From the NY Times:
A mystery buyer has agreed to pay a record price in New York of more
than $90 million for the duplex penthouse [the 10,923-square-foot penthouse on the 89th and 90th floors] at a Midtown tower, the
building’s developer said Thursday.
Despite setting a record, the One57 penthouse did not crack the elusive
$100 million barrier for a residence, which has not been broken either
in New York or in Los Angeles. Mr. Barnett said he nearly broke it with a different apartment at One57. “I am hopeful we will break it one day,” he said of the $100 million barrier, “in this building or another one.”
