Who doesn't love a good rooftop pool? Here's the latest from Curbed NY...
1) Midtown East: Five listings from the as-of-yet-unbuilt superscraper 432 Park have been released onto the market. The cheapest, a 2BR/3.5BA on the 42nd floor is asking $17.4 million, while the most expensive, a full-floor 87th-floor penthouse is going for $74.5 million. Sounds about right.
2) Greenwich Village: An 11,000-square-foot modern six-story mansion on Waverly Place just hit the market for $34 million. It was converted from an apartment building to a single-family townhouse by architect Dirk Denison and now includes a rooftop swimming pool and hot tub.
3) Market Reports: Manhattan rents have been pretty much holding steady since last summer as Brooklyn rents continue to climb, which means that the current spread between the median rents in the two priciest boroughs, at $210, is the lowest our expert has ever seen it. Could Brooklyn ever be more expensive to rent in that Manhattan? Looks like we're going to find out.
4) Upper East Side: Billionaire fertilizer tycoon Alexander Rovt has had no luck selling his insanely opulent East 63rd Street mansion for $22 million, so now he's listed it for $25 million and offered to throw in a Rolls Royce Phantom as part of the deal. The reasoning behind this, according to the broker, is "To diversify our marketing strategy and take advantage of the private garage that comes with the house."
