Those who found themselves gobsmacked when news broke that the Sony building’s penthouse would be priced at $150 million, look out, here’s another jaw-dropping fact headed your way. TRD has reported that not only will the unit be the priciest in history if sold, but when complete, it will also hold the title of the city’s largest.
At 21,504 square feet, the triplex trumps the competition; TRD reports that the two runners-up include a 16,270-square-foot pad at 3 East 95th Street, which sold in 2006 for $21.9 million, and a 13,063-square-foot condo at The Plaza Hotel, which sold in 2007 for just over $50 million. The city’s most expensive sale recorded thus far—the $100 million penthouse at One57—measures a comparatively mere 10,923 square feet. The penthouse at the Phillip Johnson-designed building will boast eight bedrooms, eight full bathrooms, 10 powder rooms, a billiard room, two media rooms, a library/bar, wine room, gym and spa.
