Maybe. Hope he was! Tax and fees through the roof! But when you're spending over $40MM, what's a bit more?

We should all bow down to scissor stairs being permitted, without which billionaires would be out a bathroom or two on average!

If we all on SSP pitch in, we can all buy the unit, and make it the SSP party lounge where its just raunchy parties (think Wolf of Wall Street).

If just 1000 members pitch a measly $42,500, it could happen. Any sort of expenses like maintenance fees or building fees could be divided.

We than go to Keyworld, and make 1000 copies of the door key.

We can allow 83 members which go on a list per month (X names per X month out of 12 months) access to it for 1 month out of the year. If all is well after 12 months, everyone of the 1000 contributors can live at Verre.

There must be some properties of the same type over Manhattan that even go beyond $50M. The price of an entire larger mansion with a yard in Central Paris.
I saw a French documentary about this on Youtube a little while ago. The furniture they put in there is actually even pricier than the apartments themselves.
Lol, they own pieces of art, paintings and sculptures whose values are exorbitant, such as prestige things sold on auction at Sotheby's.

These products wouldn't be just places to live, but rather subjects of speculation. I heard that often, billionaires and monarchs purchasing them hardly ever set foot in there.
It's only part of their strategy to manage their fortunes or the assets of their countries when it comes to old monarchies like Qatar and such.

I'm just wondering how helpful it can be to the economy, which is meant to serve the people, not the other way around.
Of course, developing high-end luxury products is absolutely necessary for innovation, but when you get to this point, it might only be megalomania or the symptom of a neurosis of some kind.
I don't know, I'm only asking.

Not the kind of guy to blame on the rich or anyone in particular anyway, but at this point, it seems they should seriously question themselves about their social meaning, responsibilities and duties.
Otherwise, savage Marxism and related violent materialist ideologies might well rise again over our socities.
That'd be good for no one, and certainly not for them anyway.

I get that on my iPhone.
And *horrors!* there is no door completely sealing off the kitchen and it's horrible sights, sounds, and odors from the living area! A guest might actually *gasp* SEE some of the kitchen while cooking is occurring! I know someone on here who would be absolutely appalled!!!!


*the building is looking great and I love the change in colors as it nears it's peaks. If only I had several hundred million dollars. *sigh*

I know it has been covered here a thousand times and the building is still amazing, but man that height chop sucks! From the farther distances, the 57th area, 432, and eventually 1 Vandy will all dwarf this beauty. Again, don't mean to beat a dead horse or complain when most cities are never getting an architectural marvel at 1,050 ft, but that peak with the color change higher above the plateau would have been amazing.

That said, it is still one of the best designs by far in the city!

re last pic:

It looks as if the final tower height will be where the jib/counterweight juncture is located.

Then there's a little bit left for the setback for the IIRC the "golden" side before the apex.

This tower will be the Gem of the city in terms of recent skyscraper construction.
The ESB and One Vanderbilt will have the height advantage and sheer-mass but Tower Verre along with the Chrysler Building will be the pinnacle of excellence in Midtown.

P.S. I also have high hopes for 9 Dekalb in Brooklyn.

Good luck getting everybody on board with the $43 grand.
A couple of units are only 10 million without the park view but we would have access to the facilities in the building. Maybe we could afford that.
