Real estate in Manhattan is known for its hefty price tags, but an anonymous buyer has set a new a near-nine-figure record. The person is paying more than $90 million for a duplex penthouse in Midtown. The apartment is nearly 11,000 square feet and is located on the 89th and 90th floors of the building, named One57, which is planned to be build just shy of the south end of Central Park. For those keeping track, that’s about $13,000 per square foot—another record. The previous record was $88 million the daughter of a Russian billionaire shelled out for a penthouse at nearby 15 Central Park West, purchased earlier this year.
