One57 and the Central Park South skyline (Photo credit: Wade Zimmerman) One57 and the Central Park South skyline (Photo credit: Wade Zimmerman)
When luxury tower One57 was still on the drawing board, its planned height, finishes, and amenities were unheard of for that part of New York. However, buyers embraced its central location, sweeping views, and amenities that include residents-only offerings and perks of the Park Hyatt hotel in the building. This was not a flashy novelty, but a building that has stayed on buyers' minds - six homes at One57 were sold this year, bringing the property up to 90% sold.

“Throughout this pandemic, we have never stopped believing in the strength and resiliency of New York City” - Gary Barnett, Founder and Chairman, Extell

In recent years, the stretch of West 57th Street now known as Billionaires Row has seen new construction set on exceeding the height and luxury offered at standard-setter One57. Among them is Central Park Tower, another Extell venture formerly known as Nordstrom Tower for its retail tenant. As of this writing, Central Park Tower reports 15 new deals signed and pending; many are three-bedroom units with spectacular views of Central Park, and the others range from two-bedroom homes to full-floor units.
In honor of these milestones, we take a look at the ten most expensive apartment sales in New York City. However, the list might not stay this way for long - between offering plans at other high-rises and high-priced listings, we could see breakthroughs. And if the first resale at 220 Central Park South is anything to go on, the appetite for apartments of this type shows no sign of abating.



10. 432 Park Avenue, #64A – $75,000,000 ($9,331 / ft2)

Apartment 64A occupies half its high floor at 432 Park Avenue. Interiors boast a gracious foyer, a corner living/dining room, a library, a laundry room, and a windowed kitchen with two dishwashers in the center island and built-in coffee machine and wine fridge.

While the majority of the city’s most expensive sales ever are found in glistening new high-rises, a notable exception may be found at 834 Fifth Avenue, a Rosario Candela-designed cooperative dating back to 1931 and considered among the architect's finest works. New York Jets owner Woody Johnson sold apartment 1112 to Ukrainian-born billionaire Leonard Blavatnik in April 2015, and it still holds the record for New York’s most expensive co-op ever sold. CityRealty attributes this to extremely limited supply and high demand.

8. 432 Park Avenue, #96 – $87,660,898 ($10,619 / ft2)

According to the Observer, the buyer is believed to be Saudi retail magnate Fawaz al Hokair.

When One57 was under construction, William Ackman was identified as the buyer of a duplex penthouse said to be used as “a fun investment” as opposed to a residence. Between the Grand Salon with wet bar, formal dining room, chef’s kitchen with breakfast room, and entertainment suite opening up to a “winter garden” (glass atrium), there is no shortage of space for the extravagant parties the apartment was said to host. The upper-level primary suite has a walk-in closet and two baths, and the other upper-level bedrooms enjoy generous closet space and en suite baths.

At the end of 2019, Daniel Och was identified as the buyer of PH73 at 220 Central Park South, having listed his apartment at 15 Central Park West in preparation for the move. The apartment’s formal dining room, kitchen, library, media room, and fifth bedroom all open up to private terraces.

Not only is PH76 home to one of the most expensive sales in New York, but its 850 square feet of private outdoor space may be among the city’s highest. An elevator lobby opens up to a grand foyer and gallery connecting the entertaining rooms, which include a large living room, formal dining room, chef’s kitchen, and media room with a private terrace. Upstairs, two of the four bedrooms have private terraces. The primary bedroom is not one of them, but it does feature two dressing rooms (one with a walk-in closet), two en suite baths, and a morning kitchen.

Before 220 Central Park South shattered the record, the city’s most expensive sale was a duplex penthouse at One57 in a transaction that would seal the street’s reputation as Billionaires Row. The Wall Street Journal identified the buyer as Michael Dell and reported that he had tapped Miro Rivera Architects for a renovation of the property. Floor plans show a clear division between living and sleeping areas: The lower level is devoted to entertaining with a Grand Salon, formal dining room, kitchen, library, and gracious gallery to connect the rooms. The upstairs bedrooms all have generous closet space and en suite baths, and the primary suite boasts a walk-in closet and two baths.

At the beginning of 2019, Ken Griffin’s purchase at 220 Central Park South set a new record for the highest-priced home ever sold in the United States. The Wall Street Journal reported that the apartment would be delivered as an unfurnished white box, and the massive spread comes with a private terrace with views to the north, south, and east. Interiors boast a massive living room, a “sunset salon,” an eat-in kitchen with breakfast room, and an enormous primary suite with two dressing rooms, two en suite baths, a sitting room, and a morning kitchen.
