At least they’re consistent. The on-again-off-again penthouse listing at The Mark continues to insist on a $60 million asking, nearly seven years after it first popped up on the market. This is particularly audacious considering the building’s already shaky history, which is fraught with buyer back-outs, lawsuits, and heavy price cuts. Still, the penthouse surges ahead asking more than $6,000 per square foot and daring anyone to challenge it. And what do you get for $60 million dollars plus $44,645 per month in common charges?

The 9,800-square-foot Jacques Grange-designed condop, has five fireplaces, tall ceilings throughout, and a double-height living room with 26-foot ceilings, a fireplace, and a wet bar. A Piero Lissoni-designed kitchen features a custom island, wine coolers, and top of the line appliances by Sub-Zero, Gaggenau, and Miele. There’s also a breakfast room, a formal dining room, and a library, along with a state-of-the-art Crestron home automated system, and remote thermostats in every room.

The home has six bedrooms, each with adjoining or en suite bathrooms. A double-sided fireplace divides the master suite in two, with the bedroom on one side and a sitting room on the other. The suite also has his and her custom closets and bathrooms outfitted with a steam room and Lefroy Brooks fixtures.

A sky-lit conservatory featuring a custom staircase designed by Eric Schmitt takes you to a roof pavilion with a fireplace, a wet bar, and a library. The rest of the roof is dedicated to a 2,400-square-foot private terrace overlooking Central Park and the city.
