Dell Technologies founder and CEO Michael Dell has been sitting on a New York record for almost four years.
A $100 million record. Well, $100.47 million, to be exact.
It was revealed Thursday in the Wall Street Journal that Dell was the buyer of a $100.47 million penthouse on Manhattan’s Billionaire’s Row, according to two people who spoke to the Journal. The information was kept under wraps until the WSJ broke the story.
That deal makes Dell the owner of the first and only New York apartment that carries a price tag of more than $100 million.
The penthouse is located in One57, which is a more than 1,000-foot tall glass tower located on West 57th Street just a few blocks away from Central Park and the Museum of Modern Art.
The 10,923 square feet penthouse has six bedrooms and six bathrooms, as well as access to the Park Hyatt Hotel, which shares building space with One57.
Dell, who was worth more than $23 billion at the start of the year, according to Forbes, paid close to $9,000 per square foot for the penthouse.
To put that in perspective, the cost of this NYC penthouse is the rough equivalent of Dell buying “The Castle,” his 33,000-square-foot Austin mansion, three times over in today’s dollars— it was assessed at $22.5 million by city appraisers when it was built in 1997.
