Mystery buyer snaps up two condos for a combined $157.5million in New York Billionaire's Row mega-tower in one of the city's priciest-ever residential sales

By Ariel Zilber
14 Jun 2021


This tower will have a comparable 119 units, in addition to the hotel.
Great to know!
Billionaires' Row is a stretch of ultra-extravagance structures close by West 57th Street. High rises have gradually been getting taller and more slender for a really long time. Be that as it may, Billionaires' Row has brought about another type of high rise completely - the super-thin private pinnacle. Meanwhile, finding an affordable apartment in the city as a non-billionaire can be nearly impossible.

You keep using that word, I don't think it means what you think it means.

I wouldn't expect to find an affordable home in Beverly Hills, Bel Aire, Mayfair, Knightsbridge, Roppongi Hills, Brickell Avenue, Fisher Island, etc. either

I totally agree.

Sadly, this isn’t the place to go on your affordable housing rant. But to say that it’s impossible to find an affordable apartment in the city unless you are a billionaire is just ridiculous, particularly in a city who’s population has been booming (nearly 9 million). Be content with the extra boost in transit improvements this tower will provide.

I'm not rich, but I'm able to own a home in New York (the Bronx, anyway) with a net worth of less than 1/20 of one percent of a billion dollars. Not everyone should live on 57th Street.

To me, it seems like the quote is more about at least concern and perhaps frustration with income inequality in places like NYC. It can make you feel a little 'bad' about your plainish apartment or condo, even it is valued in the hundreds of thousands or if it is more than sufficient for you and your family, when you hear about people buying mega-homes for $100 million....(just my opinion)...

If you want to complain about Billionaires' row and places like it (Whether for the skyscraper designs themselves, their thinness, etc. Or the costs associated), maybe redirect your attention to the outdated laws that are the reason they exist.
And I'm using this to Segway into this https://therealdeal.com/2022/01/19/h...is-tall-order/
This could be massive for the city if it went through, getting rid of the outdated laws made by people in the middle of the worst of 1960s suburban urban thinking.

Removing the 12 FAR residential cap - and then amending the zoning to make it usable in the City - would induce a ton of residential construction.

People, I didn’t intend that as in invitation to continue a debate about affordable housing, but to end it, particularly in this thread. The discussion can be taken elsewhere.

Aerial view showing the dense surroundings of this lot, as well as proximity to Steinway....












Maybe one of our artists can insert the building here...

I’m so pumped about 270 Park that I almost forgot about this 1,100’ icon!
