A Rich (and Potentially Famous) Buyer Snags the Penthouse at 250 West for $29.5 Million
After yoyo-ing on and off the market over the last two years, the penthouse at 250 West has finally found a buyer. City records filed this afternoon reveal that the unit traded hands for $29.5 million, way down from its original $42 million asking price back in 2013. The buyer was shielded under an LLC, but it was previously reported that the penthouse was being marketed to high-profile individuals, celebs amongst them, given its private entrance separate from the door used by the rest of the residents. Leonardo DiCaprio was rumored to be one of the names to have checked out the space—though he eventually purchased a pad at the Delos. With that in mind, we wonder who nabbed this Tribeca deal.
The massive 5,718-square-foot home offers sweeping, protected Hudson River views with 175 feet of frontage facing west, south and north. The fully-irrigated terrace is a 4,298 square foot expanse with a deck and six-person Jacuzzi. And to go with its 1,438-square-foot private entrance is an equally private elevator. Although the interiors are for the most part simple, you definitely can’t argue with the views.
