The most expensive apartment ever sold in downtown Manhattan is back on the market

For a mere $70 million.

IF YOU’RE LOOKING to invest in a penthouse apartment in downtown Manhattan, now is your chance.

For a mere $70 million, you could be the next owner of Walker Tower’s Penthouse One, located at 212 West 18th Street in Chelsea.

With views of the Empire State Building, Freedom Tower, and all of Manhattan, this penthouse is the ultimate accessory to a jet-setting billionaire lifestyle.

Fancy a tour? Of course you do.

The current owner, Hakkasan CEO Neil Moffitt, bought the penthouse in early 2014 for $50.9 million. It only took him five minutes to decide he wanted the place.
