Such a turnover could render it the priciest attempted flip of a condo unit ever, according to New York Times. Ackman said he acquired the 13,500-square-foot duplex with his friends for “fun.”

The apartment on the 75th and 76th floors features a two-story-high, 51-foot-wide glass enclosed “winter garden” with a curved glass roof, as previously reported. Extell Development recently reeled in $79 million for a pair of One57 units, as The Real Deal reported. [NYT]Mark Maurer
