Look Inside The $50 Million Penthouses In One Of The Tallest Buildings In The World

Amy Dobson
March 15, 2019


The building where Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez have listed their condo for $17 million is considered the tallest residential building in the western hemisphere, but it has some strong competition for the title when compared to this nearly topped out supertall tower at 111 West 57th Street. It will rise to 1,428 feet thanks to its ornate decorative top piece, which makes it a tad taller than the 1,396 feet of 432 Park Avenue (where the newly engaged Rodriguez-Lopez duo have a listing and where its developer hung a huge banner proclaiming his love for his fiancée).

The last time we looked at this building was when the developers sent along some photos of the views from the upper floors. Now that the building is getting close to reaching its top, there is a full set of renderings from the development and design team, which consists of the five member strong JDS Development Group, Property Markets Group, Spruce Capital Partners, Studio Sofield and SHoP architects. While its residential floors don't quite rise to the height of the 432 Park, let's not quibble about which is the tallest building when there are $50 million penthouses to gaze at.

Of the 46 units in the entire building there are at least two penthouses asking over $50 million. There's penthouse #74 for $57 million and penthouse #72 for $56 million. Both of them are two-story, four-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bathroom units measuring about 7,130 square feet. Each one comes with private elevator access and a second in-unit elevator, white macuba stone floors and a sculptural staircase between the two levels. Here's a look at the staircase:


The layout of each unit is to have the bedrooms on the upper level and all the communal and entertaining spaces on the lower level. The "great halls," as the developers have referred to main living spaces, are built to have the views of Central Park as the focus of the room, as you can see in this rendering.

According to a rep for the building they are wide enough to fit nine Steinway Orchestral Grand Pianos—which measure just over five feet—all the way across the room. Compared to the average living room width of a single-family townhouse in Manhattan (approximately 24.5 feet), these are about twice as wide.


There are multiple kitchen configurations according to a rep for the developer.


The master bedroom has its own entire wing with a sitting room and wet bar, two bathrooms and closet measuring more than 230 square feet.


Here's a look at the master bathroom. Both this image and the one above are a good example of how the exterior of the building—a terra cotta and bronze cladding—looks from the inside of the building.


The rest of the building is equal in its luxury factor. Here's a look at the entrance with ornate golden gates flanking the arrival steps that complement the exterior facade.


And the 82-foot lap pool underneath a vaulted ceiling.


The outdoor private terrace where everyone can mingle.

Are there any stats as to the percentage of space that is actually inhabited full time by tenants or owners for these ultra luxury towers? I would be interested in knowing how many floors just sit empty as investment properties and arent actually ever lived in. I bet its something like 15% are actually lived in full time.
