If you're wondering what kind of perks come with an $85 million apartment, I understand—that's a hefty price tag, even in the mind-bogglingly pricey real estate market of Manhattan. But, one uber-luxury unit in the Big Apple is pushing the boundaries with its amenities, offering the likes of a house in the Hamptons, two Rolls-Royces and a Lambroghini, a private chef, and even a trip to space as part of its price tag.
Yes, you heard that right: New York broker Daniel Neiditch will see your first-class gyms and verdant rooftops and raise you a spaceflight. It's all part of the appeal of his latest listing, a 24,000-square-foot apartment at 635 West 42nd Street, near the buzzworthy Hudson Yards.
In a story that transcends real estate news to become a comment on the .000001% in New York, Neiditch tells The New York Times that offering such over-the-top amenities “give[s] them the basis of a New Yorker’s lifestyle." Which, apparently, means two tickets on a flight to space, as well as "two Rolls-Royces and a Lamborghini; a yacht with docking fees for five years; season tickets to Nets home games; dinner once a week at the two-Michelin-star restaurant Daniel; a private chef for a year; a butler; and a $2 million construction allowance for renovations."
And I thought the roof deck on my Park Slope apartment was a selling point!
"Mr. Neiditch said he is not just selling an apartment; he is selling an immersive experience, even if many luxury apartments are pieds-à-terre that go empty while their owners are gallivanting where the ultrawealthy gallivant," The Times reports.
Looking to really be shocked? Consider that the apartment is only number 3 on Curbed's list of the most expensive NYC apartments—hardly a surprise when you recall January's record sale of $238 million for one penthouse. Better start saving, kids.
