  • confusious

    Can someone explain to me how this entire building is 53 million and the penthouse at Faena is 60 million? How much did it cost to build?

  • whatt

    how is this entire building only 53 million, it cost only 25 to build ??? its either the buyers are paying the other half in cash under the table or the developer is under water with the bank in construction

    It doesn’t include the land the building sits on. That price is only for the edifice itself, it will have to make monthly rent payments to the owner of the dirt.
