The 96th-floor penthouse of the Upper East Side's premier 432 Park Avenue building has just gone on the market for $169 million. [Insert insanely dramatic and physically painful eye roll here]
The current owner, billionaire Saudi real estate developer Fawaz Alhokair, originally bought the six-bedroom, seven-bath pad for $87.7 million in 2016. So yeah, makes total sense that it costs basically double now just five years later in the midst of a seemingly never-ending global pandemic...
While the home boasts a grand amount of space and undeniably beautiful views of Central Park, its interiors are nouveau riche tacky at best, no?
Sterile white walls that make it look like he just moved in, rusty orange drapes that oh so beautifully bring out the mustard puke color of the 70s style shag rug (that they love so much they put in almost every bedroom), the gaudy lineup of not-so-discreet Hermes pillows and throws on the couch, the ugly as fuck piano next to that brassy wall sculpture moment thing - just all of it!
Now, we're not sure if this is how Alhokair has been living in the apartment, or if the listing's broker Ryan Serhant had someone come in and stage it - but either way, dear god is money wasted on the rich!
