A full-floor penthouse condo at the brand new One57 recently sold for just over $47 Million, according to the New York Times. The 90-story skyscraper built by the Extell Development Company, has become popular safe haven for the world's billionaires to park their money. Standing over Central Park South at 1,005 feet high, One57 offers the super-elite unparallelled amenities and views of the entire city
The condo, dubbed No. 88, is located on the 88th floor and was purchased through the limited liability company called Pac Wholly Own. Records show the LLC is associated with the Pacific American Corporation, a New York subsidiary of the HNA Group, which is one of China’s largest private airline companies. This past February, another comparable condo on the 86th floor went for nearly the same price.
Even more remarkable, an undisclosed buyer paid $100.5 Million back in December for a 89th and 90th floor unit, making it the most priciest condo sale ever. The record sale at One57 surpassed a $88 million purchase at 15 Central Park West penthouse in 2012 by the Russian fertilizer tycoon Dmitry Rybolovlev’s daughter, Ekaterina Rybolovleva.
