600 West 58th Street

The Durst Organization, the developer, apparently feels more than comfy on the block between 11th and 12th Avenues, bounded by 57th and 58th Streets. It all started with The Helena, the rental building that opened in 2005. Durst continued next to the Helena with New York City’s very first pyramid—or, as the designer likes to call it, a tetrahedron. It is nearing completion and should open its doors with 709 rental units sometime this year.

Walker Tower Penthouse sold

Once upon a time, everybody wanted their high-rise living rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows that boasted jaw-dropping views as far as the eye can see. Well, those times are over. The mega-luxury towers being built today are being thrust skywards as high as the concrete and steel can carry them, so they’ve got to have more than just living-room views. And the newest must-have amenity is the bathtub view! Admittedly, taking in a skyline view while enjoying the hot, relaxing satisfaction of luxuriating in a bubble bath isn’t something one would turn down.

The very fact that the 47th-floor-apartment belongs to Gisele Bundchen and her husband Tom Brady makes the beautiful views through its floor-to-ceiling windows, the four large bedrooms covering over 3,310 square feet, and the jaw-dropping bathroom all the more stunning. The supermodel/quarterback couple are asking $40,000 a month for the luxury apartment—or $42,500 furnished. The couple bought the suite just a year ago for $14 million.
