Major sale alert! The top four floors of Related’s One Madison have gone into contract for $57.25 million.
The space atop the 60-story development measures 10,160 square feet and encompasses two residences — the triplex penthouse and the full-floor unit directly below. The Wall Street Journal names the buyer, represented by Dolly Lenz, as media mogul Rupert Murdoch. The sale is expected to close this week
Let’s break down the purchase: the tri-level pad from the 58th to 60th floors was first unveiled in September 2013 with an asking price of $50 million. It was sold in raw condition, with 6,850 square feet of interior space, a double-height great room with floor-to-ceiling windows and a wraparound terrace. The second part of the luxury package is a finished three-bedroom residence.
The entire development is over 75 percent sold, according to building reps. However, there are still grandiose apartments available, such as a 6,620-square-foot duplex on floors 55 and 56. That four-bedroom residence has direct elevator access into a private entry gallery; the lower floor has a great room, eat-in kitchen with adjacent formal dining room, corner media room and library. The 56th floor has a master suite with sitting area, dressing area and walk-in closet; a corner master bath with soaking tub and windowed steam shower and an open-plan study.
Also, two “unique residences” located above the building’s 22nd Street entrance are slated to hit the market this spring.
