Plans for a two-story penthouse at the new Pacifica Towers in New Zealand have been unveiled in advance of its arrival on the market, with an asking price of NZ$35 million (US$24.2 million).
The “super penthouse” will encompass the 53rd and 54th floors of the 584-foot tower, its top two levels. In total, the home will be about 12,787 square feet, according to Gavin Lloyd, the national director of residential projects at CBRE.
It’s the largest and most expensive penthouse in New Zealand, according to CBRE, which is handling sales. Mansion Global could not independently confirm those assertions.
Although sales have been robust at the tower, “the super penthouse at the top of the building has been held off the market whilst we completed the design,” Mr. Lloyd said via email.
While the penthouse plans were unveiled Friday, it will officially hit the market in the next few weeks. However, Mr. Lloyd said “people ‘in the know’ have expressed early interest.”
The residence will have four bedrooms, plus a private guest suite. There are several reception areas, including a formal lounge, a library, a media room and a fitness center with a spa, sauna and steam room, according to CBRE. The chef’s kitchen boasts a butler’s kitchen and a breakfast nook, and there’s a wine cellar and tasting room.
The home also has a “sky garden,” which has double-height ceilings and gallery space.
“It is like the old conservatory — literally a garden in the sky that allows the new owners to bring some of New Zealand’s beautiful nature indoors,” Mr. Lloyd wrote. “The gallery space on the upper level allows the new owners an area to showcase their art collection.”
The view from the penthouse is also one of its most important attributes, and residents will be able to see as far as the Great Barrier Island in the Hauraki Gulf, as well as the edge of the Waitematā Harbour. Floor-to-ceiling windows maximize the opportunities to take it all in.
Building amenities include a lap pool, residents’ lounge, library and barbecue terrace. Several smaller penthouses have already sold for between NZ$4.48 million (US$3.1 million) and NZ$5.27 million (US$3.7 million), according to CBRE. Those “sky homes,” on the 50th and 51st floors, range from 2,045-square-foot two bedrooms to 2,529-square-foot three bedrooms.
The tower will also feature a five-star hotel on the first six floors, and the eventual operator could manage stays at the super penthouse, CBRE said.
Construction on the tower began in November and is set to be completed by the end of 2020. Hengyi, based in Melbourne, Australia, is the developer.
