And suddenly, those fancy $100 million apartments on 57th Street look positively quaint. Because BOOM, whoever gets the penthouse apartment in the now-officially-going-residential Woolworth Building clearly wins at New York real estate. Hands down.

After years of rumor and speculation, the Witkoff Group and Cammeby have sold the top 30 floors of the iconic tower to an investment group led by Alchemy Properties with the intention that they will turn it into apartments (the lower 28 floors will be leased as office space). And oh, sweet Peter Stuyvesant, we want to go to there:

Penthouses in the building once called the “Cathedral of Commerce” will be among the highest-altitude residences in the city, soaring above 700 feet. A five-level penthouse of around 8,000 square feet will be housed in the copper-clad cupola that tops out at 792 feet. Originally designed as a public observation area, the cupola has a wraparound outdoor deck reached by a private elevator.

Apartments will begin at 350 feet above ground level, with panoramic views and 11'-14' ceiling heights, when they are completed (in theory by 2015). Oh and that is not all. The $150 million conversion (which includes the $68 million purchase price) will also include restoring the 55-foot-long basement swimming pool for the residents. And, and, and... ugh, anybody want to go halfsies—or, more realistically, fiftysies? We could handle going SRO in that building—on one of those apartments with us? They are estimated to go for only about $3,000 per square foot.
