Rupert Murdoch’s penthouse on sale for $72 million
Rupert Murdoch is putting his three-storey New York apartment on the market for $72 million.
Media executive Rupert Murdoch is listing his penthouse in Manhattan’s One Madison for $72 million, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Consisting of floors 58 through 60, the triplex is roughly 6,850 square feet. Purchased as raw space and currently under construction, it has a wraparound terrace and views of the Hudson and East rivers, the Empire State Building and the World Trade Center.
In February of last year, Mr. Murdoch paid $57.25 million for the penthouse and a three-bedroom apartment on the 57th floor of the Madison Square Park condo building. He hired architect Jose Ramirez to build out the penthouse and moved into the 57th floor unit, which he intended to use as a guest apartment when the penthouse was completed.
Mr. Murdoch is keeping the 57th floor apartment for now, but has decided to move to a downtown townhouse, his spokesman said.
The One Madison penthouse will be listed with Dolly Lenz of Dolly Lenz Real Estate.
