A buyer who dropped $47.8 million all cash in 2015 for a full-floor apartment in One57, a towering condominium on Manhattan’s Billionaire’s Row, has relisted the unit for $52 million.
The owner, listed in property records under the shell company Unit 58A Acquisition Corp., went into contract on the 77th-floor condo, with four bedrooms and five-and-a-half bathrooms, in 2012, two years before the building opened its doors to residents, according to property records.
The buyer from Europe, who closed on the unit in 2015 after undertaking some custom upgrades, intended to use it as a pied-a-terre, The New York Times previously reported.
The unit hit the market on Wednesday with Robert Dvorin of Douglas Elliman for $4.2 million more than it last sold for, according to the listing.
The new listing offers a peek inside the mystery owner’s opulent Manhattan crash pad. The 1,500-square-foot great room is walled with windows looking over the top of Central Park and beyond. The sparse furnishings include contemporary sculptures, a mixture of plush and mid-century modern seating and a sculptural metal loveseat, listing photos show.
The owner’s custom upgrades include a Creston home automation system with audio and video, and motorized shades, said Mr. Dvorin, who brokered the last sale of the unit. The owner also commissioned and imported custom millwork and closets with mother of pearl inlays from craftsmen in the U.K., he said.
“It’s pretty over the top,” Mr. Dvorin said, adding that the location directly over Central Park “makes it really special.”
The apartment also has Brazilian rosewood floors and Miele and Subzero kitchen appliances. The master bedroom has dual bathrooms with a steam shower and bidet, according to the listing.
A lawyer who represented the owner in the sale did not return a request for comment.
