Poker Player's A Building Penthouse Now Has Lower Buy In

CurbedAugust 07, 2012
Pro poker player Phil Galfond earned our undying admiration when he hired Turrett Collaborative Architects to build a helical slide connecting two penthouse condos in (of course) the A Building. Unfortunately, Galfond, who moved to Canada following a Justice Department crackdown on online poker, hasn't had much luck reselling his quirky former home base. He listed it in February for $3.99 million (we filmed it shortly thereafter) and now, EV Grieve points out, the place has been PriceChopped to $3,699,000. Sadly, we'd need Galfond's skill at poker before we could put in an offer.
