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.)
According to the amended offering plan, a 1,150-square-foot one-bedroom is asking $5.9 million; a three-bedroom with 4,384 square feet is priced at $26.6 million, and a 6,287-square-foot four-bedroom will ask $58.3 million. The penthouse features a piano lounge and gallery, game room, two kitchens, a wraparound terrace and two swimming pools. Each of the residences will be fully serviced by Aman.
In addition to the 83 guestrooms and 20 residences, the hotel will have three dining venues, a comprehensive spa, and an Aman Member’s Club.
