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. If it fetches the asking price, it would become the third most expensive sale in New York City ever.

The massive two-level home measures over 11,500 square feet and boasts panoramic views of Central Park, the Hudson River, and beyond. There are eight bedrooms and nine full bathrooms.

Serving as the centerpiece of the residence is the “Grand Salon,” a living area that stretches 50 feet long and has three walls of windows. Other standouts spaces in the unit include a 30-foot long dining room, corner observatory, a library, and a stunning chef’s kitchen with custom cabinets and top-of-the-line appliances.

The home has two suites, both with en-suite bathrooms and a staff bedroom, on the first level. Up the dramatic staircase (or by private elevator), you’ll find the primary bedroom and its two huge dressing rooms and two en-suite bathrooms. Four additional bedrooms with private bathrooms are also on this level.

Developed by Extell and designed by Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, Central Park Tower has a seven-story Nordstrom flagship store and 179 luxury condos. Current availabilities range from a $6,900,000 two-bedroom to a $65,750,000 five-bedroom.

Central Park Tower residents have access to the highest private club in the world, the Central Park Club. Inside, there is a dining room, private ballroom, bar, full-service kitchen, and a cigar lounge. Additional amenities stretch across floors 14 through 16 and include a large outdoor terrace with a swimming pool and cabanas, a private screening room, a children’s playroom, and a full-floor gym and spa.

Sales launched at Central Park Tower in October 2018 and the tower hit its pinnacle height of 1,550 feet a year later. With residents now officially starting to move in, we got a look at a 43rd-floor model residence priced at $17.5 million last summer and a 66th-floor unit asking $22 million last month.

As mentioned, if this unit closes for its $150 million asking price, it would become the third-biggest residential sale ever in New York City. The number-one spot belongs to billionaire Ken Griffith’s $238 million purchase at 220 Central Park South in early 2019; this is also the biggest residential sale ever in the country. The number-two spot was taken just last month, when billionaire Joe Tsai, Alibaba co-founder and owner of the Brooklyn Nets, closed on a $157,500,000 purchase, also at 220 Central Park South. The current third spot belongs to yet another 220 Central Park South transaction, which was a $99,903,375 penthouse sale in 2002.

A top-floor penthouse at fellow supertall tower 432 Park is currently on the market for $169 million, which could push this listing to the number-four spot.
