    As legendary and iconic as it may be, the Pierre penthouse will NEVER sell for more than $100 million.

    There are way too many draw backs. The lay-out of the Triplex is uncanny and known to be not very homely.
    -The iconic ballroom is way too large and doesn’t fit in a family home. As many realtors have commented, it takes up way too much space for a room that’s primarily purpose is for functions and artwork.
    -The bedrooms do not have the desired Central Park views as they should, for a penthouse of this magnitude.
    -It would cost “….approximately $15 – $25 million to reconfigure, remodel and restructure.”, as per many realtors who are familiar with previous listings of the penthouse in the past.

    New York’s possible $100 million + penthouses are still:
    1. 625 Park Avenue Triplex Penthouse, the former home of Princess Ashraf Pahlavi.
    2. 740 Park Avenue Triplex Penthouse, the former Rockerfeller penthouse.
    3. The Beresford Penthouse.
    4. 15 Central Park West Triplex Penthouse, owned by Hedge Fund CEO Daniel Loeb. (And NO, it is not the small $88 million penthouse that the Russian billionaire bought.)

    1) While it does look like a fantastic space, Avi mentioned the drawbacks. Looks very dated in the new photos.
    3) Tony Robbins scares me. He looks like someone that would paint rocks to make them look like Easter eggs and throw them at children. Gorgeous house though, and I’m surprised it went for as much as it did.

    1.) Price is a joke. I know NYC power properties are selling at alarming prices butas Avi mentioned, it needs way too much work and is somewhat unpractical for most lifestyles.

    2.) Snooze.

    3.) Don’t like the house insideat all. Way overpaid for a spec home. This same floorplan / overall house with minimal changes has been built dozens of times over throughout Boca/Palm Beach.

    4.) It’s NJ, Gross.

      You’re right about #3. The only person who recycles home designs more than Mark Timothy is Dan Swanson (Addison Development).

    I think the Pierre looks like a fantasy penthouse from the outside, but AVI educated me. This is why it pays to get expert advice and not always go on your gut. AVI your check is in the mail. The rest are just kind of stuff we have seen before. PS. Good penthouse list AVI.

    With the Russians and Chinese laundering and hiding money, who knows what that NYC penthouse will go for. I would not be surprised if it went for full price or near to full price, especially with Putin murdering that billionaire last week.
