Apartments in Manhattan at the One57 Building
This NYC Condo or so called “billionaire’s club” that has recently formed on the top 15 floors of Midtown’s One57 building. Several of the new owners of the building’s top sections have commissioned their own designers to finish their full-floor Manhattan apartments.
Seven of the building’s 11 full-floor units and two duplex units have already sold to a group of mostly undisclosed billionaires that includes fashion moguls Silas Chou and Lawrence Stroll – both paying about $50 million for their 85th and 82nd-floor units. Both Chou and Stroll plan to finish their units themselves rather than with Extell’s Danish designer Thomas Juul-Hansen.
To head-off potential construction headaches, agreements with the full-floor buyers would allow Extell to do most of the “heavy-work.” But in cases where agreements could not be reached, buyers were denied access.
If the guy wanted to do his own stuff and wouldn’t let us do what we were going to do, the developer would tell the buyer to “forget it, and I don’t want to go through with this.”
