It was only three months ago when wealthy Hong Kong banker Gongwen Dong dropped $50 million on a penthouse at 15 Central Park West but having one multimillion dollar Manhattan apartment apparently wasn’t enough.
Owing to a partnership between Macklowe and designer Kelly Behun, plebes are getting a glimpse into the 1,224-foot-high penthouse of 432 Park Avenue. On top of that, everything in the apartment, from furnishings to art, is for sale.
In a case of rich guy infighting, billionaire Juan Beckmann Vidal is suing Macklowe over a "catastrophic water flood" that wrecked an apartment he planned on purchasing within Macklowe’s luxe 432 Park skyscraper.
This most recent closing narrowly beat out the $59 million sale of another full-floor apartment at the Macklowe and CIM Group-developed building. At the time that it closed, it was the priciest recorded sale in the building.
The 8,255-square-foot penthouse has just closed for a whopping $87.7 million, a few million shy of its $95 million asking price, but enough to make it the new highest recorded sale in the luxury tower.
