Dell Technologies founder and CEO Michael Dell has been revealed as the buyer behind the $100.47 million purchase of a penthouse on Manhattan’s Billionaire’s Row.
It all computes: by buying the apartment, Dell set a record for the most expensive home ever sold in New York City. Located at One57, a more than 1,000-foot-tall glass tower on West 57th Street, the duplex apartment has a total of 10,923 square feet with six bedrooms and six bathrooms and is on the 89th and 90th floors. It also has two powder rooms, a steam room, and 23-foot floor-to-ceiling windows. Dell will also have access to a pool, theater, gym and library. The computer titan tapped Miró Rivera Architects to spearhead a renovation of the property, according to The Wall Street Journal.
The deal for the apartment closed in 2014, but the buyer’s identity had been kept secret until this week. Though the transaction set a record, the sale only cost Dell about 0.4 percent of his fortune. Forbes writes the Austin-based CEO’s net worth is over 23.3 billion.
