The Walker Tower penthouse that set a downtown Manhattan sales record last year when sold for $50,9 million, has hit the market again, with a price tag of $70 million. That’s a whopping $11,745 per square foot. The penthouse condo encompasses the entire 24th floor, and is directly below the building’s roof garden offering views of the Hudson River, the Manhattan Bridge, and Williamsburg, as well as north to the Empire State building. It features five bedrooms and five full baths and a powder room. Outdoor terraces add an additional 479 square feet of living space.
The Walker Tower penthouse was bought last year by nightclub and restaurant company CEO Neil Moffitt of Hakkasan Group, who has reportedly never lived in the place but has decided to flip it for a nearly $20 million over what he paid.
The Walker Tower Residences, at 212 W. 18th Street in Manhattan, are a renovation of a 1929 Art Deco building that originally served as an office for the New York Telephone Company.
