Stunning bathtub views from 432 Park Avenue New York City; the tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere


It has yet to be completed, but the artists impressions alone make for a big wow. 432 Park Avenue in New York’s swanky midtown area will be the tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere once completed in 2015. Yes, that’s right, 2015. All images below are rendered images of what the building will, and interior could look like. The views will be hard to beat, that’s for sure. But I’m already dizzy with vertigo just THINKING of taking a bath there, so not for me.

videotour of NYC’s most expensive penthouse at $100 million


Not sure how the Dutch saying ‘Baas boven baas’ translates to English, but the $65 million apartment in an earlier post has met its match. The penthouse in the video below is on the market for $100 million… the most expensive listing the city has ever seen….

One of NYC’s most expensive apartments for sale at $65.000.000


It’s the most expensive Co-op apartment ever in NYC. But whoever has this much cash available, or gets his bank to join in, will not regret it. A whooping 12000 square feet (which is about 1200 m2) and so many terraces that one was converted in an outdoor ice skating rink for a party once. The owner, Grammy Nominated songwriter Denise Rich (what’s in a name), is selling it as she suffers from empty nest syndrome. I wonder, with a house this big, if you even notice if your housemates are home or out…..

The apartment comprises two floors with a total of 19 rooms, amazing views of the whole of Central Park a professional recording studio, gym and billiard room and several kitchens and full bathrooms.

At $5.400 per square foot, it’s actually quite a lot ‘cheaper than the record condo — not co-op — price of $13,000 per square foot, which is what former Citigroup Chairman Sandy Weill’s triplex at 15 Central Park West recently sold for. I have yet to figure out what exactly is the difference between an co-op and condo, but my guess is it has to do with full ownership? Anyhow; not intending to buy either anytime soon so plenty of time to worry about that later.
