    Does anyone know what's up with this tower?

    It's been near completion for like 3 years.

    About two months ago i was looking into it from across the street. Some of the apartments were furnished (demo units?), and it looked like it was about ready for people to start living there.

    Quintessential Midtown Penthouse on the Market for $13 Million

    by Jeremiah Budin




    (click to enlarge)

    Remember this morning's glassy, modern penthouse that had some impressive listing photos but no floorplan? This place is a lot like that place, but way more expensive. The 45th floor penthouse in Park Avenue Place, a 2005 condo tower designed by architects Kohn Pedersen Fox, was listed a couple days ago for $12,950,000, which comes out to a hefty $4,389 per square foot (or, alternately, around $4.3 million per crazy extravagant chandelier—there are three.) Basically, this place has everything you'd want from a (fairly) newly constructed Midtown penthouse: 21.5 foot ceilings, windows on top of windows on top of windows, a fish tank cabinet, and fully automated lights and electronics. And, possibly as a bonus since it's kind of difficult to picture the owner of this place doing a whole lot of cooking, a very spacious kitchen. City records show that the apartment sold in 2008 for $8.7 million, although those records list it as #PH3 while this listing has it as #PH3AB, so it's possible that something has been added.

    Listing: 60 East 55th Street #PH3AB [Elliman]
