Our New Central Park Tower Penthouse Listing

SERHANT.'s latest luxury real estate listing is an architectural wonder that elevates opulent penthouse living to record-breaking heights.
New York City scarcely suffers from a lack of spectacular residential real estate. Across all five boroughs, it's easy enough to find show-stopping properties—posh penthouses, elegant brownstones, or lavish flats. Every few years, though, a dwelling makes such a dazzling market debut industry experts question whether any future development could top it.  
Such is the case for the latest and most prestigious SERHANT. listing to date—the Penthouse at Central Park Tower.
Proudly billed as The One Above All Else, the Penthouse is the crown jewel of a $3 billion architectural and engineering marvel. The newest addition to Manhattan's vaunted Billionaires Row, the listing is an audacious and brilliantly conceived reminder of what's attainable with unfettered imagination and a willingness to aspire for impossible new heights.
More than just a home that sits atop one of the world's greatest cities, the Penthouse redefines residential luxury in a manner few have ever envisioned.
Listed at $250 million, the Penthouse is currently the world's most expensive residential listing. When stepping across the threshold of this ultra-luxe residence, shrewd buyers understand there is no premium too great for such unparalleled grandeur.

The Numbers

Beyond an ideal location—and Central Park Tower's Midtown, Billionaire's Row address is as phenomenal as one can claim—Manhattan's ultra-exclusive penthouse market is a numbers game. Though not always in terms of a property's opening list price or final closing cost.
Sure, those two benchmarks regularly make for good headlines, and there's no denying the Penthouse's $250 million tag is a head turner. But for purveyors of the world's most exclusive real estate, generational properties that define a portfolio are less about what's printed on the final receipt. Instead, what's published for posterity matters most.
The figures accompanying Central Park Tower and its record-breaking penthouse tally a unique, one-of-a-kind proposition:
●      1,416 - The prize of Central Park Tower's 179 residences, the multilevel Penthouse is the world's tallest residential home—a measure above the loftiest offerings of 111 West 57th Street and 432 Park Avenue in Manhattan and Marina 101 and The Princess Tower in Dubai.
●      1,550 - Upon completion in 2020, Central Park Tower became the world's tallest residential building topping out at 1,550 feet. The glimmering, instant icon is also the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere when measured by roof height. Only the spire atop One World Trade Center precludes it from the overall record.
●      17,545 - Palatial by every measure, the Penthouse's more than 17,500 square foot interior extends across three full floors and includes a 1,433-square foot outdoor terrace—the world's highest outdoor space.
The record-breaking stats represent a fraction of what's on display throughout this triumphant architectural masterpiece.

The Residence

The triplex floor plan—traversing the entirety of Central Park Tower's 129th, 130th, and 131st floors—is functional yet flashy. A chameleon of residential design, the Penthouse effortlessly transitions between intimate family spaces and those conceived for hosting gregarious social affairs.
The exhilaration begins on the Penthouse's first level with luxurious living spaces. A sprawling gallery welcomes you and proves ideal for displaying bold canvasses and prized sculptures from an owner's personal art collection. The floor-to-ceiling windows and soaring 27-foot ceiling capture your eye when entering the 1,575-square-foot grand salon. The open, flexible layout serves a multitude of configurations, from festive family gatherings to lively cocktail parties. Similarly, the gorgeous, 500-square-foot formal dining room accommodates intimate dining, holiday feasts, or banquet-style dinners.
The remainder of the Penthouse's first level is set aside for an owner's private moments or personal pursuits. A well-appointed informal kitchen and warm, cozy living room offer refuge from a day's demands. The smartly conceived media room, library, and observatory afford ample opportunity to explore favorite hobbies and passions.
A welcoming guest suite and a private staff room complete the first floor's layout.
The second level harbors five more bedrooms and an additional six bathrooms (overall, the home features eight full bathrooms and three powder rooms). A 250-square-foot gaming lounge tucks into the southeast corner, complete with a wet bar and superb, unobstructed views of Lower Manhattan and the East River.
The standout here is the Penthouse's owner's suite. Occupying the entire north wing of the 130th floor, your day starts with a panorama of the sun casting its rays across the lush, green landscape of Central Park. It ends with the glimmering luminance from the city that never sleeps. Boasting over 1,200 square feet of space, the private retreat includes a standalone sitting room, a 375-square-foot bedroom, and dual bathrooms and dressing areas. A nearly 40-foot-long gallery links the suite together in sensational fashion.

The 131st Floor

For even the most discerning buyers, the first two floors of the Central Park Tower penthouse elicit an urge to add Manhattan's most lauded residential masterpiece to their real estate cache.
Then comes the 131st floor, propelling that urge to insatiable desire.
Harmonizing the work hard, play hard mantra of today's ultra-wealthy entrepreneur, developer Gary Barnett and his Extell Development Company, along with design firm Adrian Smith + Gordon Gill Architecture, crafted a glamorous, revolutionary entertainment venue for the modern-day fête set. 
As sophisticated as any boutique hotel conference space, the Penthouse's 131st floor claims the world's highest private ballroom, a voluminous 2,000-square foot room overlooking Central Park. Directly accessible from the ballroom, the aforementioned highest terrace on Earth boosts the layout to nearly 3,500 square feet of open, unobstructed entertainment space. As a point of reference, the largest venue at the neighboring Four Seasons Hotel New York measures a little over 3,100 square feet.
How one configures the Penthouse's private ballroom and terrace is limited only by one's imagination, though the view from each is certain to guide your inspiration. A fully equipped, professional-grade catering kitchen, twin powder rooms, coat room, and dedicated service elevator further elevate the third floor's functionality.
A private study, gym, and additional storage fill out the 131st floor's amenity package.
Access to all three floors of the Penthouse is easy enough via elevator (one private interior lift and three more opening onto a reception hall on each floor). Though owner and guests alike may opt to eschew an automated ride for the bold elegance of the Penthouse's spiral staircase. Occupying the Penthouse's northwest corner, the structure is art in motion. Floating upward within a 40-foot-high glass-encased shadow box, you ascend and descend while overlooking Columbus Circle, Broadway, and the Upper West side neighborhood.

The Views

Leaving behind the busyness of Midtown Manhattan's vibrant neighborhood streets, one of the most remarkable sensory experiences of this tony address is what you see and hear. Or, when considering the latter point, what you don't hear. Stepping out onto the home's glass-lined terrace places you more than a quarter-mile above the din of the city. No bustle or bluster. Instead, standing atop the world, laying claim to the globe's highest physical residence, and living life with the tranquility it provides.
The Penthouse's lofty asking price feels like the deal of the century when considering the sweeping, jaw-dropping views such a price affords you.
To the north, the whole of Central Park's 843 acres unfurls as a ribbon of silky, green tulle; the Hudson River bending off into the horizon of upstate New York.
To the south, the brilliance of Manhattan takes center stage—an unobstructed glimpse into Times Square, eye-level views of the Empire State Building and One World Trade Center, the full scope of Manhattan Island's most celebrated neighborhoods—from Hell's Kitchen and Midtown East to Chelsea, Flatiron, Tribeca and beyond.
To the east and west, awe-inspiring horizons. On one side, as the sun sets, you can't dismiss the knowledge that the whole country is laid out before you. On the other, beyond the rooflines of your Billionaire's Row neighbors, is the prospect of the entire North Atlantic Ocean reaching towards Europe.
Then, there's the realization that on the clearest of days, regardless of which direction you look, it's possible to discern the slightest of curves on the Earth's horizon.

The Building

Of course, no home as majestic as the Penthouse is fully realized without a building that mirrors its opulence and grandeur. Completed in 2020, within two short years, Central Park Tower has earned its place as one of the most prestigious residential properties in the world.
As the globe's highest residential building, the acclaim is well-earned, and the sheer daring in its conception and construction represents one of the city's greatest achievements, real estate or otherwise.
The amenity list echoes the Tower's iconic stature, most notably the exclusive Central Park Club and its 50,000-square feet of resort-class venues.
Health-conscious owners appreciate Central Park Club's state-of-the-art wellness center. Catering to multiple fitness needs, the center includes a modern fitness center with the latest exercise machines, an indoor saltwater pool and spa, an indoor sports court, and accommodations for private health and training services.
Residents seeking entertainment turn to the club's 30-seat Art Deco screening room and The Living Room resident's lounge and billiard room. Outside, a lavish 60-foot pool with sun deck and cabanas is the Tower's glam-filled spot to see and be seen. The Terrace Green Courtyard Park is an elegant Billionaires Row escape for seclusion or use as an intimate outdoor event space.
Occupying the 100th floor are the Central Park Tower's most generous amenities—the highest private restaurant and grand ballroom ever to grace the New York City skyline. A swanky sky lounge is ideal for a before or after-dinner cocktail. The restaurant is supported by a group of Michelin-starred chefs, while lifestyle specialists and support staff ensure no resident lacks in service or accommodation across any of the Tower's world-class amenities.
