Report: Listing for $85M Penthouse That Comes With a Trip to Space Is Pulled And It's Not Because Someone Bought It

It sounded too good to be true when it was first publicized last year: buy an $85 million Manhattan penthouse condo, and you'll get two Rolls Royces and a trip to space as perks. Now it might've been just wishful thinking.

The New York Post reported that the aforementioned apartment at the Atelier on West 42nd Street was taken off the market by its owner, broker Daniel Neiditch.

As reported in 2018, the listing described the penthouse as a 15,000-square-foot duplex. In addition to the Rolls Royces and a pair of seats for a Virgin Galactic space trip, other incentives that came with the apartment include season tickets to Brooklyn Nets games; a butler; and weekly dinners at chef Daniel Boulud's Manhattan restaurant. The offer seemed so out-of-the-box that it was mentioned in The New York Times last month.

But now plans for the penthouse's sale appear to have been scuttled. According to the Post, the penthouse is actually made up of 12 separate and occupied apartments. The paper alleged, citing real estate experts, that the listing on StreetEasy was intended to draw buyers' attention to the Atelier's “lesser units” and enhance the building's stature.

Curbed reported that the listing had not appeared on StreetEasy for the last couple of days.
