A penthouse at Central Park Tower closed for $115 million, becoming New York City’s fourth priciest apartment sale on record. Taking up the 107th and 108th floors of the tallest tower in the Western Hemisphere, the duplex condo on Billionaires’ Row was first listed for $175 million last March and entered contract early this year.

Fredrik Eklund, of the Eklund-Gomes team at Douglas Elliman, announced the closing on Instagram on Friday.

“The penthouse at Central Park Tower just SOLD & CLOSED at $115,000,000 and marks the BIGGEST DEAL IN NEW YORK since 2021!” Eklund wrote. “Incredible proud to have witnessed @nyc_condo on the team broker this mega-deal with our assistance. It’s a big day for all of us at Eklund | Gomes with our third deal over $100M in less than two years.”

As previously reported by the Wall Street Journal, Eklund, along with partners Kent Wu and John Gomes, brought the buyer. Gomes told the Journal the purchaser is international but did not disclose a name.

According to CityRealty, the $100 million-plus deal marks just the sixth nine-figure deal on record and the fourth-priciest apartment sale on record for the city. 

The most recent homes to sell for over $100 million include billionaire Daniel Och’s penthouse at 220 Central Park South for $188 million, which closed last June, and a pair of co-ops at 4 East 66th Street that closed together for $101 million in 2022. Ken Griffin’s $238 million purchase at 220 Central Park South in 2019 remains the priciest deal.

The glass-wrapped Central Park Tower penthouse measures over 12,500 square feet and has seven bedrooms, eight full baths, two half-baths, and a private elevator. The grand salon has 27-foot ceilings, chevron-patterned hardwood floors, and terrace access and a kitchen features all high-end professional appliances. The apartment has a family room, conservatory, library, office, media room with another terrace, a guest suite, playroom, and a staff room.

Developed by Extell and designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, the 1,550-foot-tall Central Park Tower has a private amenity club with 50,000 square feet of perks across three floors.
