"The buyers of the nine full-floor apartments near the top that have sold so far — among them two duplexes under contract for more than $90 million each — are all billionaires," Gary Barnett, the president of the Extell Development Company, the building’s developer, told the Times. "The other seven apartments ranged in price from $45 million to $50 million."
The list includes several Americans, a Canadian, a Nigerian, a Briton and at least two Chinese buyers, according to Mr. Barnett and brokers who have sold apartments in the building.
