    Is that the "poor door" in the middle without an awning for the people who can only afford apartments of 5 million dolars or less?

    You need to get an employer to pay for it. I can't wait for it to be on the approved list for my wife to stay at.

    In the booming housing market days I attended an AIG wall street conference at the Time Warner Center. Per Se was privately rented out for us, everything on the menu cycling in and out of the kitchen with open bar anything you wanted. The AIG people were going around asking everyone if they wanted a room at the Mandarin that night. If you answered that you lived in NYC, they would just follow with, "is that a no?"

    Investor flips first unit at exclusive 57th St. tower to make $3.5M profit in five months

    Hedge fund manager Harvey Sandler and his wife Phyllis are the buyers of the unit: sources

    NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

    The tower has become a symbol of billionaire’s row

    An investor has flipped the first unit at Manhattan's most exclusive residential tower for big profits.
    Hedge fund manager Harvey Sandler and his wife Phyllis paid $34 million to buy the first resale condo at One57, the city's hottest new condo project at 157 West 57th St., sources told the Daily News.
    The former owner, Sso Enterprises, paid just $30.55 million for the unit in May, meaning it netted a more than $3 million profit in just five months.

    The 58th-floor, three-bedroom home was originally listed for a whopping $40 million but faced competition from remaining developer-owned units at the building. Buyers at the tower include billionaire investment mogul Bill Ackman.
    The 4,483-square-foot apartment has a windowed eat-in kitchen, top-of-the-line appliances, marble bathrooms and views stretching from Central Park to the Hudson River. Residents also have access to a health club with a pool and a spa, a five-star restaurant, a library, a screening room and attended parking.

    Listing broker Noble Black of the Corcoran Group was not immediately available for comment.
    The Sandlers, who are best known for donating millions of dollars to Florida hospitals, were represented by Daniel Messing, David Benmen and Ben Benalloul of RLTY NYC. The brokers declined to comment or confirm the identity of their client.

    The deal comes as sponsor sales have slowed at the 94-unit billionaire’s row building, built by Extell Development. This time last year, the building was was 70% sold. Now, it's just above 75%.

    The reason: The well-to-do are spoilt for choice. They'll soon be able to snag apartments in the ultra-skinny, 1,350-foot hotel and a condominium glass tower at 111 W. 57th St. and a 950-foot limestone tower at 220 Central Park South.

    I was reading over the amenities for one 57 and residents also get a "discreet entry" on 58th street so you can take your hookers through the back door and avoid awkward run-ins with the doorman while your wife is in St. Barts

    Wow. The rich getting richer...


    First One57 Flip Nets $3.5 Million Five Months After Sale

    by Jeremiah Budin



    The first of the glass-walled money pits in luxury condo tower One57 to be resold just netted its original buyer a $3.45 million profit a mere five months after he/she/they purchased it, the Daily News reports. Investor Sso Enterprises paid $30.55 million for the 58th-floor three-bedroom back in May and just flipped it to hedge fund manager Harvey Sandler, who paid $34 million.

    Other units in the building have been listed for resale previously, including a one-bedroom on the 39th floor and a 62nd-floor three-bedroom, and at one time it looked like we were going to see a whole spate of these things, a la 15 Central Park West. However, as of late, sales have slowed in the building as One57 now faces competition from other superluxury towers catering to the types of people who want to pay tens of millions of dollars to live in Midtown.

    Well then you have to have a "discreet" elevator. Maybe the service elevator?

    As for the investor, good for them. May as well be smart and take advantage while you can.

    Or in Yekaterinburg or Kunming, probably more likely.

    Ugh, I didn't realize it was pixelated on the east side as well.
