This spectacular duplex penthouse was on sale for several years before it finally found an owner last June. Originally listed at $14 million, it eventually sold for “just” $10 million. Occupying the 17th and 18th floors of the Astor Place Tower in New York City, the apartment boasts 4,411 square feet of space. It has a 664-square-foot mezzanine, three bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms and a 538-square-foot terrace on the upper floor, affording sweeping views of the city.
The masterminds behind this project were Charles Gwathmey and Robert Siegel, who completed the “sculpture for living” tower in 2006. The building is a mix of residential and commercial spaces with 39 superb loft residences and 13,000 square feet of retail space.
