An Upper East Side penthouse that fashion designer Vera Wang once called home is on the rental market for $60,000 per month.

A high-rolling renter could pay the same amount of money on a three-bedroom, 3,000-square-foot pad at Vornado Realty Trust’s 220 Central Park South, a penthouse at 61 Fifth Avenue in Greenwich Village, or a three-bedroom apartment on the 54th floor of One57.

Wang lived lived at the penthouse at 35 East 63rd Street between 2015 and 2017 while she waited for renovations to be completed on her Park Avenue apartment, the New York Post reported.

The 6,312 square-foot penthouse has five bedrooms, eight bathrooms and 4,000 square feet of outdoor space, according to StreetEasy. It was listed for $65,000 per month in May.

The Sackler family—whose company, Purdue Pharma, aggressively marketed OxyContin despite warnings it was addictive—expressed interest in the property last year, the Post reported, citing sources. However publicity around the company and its association with the opioid crisis became so intensive the family were “run out of town,” the Post reported.
