Six-and-a-half mil may be incongruous with your average bachelor, but it's still a little surprising it took more than three years to find a buyer for the Pinnacle's exquisite penthouse. Curbed National was the first to surmise a filthy rich bachelor would feel right at home at this exotically-appointed, 6,000-square-foot, 45th-floor pad with twin 1,000-square-foot terraces and four balconies. Regardless of relationship status, congratulations go out to the buyer(s). Originally asking $8.9M, the closing price remains in the stratosphere though the listing agent writes that $6.5M is "well below replacement cost". There are some pricey goods: "exotic woods, rare textiles, 1,500-bottle wine cellar, and state-of-the-art electronics/automation." But then, the $5,200 in monthly assessments have to count against the unit.
