Central Park Tower, the world’s tallest residential building, has officially unveiled New York City’s most elevated (literally) private club on the condominium tower’s 100th floor. Perched more than 1,000 feet above Billionaires’ Row, the high-flying portion of the building’s Central Park Club offers residents of the building’s 179 condominiums a suite of private dining and entertaining spaces with incomparable views. Extell Development Company’s 1,500-plus-foot-tall tower is also home to the Nordstrom flagship retail store located at its base.

On the 12th floor of the iconic copper-topped Hampshire House co-op at 150 Central Park South, this 2,640-square-foot residence has a parkside seat and the views to match. Asking $5,995,000, the three-bedroom (or two bedrooms and a dreamy den) classic seven is a combination of two units for an unusually spacious layout, rooms to spare, and an alternate floor plan in case you need ideas on what to do with all of them. Pre-war bones, a private south-facing balcony, and warm-toned herringbone floors tie it all together.

For $150,000,000, a luxury apartment situated 1,300 feet above ground can be yours. As first reported by Bloomberg, the available duplex is located on the 127th and 128th floors of Central Park Tower, the tallest residential building in the world. According to the listing, the eight-bedroom “trophy home” is the highest duplex in the skyscraper, which stands more than 1,500 feet tall over Central Park.

As was first reported by the Wall Street Journal in June, a buyer shelled out $157,500,000 for two units at 220 Central Park South. Property records showed the $82.5 million purchase of the 60th-floor unit and the $75 million purchase of the 61st-floor unit, both made using an LLC. But CNBC has now revealed that the buyer is billionaire Joe Tsai, Alibaba co-founder and owner of the Brooklyn Nets. The sale is the second biggest in New York City history and the third-largest ever in the U.S. The number-one spot occurred at the same Billionaires’ Row tower, with billionaire Ken Griffin’s $238 million purchase in early 2019.

The Osborne co-op was built on the northwest corner of 57th Street and 7th Avenue in 1885 as one of NYC’s first grand apartment buildings. Just four years later, Carnegie Hall would rise across the street, cementing its stature among the city’s elite addresses. A two-bedroom apartment in the building has hit the market for $3,500,000, and just by looking at its opulence, one feels transported back to the 19th century. From the imposing coffered ceilings and stately columns to the decadent fabrics and gilded decor, the home offers an old-world sophistication not often found anymore.

Two new impressive units just hit the market at New York City’s most slender supertall. At 111 West 57th Street, a three-level, four-bedroom penthouse with over 7,000 square feet of interior space and an additional 1,367 square feet in private outdoor space with picture-perfect views over Central Park has hit the market for $66 million. And a duplex with three bedrooms and unobstructed park views is now asking $39.5 million. The latest multi-million dollar listings at the Billionaires’ Row tower come after two $30 million units sold earlier this summer during the coronavirus shut down, giving a boost to the city’s nearly stagnant luxury market.
