This $118.5 Million Ritz-Carlton Penthouse Duplex is the Most Expensive Condo in Lower Manhattan


By: Kristin Tablang

Nest Seekers International broker Ryan Serhant’s newest listing—a 15,434-square-foot property in the Ritz-Carlton—has officially shattered the record for priciest apartment in lower Manhattan with an eye-popping $118 million price tag.

Occupying the top two floors of the 40-story Ritz Carlton in Battery Park, the resplendent property is comprised of three neighboring units—a four-bedroom, five-bath duplex owned by financier Randall Yanker, previously listed for $19 million, and two apartments owned by Five Star Electric’s Gary Segal, one of which is a 7,600-square-foot pad that was put on the market for $56.5 million last year. The phenomenal trio boasts magnificent views of the Hudson River, the Statue of Liberty, and One World Trade Center.

The “Million Dollar Listing” star has reportedly shown the gilded condo—located at 10 West Street—to a number of potential buyers, and has already been receiving offers well within the ballpark of the nine-figure asking.


Apartamento P1: Ciudad de México


Este apartamento está situado en la Ciudad de México, justo en la última planta de un edificio de 10 pisos. Es un ático dúplex de 600m2 que tiene una privilegiada panorámica urbana, está desarrollado con una distribución de amplias estancias, y cuenta con un acabado repleto de materiales nobles (principalmente madera).

Las vistas a la ciudad no solo son accesibles desde la terraza-jardín, también desde cualquier otra habitación de la casa, ya que el edificio presenta una fachada muy acristalada. La madera se ha utilizado como pavimento, pero también la podemos ver en los peldaños de la elegante escalera que conduce a los dormitorios, en el parapeto que protege el hueco a doble altura sobre el salón principal, y en numerosos muebles, siendo algunos de ellos auténticas piezas maestras del diseño internacional.

El Apartamento P1 es también es una buena fuente de inspiración a la hora de buscar una moderna decoración de salas y de interiores.


Jon Bon Jovi’s SoHo Penthouse Dons a New Price Tag

JBJByKristin Tablang 

Jon Bon Jovi has once again posted a “for sale” sign in front of his spectacular SoHo duplex.

Bon Jovi purchased the property for $24 million in 2007, then quickly put it back on the market after subjecting it to a wondrous facelift. The rock star officially began to advertise the 7,452 square-foot pad last March for $42 million after he failed to find any takers off-market; six months later, however, still unable to find a suitable buyer, he cut the asking price to $39.9 million, and when that didn’t work, he took the property off the market last January.

This time around, the penthouse is rocking a new asking price, donning a cool $37.5 million tag.

Poised atop the New Museum Building in SoHo, the sprawling, glass-encased condominium boasts a handful of bedrooms including a west-facing, opulent master suite (complete with a walk-in closet and an elegant private bath); a number of fireplaces; a media room; a laundry room; and a magnificent rooftop deck.
