(New York, NY) — Dell founder, Micheal Dell, paid a recording breaking $100 million for a N.Y.C One57 penthouse. Although the transaction was made in 2014, The Wall Street Journal recently confirmed that Micheal Dell is behind the record breaking close.
If unfamiliar, One57 houses some of the most expensive condos on the Manhattan market, and is located on what is known as Billionaires Row (I know, a suitable name).
With a view of Central Park to the north, and Midtown to the south it is hard to believe that there are still 57 units in this building that have not yet sold. However, the building has seen some pretty big faces throughout the years. Kolawole Aluko, a Nigerian playboy, who paid for a $50 million condo back in 2014.
Even though Mr. Dell isn’t the only big face One57 has seen, he is certainly one of the priciest. His purchase has been recorded as the most expensive home ever sold in New York City—way to go Micheal!
Dell’s home sweet home consists of 10,923 square feet, six-bedrooms and six-bathrooms, and will be renovated by Mirò Rivera Architects. Though they refused to comment due to a non disclosure agreement, It is known that Juan Mirò resides in Austin where Mr. Dell also has a home.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the contract to buy the unit was devised in 2012 while the building was still under construction, and later purchased through P89-90, LLC. However, Dell’s fancy taste in Real Estate didn’t stop there and just last year entered a contract for a $40 million penthouse in the Four Seasons Private Residences located Boston.
Dell kept his identity hidden for two years, leaving many wondering who the record breaker was. However, Dell is up for a challenge. Rumor has it the record may be broken by a penthouse at 220 Central Park South, which is in the process of closing at around $200 million. We are waiting for your next move, Mr. Dell!
