Aman’s latest “island destination”—Manhattan—has a way to go before it opens (it’s scheduled to open its doors in 2020) but if the over-the-top penthouse residences above the hotel are a sign of things to come, we’re jazzed.

A buyer has entered contract to purchase the five-story penthouse at the Crown Building for $180 million, according to The Real Deal. If the deal is finalized, it would become the most expensive home in New York City, surpassing a $100.5 million penthouse sold in 2014. At $14,358 per foot, the price would also set a new record on a per-foot basis.

Sitting atop 730 Fifth Avenue, the 12,536-square-foot residence is one of 20 Aman-branded private residences being developed by Russian billionaire Vladislav Doronin at 730 Fifth Avenue. (Doronin also owns the 83-key Aman hotel on the floors below.)
