  • Duplex Penthouse at 56 Leonard in Contract for $47 Million By Aby Thomas | June 27, 2013

    When New York City’s real estate sector learnt that the penthouse at 56 Leonard Street in Tribeca had been listed for $50 million, there were many who had scoffed at the glass tower’s ability to command such a price in Downtown Manhattan. After all, the 820-foot tall building had been the subject of much debate in the recent past—be it the steep prices of the homes here, or its avant-garde, Jenga-like architecture, there has been a lot of love and criticism leveled at 56 Leonard.

  • Despite Low Profile, New UWS Condo Sets the Pace By Daniel Muhlenberg | March 14, 2012

    Even though condo sales on Manhattan’s Upper West Side and Upper East Side have lost steam recently - downtown lofts, condos, and penthouses are far outshining them - one luxury apartment building is defying these trends with steady sales and rising prices. The Laureate, located at 2150 Broadway on the corner of West 76th Street, has been selling luxury condos and penthouses at a steady clip for some time now, and it might be due in part to the fact that its owner, Shlomi Reuveni, refuses to reveal the identity or nationality of its buyers.

We wrote that it was one of the largest purchases in the history of Manhattan real estate. But it turns out that other developers heard about the sale and thought “eh, that’s not so much.” So now we have the pleasure of reporting that one of the penthouses in the enormous ultra-luxury One57 building at 157 West 57th Street in Midtown West, is now going for $110 million, or $10,700 per square foot.
