Six years ago, Saudi Prince Nawaf bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud listed his lavish Heritage at Trump Place triplex for a staggering $75 million. Three years ago, it got a price chop to $48.5 million, and The Real Deal now reports that it’s closed for an even further discounted $36 million. Since the 10,500-square-foot home listed long before the reign of Trump, we’re guessing it’s not the building’s namesake that caused it trouble on the market. Perhaps having three bullet-proof panic rooms isn’t on everyone’s real estate wishlist?
The residence is the combination of six separate units spread throughout the fifth, sixth, and seventh floors of the 31-story building. In addition to the aforementioned safe spaces, it boasts tricked-out amenities such as a sushi island bar, built-in saltwater aquariums, personal fitness center, billiards room, hair salon, ventilated cigar room, and a six-person jacuzzi.
The 60-foot living room is perhaps the crowning jewel of the home, with Hudson River views, a 60-foot single piece plush carpet, floating fireplace, and 103-inch television.
As 6sqft previously described:
The home is outfitted with large slabs of Calacatta marble and other high-end stones, glossy Venetian plaster walls and ceilings, and ebony Makassar doors and walls. Much of the furniture is custom-designed, and the residence is fully automated with smart-home features, which connect to the three panic rooms. It may be sold furnished.
The Real Deal reminds us that Saudi royalty has been in the headlines lately for some less-than-positive stories. Several members were recently investigated in an anti-corruption campaign, including Prince Alwaleed bin Talal who is a minority owner of the Plaza. Though Prince Nawaf bin Sultan bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud hasn’t been mentioned as part of the investigation, perhaps the scandal influenced his decision to sell at a loss. The buyer purchased the unit using an anonymous LLC.
