Architect Rafael Viñoly’s Upper East Side townhouse — with bulletproof glass — is officially for sale.

His firm was enlisted to design the home at 162 East 64th Street in 2015, by Argentinian billionaire Eduardo Eurnekian, 6sqft reported. Though it was previously slated to be his home and U.S. headquarters, it’s now on the market for $50 million.

Compass’ Maria Belen Avellaneda has the listing.

The seven-story building has a glass facade and the windows are bulletproof. The middle floor features a 34-foot floor-to-ceiling window that leads to a terrace. The property also has a landscaped roof deck and museum-quality lighting, according to the listing.

Viñoly is best known for designing the 432 Park Avenue supertall. Earlier this year, the firm signed a new lease for its own headquarters in the Financial District. The company will move to the 36,550-square-foot space at 375 Pearl Street in mid-2019. [6sqft] — Meenal Vamburkar
