This penthouse in a New York City building designed by the award winning architect Jean Nouvel has set to list for $25 million. Boasting lots of space and a bold glass and white marble design, the home adds to what is already a very active luxury market in New York.
The condo’s current owners, Daniel Fischel and Sylvia Neil, both worked at the University of Chicago’s law school. Mr. Fischel is also currently the president of the economic consulting firm, Compass Lexecon.
The condo is around 5,000 square feet and comes with four bedrooms. It also has a very extensive rooftop terrace. Located at 100 11th Ave in Chelsea, it will be the most expensive sale in the Chelsea neighborhood this year, if it sells for the asking price. Home sales in downtown Manhattan in the 3rd quarter of this year are up a staggering 250% compared to the same time last year.
The building itself is quite striking, constructed in a C shape with over 1,500 exterior windows of various sizes and colors. The current owners did a complete renovation when they purchased the penthouse, going for a sleek modern design in keeping with the look of the building.
The interior of the unit is dominated by glass, white marble, and metal. The kitchen has polished metal countertops, a glass breakfast bar by the windows, and a movable ladder for accessing the top cupboards.
The penthouse also has an expansive rooftop terrace. At around 4,000 square feet it has a kitchen, two dinging areas, and a bridge that leads to a sundeck.
