Billionaire’s Row Penthouse Becomes Most Expensive Listing in the U.S. Asking $250M

Los Angeles and New York tug back and forth about who’s best in a variety of categories: Food, culture, fashion, etc. And, these cities also often go back and forth with who has America’s priciest listing. The famed Bel Air property dubbed “The One” held the title earlier this year, listing for $295 million and later selling in bankruptcy deal for $141 million when you add in all fees. As of today, the title is in the Big Apple since Central Park Tower’s crowning triplex penthouse has listed for $250 million.

There are a lot of titles when it comes to Central Park Tower, developed by Extell, and this mega-listing in particular. Not only is this the most expensive home for sale in the U.S. now, but it sits atop the tallest residential building in the world. That makes this the highest residence in the world, reaching 1,416 feet tall. The 17,454-square-foot penthouse with 1,433 square feet of exterior space is also the largest unit in Central Park Tower, not to mention the largest condo for sale in all of New York City. It holds the highest private ballroom and the highest private terrace in the world, too. Told you, a lot of titles.

Occupying the 129th, 130th, and 131st floors with a grand staircase connecting them together, it’s nothing short of showstopping. Glass everywhere, it feels like there’s not a corner of NYC you can’t lay your eyes on. And, while you may expect there to be upwards of 15 bedrooms, there are just seven to utilize.

Marketed as “The One Above All Else,” it seems the price of living on top of the world is $250 million. If the Billionaire’s Row penthouse sells for that amount, this will be America’s priciest residence ever sold.
