Let me just start by saying that I can’t believe there are people would would pay $40,000 to $60,000 a month for a rental. It better have at least two bathrooms and
good great closets. Here’s how Crain’s New York Business framed their poll:
At New York by Gehry, the downtown skyscraper designed by the famed architect Frank Gehry, penthouse apartments on the 76th floor will hit the market for $40,000 to $60,000—a month. These rental apartments, 850 feet above lower Manhattan, provide sweeping views that include all five East River bridges connecting with Manhattan and even the Atlantic Ocean beyond Brooklyn. Still, a year’s rent at $40,000 would come to $480,000, more than enough for a healthy down payment on a co-op or condo with a decent view and maybe even a patio.
The results of their poll are in. 15 people say they would consider paying that kind of rent out of a total of 126 respondents to the poll in Crain’s New York Business.
Oh, and the penthouse renters don’t get any extra amenities despite paying thousands more per month than their lower-floor neighbors. On the plus side, the concierge already “has entertained—and fulfilled—requests for everything from hiring Cirque du Soleil performers for a private dinner party to chartering a private plane for a lobster-tasting,” so what more could a renter want?
