Here’s a rare chance to glimpse inside the secretive interiors of 220 Central Park South, which have previously been kept completely private by developer Vornado Realty Trust (h/t NYP). This is the first rental listing to open up in one of New York’s most coveted addresses, where billionaire Ken Griffin closed on a penthouse for just shy of $240 million, setting the record for the most expensive home ever sold in the United States. For $59,000 a month, the 3,114-square-foot home comes with some of the best views in town–even from the bathroom!
The corner unit is on the 40th floor and boasts unobstructed northern, eastern, and southern views of Central Park, Midtown, and beyond. The Robert A.M. Stern-designed interiors draw on classic pre-war details, with herringbone floors, custom moldings, and millwork.
A hallway leads into a 36-foot-long living and dining room where oversized northern and eastern exposures overlook Central Park.
Adjacent, the eat-in kitchen features wood paneling, glass and chrome cabinetry, a white marble center-island, and marble countertops.
There are three bedrooms, each with their own en-suite bathroom. In the master suite, custom chrome and glass doors open onto a lavish bath clad in black-and-white marble, with heated floors and a steam shower. The unit also has a laundry room and powder room and generous closet space throughout.
Building amenities include an 82-foot saltwater pool, a fitness center, a squash court, a library, a screening room, and outdoor terraces.
In addition to Griffin, the New York Post reports that other confirmed buyers include Albert Behler, chairman and chief executive of real estate investment trust Paramount Group, who bought a 35th-floor unit for $33.5 million, and Brazilian billionaire Renata de Camargo Nascimento, who paid $30.19 million for an apartment on the 33rd floor. Musician Sting and his wife Trudie have also been looking at a triplex in the building.
