Most Expensive New Listing: $64M NYC Penthouse Perched Over MoMA

A brand-new duplex penthouse in the Jean Nouvel–designed tower in midtown Manhattan has just come on the market for $64 million, making it this week’s most expensive new listing on®.

In the making for over a decade, the building is apparently near completion. According to real estate firm Corcoran, occupancy is scheduled for late 2018—so the sales effort has begun in earnest.

At 1,050 feet tall, the residential skyscraper is the height of the Chrysler Building and contains 145 units, including the magnificent penthouse.

Taking up the 76th and 77th floors of the 82-floor tower, the pricey penthouse is perched above the Museum of Modern Art, or MoMA.

The sky-high abode also boasts awe-inspiring views of Central Park, the Hudson River, the East River, and the downtown skyline.

The 7,973-square-foot layout features interiors by Thierry Despont and has four bedrooms and four bathrooms. Nouvel’s innovative structural system, called the “diagrid,” is showcased. Structural beams run diagonally throughout the residence and are “expressed like a graceful, abstract piece of sculpture.”

Other high-end details of the luxury condo include a gas-burning fireplace, private elevator, corner dining room facing Central Park, and eat-in kitchen with marble countertops and designer appliances.

The floor-through master suite on the north and south corners of the second floor includes a walk-in closet and master bath, which features Noir St. Laurent marble, golden travertine, and Verona limestone, according to the listing. And of course, the floors are heated.

The building will offer an array of amenities, including a 65-foot lap pool, gym, private theater, private wine vaults, concierge service, and 24/7 door attendants. Services such as housekeeping, pet walking, and pantry stocking can be provided for additional fees. The development will eventually include a MoMA expansion on the ground floor, as well as a restaurant.

Art lovers will appreciate the easy access to the adjoining museum, as well as free museum membership provided by condo ownership.
