Stephen Ross once credited himself as being one of two New Yorkers who lives and works in the same building, the second being now President Donald Trump.

As the Related boss and Miami Dolphins co-owner trades up, taking a penthouse unit at the company’s Skidmore Owings & Merrill-designed 35 Hudson Yards, he will retain that accolade (his development firm bought an office condo next door, at 30 Hudson Yards).

But first, he’s letting go of the 8,500-square-foot aerie he owns with his wife, jewelry designer Kara Ross, in another Related-developed building, the Time Warner Center. The couple put the Central Park penthouse on the market, asking $75 million, as the Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday.

From a quick scan of Ross’ residential holdings, it’s clear he has a penchant for getting high on his own supply. Below is a quick rundown of some of his other residential properties. Ross could not be reached for comment.
