In the building known for the city’s most expensive residential sale ever (a dizzying duplex on the 89th and 90th floors of the iconic skyscraper at 157 West 57th Street whose $100 million sale closed in 2014), big-ticket buys hardly turn heads. But that same year, the headline-grabbing supertall saw its third most expensive unit change hands when Canadian investor and Ferrari collector Lawrence Stroll dropped $55.6 million on a 6,240-square-foot 85th-floor home in the building’s tower. Now he’s put the full-floor pad back on the market for an even more noteworthy $70 million. According to the listing, the apartment had a complete renovation even in its short lifetime–and clearly, Stroll, worth an estimated $2.4 billion spared no expense, including woven suede walls, a sculptural wall by artist Peter Lane, and a double-sided marble fireplace.
A 29-foot private elevator landing lined with textured stone leads to an entrance hall upholstered in woven suede, all with that “double plunging view” down over Central Park.
A dramatic great room is framed by walls of windows.
A bar and an open dining room are divided by a double-sided fireplace. One wall is comprised of a three-toned ceramic sculpture by the artist Peter Lane.
The kitchen has all the trimmings, of course (including a hidden ceiling TV), but it’s the views that take the cake.
Down a long corridor in the south wing you’ll find a four-room master suite that spans 1,500 square feet floating above Central Park with the universe stretching out in every direction. You’ll also find a fireplace, two dressings rooms and a double bath with a spa shower and a steam room.
Two more bedrooms are here as well, all en-suite. A corner media room/library has another fireplace and built-in bookshelves–and we haven’t even gotten to the office yet (that’s next door, with downtown views). Also tucked into the bedroom wing is a laundry room.
The apartment is, of course, fully automated with a Vantage AV system to control lights, music, shades and security. Should the new residents of this Billionaire’s Row anchor find themselves in need of a pool, a state-of-the-art fitness center or parking, they’ll find it among the amenities offered here.
