Done Deals: Penthouse Strategy

Citi Habitats agent John Farrell helped an international client buy Penthouse A at The Twenty 1 condominium at 117 West 21st Street for $8.4 million.

The four-bedroom, 3.5-bath duplex sits on the top two floors of the boutique building of just nine full-floor homes.


“As an investor, my client was in search of a Manhattan property that offered tremendous upside,” Farrell said. “After showing him several different options, it became clear that nothing was going to match the price-per-square-foot value provided by Penthouse A.”

“Best of all, through negotiation and strategic patience, we were able to secure the property for a substantial $1.1 million discount,” Farrell said. “It’s potentially one of the best deals you’ll see all year.”

The next step for Farrell will be to find a renter for this one-of-a-kind trophy property. “With nearly 4,500 s/f. of living space, the home is truly massive – and the private keyed elevator will appeal to a tenant who values the ultimate in privacy,” he explained.

Ryan Serhant of Nest Seekers represented the seller.
