Socialite Shafi Roepers’ Upper East Side co-op is back on the market for $65 million — with no discount in sight.

The third-floor pad at 4 East 66th Street was listed in late 2015 at the same price for seven months, before being yanked off the market in May 2016.

At approximately 7,000 square feet, the “massively grand and vast” co-op is still asking $9,285 per square foot, according to the listing. That’s in the ballpark of some of the priciest units at new development condos like One57 and 432 Park Avenue, where an $87.7 million condominium traded for over $10,600 square feet last year.

This apartment — far closer to sidewalk level — has five bedrooms and eight bathrooms, and it was renovated by leather-obsessed architect Peter Marino, who has designed stores for retailers like Louis Vuitton and Christian Dior. Maintenance is $17,987 monthly. Serena Boardman at Sotheby’s International Realty has the listing.

The exclusive, J.E.R. Carpenter-designed building has been home to other well-known residents, including the late Alan “Ace” Greenberg, former CEO of Bear Stearns. Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen paid $25 million for the penthouse in 2011, property records show.

In July, Tiger Global Management’s Chase Coleman III picked up the fifth floor of the building for $52 million from Gracie Capital’s Daniel Nir. Coleman and his wife Stephanie already owned two apartments on the sixth floor, which they bought for $36.5 million in 2008.
