June’s most expensive real estate transaction resulted in a slight discount.
The luxurious Carnegie Hill suite on 180 East 88th Street was sold for a cash transaction of $24.7 million, which was fifteen percent lower than the already-lowered asking rate, according to public records.
In 2017, Joe McMillan’s DDG developed a 5,500-square-foot triplex apartment listed for sale at $28 million. Five years later, the amount rose to $33 million, however by January it had been reduced to $29 million.
Boasting 13-foot ceilings, the unit contains five bedrooms and four bathrooms as well as a range of upscale amenities such as a private, key-card elevator, heated floors and two powder rooms. For even more luxurious living, the apartment offers a wet bar, custom staircase connecting the second and third levels, 3,500 square feet of outdoor space and an extraordinary 2,100-square-foot roof terrace that overlooks Central Park and the East River.
Viewers familiar with Succession will be aware of the featured location, which was seen in the introductory moments of the Emmy Award-winning show’s fourth episode
Not only is this a deluxe apartment in the sky, it’s also a penthouse that has appeared in the HBO series “Succession” — and now, away from the screen, it has a new owner.
This penthouse, perched on the 90th floor of 35 Hudson Yards — which serves as the fictional home of the murderous, plotting and tortured son Kendall Roy (Jeremy Strong) — has sold for $35 million, according to city property records.
The identity of the buyer isn’t known. Whoever it is, they aptly purchased it under a shell company named Sky Palace LLC.
