Penthouse in New York’s Woolworth Building is topping the chart of world’s most expensive properties

Set at the upper floors of the prestigious Woolworth Building, one of Manhattan’s most celebrated architectures, the world’s most expensive apartment has hit the market at a sick price


Woolworth Building's five-storey penthouse is up for grab at the gateway of Tribeca

The Woolworth Building was originally completed by architect Cass Gilbert in Manhattan in 1913. The tallest skyscraper in the world back in the day, it still soars at the gateway of Tribeca, New York. Strong of its Neo-Gothic architectural codes, the building has progressively lost its enviable height record whilst gaining the nickname, “the pinnacle”, thanks to its pointed, green, copper-clad peak. The same that, nowadays, is home to the world’s most pricey penthouse which has just hit the market at the price of $110 million. If the deal is struck, the Woolworth – whose top 30 floors out of 58 have been converted to residential purposes – would set an unprecedented record.

Located on 57th Street, the five-storey luxury penthouse stretches on a 900-square-metre area and comprises 7-metre-high ceilings and private elevator – an actual architectural gem allowing for 360-degrees views of Manhattan’s skyline likely to be the most spectacular in the whole New York. The number of bedrooms and bathrooms can be chosen by the lucky buyer, who will benefit from plenty of exclusive amenities like a communal SPA with a sauna and hot tub, a fitness studio and a wine cellar with tasting room. 

With such key location, a panoramic outdoor terrace is clearly a must: a 400-square-metre stretch of private property, it raises 220 metres above street level and is framed by the building’s copper and terracotta tiles façade. Any vertigo lovers with a fat wallet should definitely go for a luxury penthouse like this.
