Former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer’s apartment on the Upper East Side has hit the market for $20,500 a month.

The three-bedroom unit at 800 Fifth Avenue just recently became available, according to the New York Post. It is ready for a December move-in, and amenities include a concierge, a parking garage and a gym, according to its listing on StreetEasy.

Once owned by Standard Oil treasurer Jabez Bostwick, and later, by a Rockefeller – the mansion at 800 Fifth Ave. sat vacant for more than 50 years until Spitzer’s father Bernard demolished it and built a luxury rental tower at the address in the late 1970s.

An analysis by The Real Deal in June 2016 found that the building’s 208 apartments leased for an average of $10,500 a month. The building, still owned by Spitzer Enterprises, also holds a few medical suites. There are four other apartments in the building currently on the rental market for over $10,000, according to StreetEasy.

Spitzer is currently building a $700 million, 857-unit rental complex along the Williamsburg waterfront. The first building is slated to launch next year, with Dave Maundrell of Citi Habitats leading the marketing effort.  [NYP]Eddie Small
