When the $100 million contract on a 41-foot-wide, 20,500-square-foot mansion on Manhattan’s Upper East Side closes in April, New York City will have a new price record for a townhouse sale.
Purchased by the Qatar government to house its New York City consulate, the building, located a block east of Central Park, had never changed hands before, according to the jet-setting agent brothers Oren and Tal Alexander of Douglas Elliman, who are ushering the deal to completion.
The townhouse’s pristine upkeep and “turnkey” status helped secure the record contract, the Alexander brothers told the New York Post.
“Qatar plans to use the consulate as a place to showcase their own artists,” an unnamed source told the Post.
