One of the first structures to be called a skyscraper, the century-old 15 Park Row is opening up to the residential market with a $20 million penthouse apartment on the top floor.
Despite the Financial District spot’s sprawl over two full floors, along with two three-story cupolas above, a private terrace and two balconies, the digs have a long way to go before they are inhabitable. In need of a total gut renovation, the unit will also require $8,345 in common charges per month.
Built by August Belmont in 1899, the building was the world’s tallest at the time. Belmont’s Interborough Rapid Transit Company and the Associated Press’s first offices once called the historic property home.
