The sale is the building’s highest closing price to date, according to city records spotted by the New York Observer. A 9,000-square-foot combination apartment at the tower that appears to be in contract was last listed for $50 million but is yet to close, according to the paper.

Sales at the building are being handled by Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group, as The Real Deal reported.  [NYO]Hiten Samtani
