America’s Priciest Listings of 2012
The Real DealDecember 31, 2012This past year, New York City has seen some shattering purchases, such as the $88 million 15 Central Park West apartment sale and the $90 million One57 contract. But what about listings? Curbed rounded up the year’s priciest properties to come online throughout the country. Of the 10, four are located in New York City, though according to Streeteasy.com, one of the listings was taken off the market in October.
The CitySpire triplex penthouse is currently the city’s priciest, but the nation’s fifth most expensive. The home, owned by Long Island developer Steven Lar, has 360-degree views and 3,000 square feet of outdoor space. However, as The Real Deal reported, some industry executives say the property does not warrant such a hefty price tag.
The next three have asking prices of $95 million and directly follow the CitySpire penthouse on the list. One of them is a full-floor unit at 15 Central Park West. Emily Beare of CORE has this listing, the home has five bathrooms, five bathrooms and two half baths. Steel mogul Leroy Schecter listed the property in August.
Another one of the $95 million listings on the Curbed list is a unit at the Ritz Carlton Hotel at 50 Central Park South. Dianne Weston of Halstead Property is named as the listing broker, but Streeteasy shows that the unit is no longer on the market. The third $95 million listing is at the Sherry Netherland. Dolly Lenz of Douglas Elliman and Kathy Sloane of Brown Harris Stevens have the listing for the seven-bedroom, eight-bathroom home. The co-op home is a full-floor unit. As previously reported, the owner of the unit is Liberty Travel founder Gilbert Haroche. The home totals 9,000 square feet and includes 2,000 square feet of outdoor terrace space.
As for the top three priciest listings, they’re located in Los Angeles and listed for $150 million each, according to rumors. One of them is a Beverley Hills compound owned by real estate investor Jeff Greene. [Curbed] –Zachary Kussin
