What does a nearly 11,000-square-foot, two-story luxury penthouse suite in NYC cost a person? Oh, just an easy $100 million. We’ll give you a second to lift your jaw off the floor. Yes, that $100 million apartment — which is roughly four times bigger than the average house in the United States — has officially been purchased by an undisclosed buyer. We’ll just call him Richie Rich.
The extravagant home includes a steam room, a theater, a personal library, sweeping views, and, of course, plenty of floor space. The kind of floor space that costs $9,000 per square foot. Refinery29 has pictures of the apartment, so feel free to check it out in the comfort of your subpar living quarters.
