of the most expensive condos sold below 42nd Street, the Wall Street Journal reports. (Jeff Bezos most recently set that record when he bought three units in Nomad for $80 miilion).
Both penthouses have 14-foot ceilings and are near the top of the 92-story tower. One of them, the 10,171-square-foot lower unit, has six bedrooms, a 454-square-foot terrace, and views to the Midtown skyline. The other one, the 9,886-square-foot upper unit, has seven bedrooms, a 445-square-foot terrace, and views to Downtown Manhattan.
As we previously reported, the supertall building, designed by David Childs of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, will also have office space and a hotel operated by Equinox.
How will the building’s units differ from the thousand others in NYC’s luxury condo glut? AD100 designer Tony Ingrao, in charge of the building’s interiors, told WSJ that the apartment’s finishes—with eucalyptus cabinetry and wide plank french oak floors—are part of “[delivering] a product that was even better than anything else.”
Asked about Ross’s relationship with President Trump and how that could impact sales at the development, Sherry Tobak, senior vice president of Related Sales, told WSJ that she wasn’t concerned about it.
