Multiple fireplaces, a vast library constructed from wood of a single walnut tree, servants quarters, 10,000 square feet indoors, multiple terraces… just an average home for Wall Street execs.We’ve picked out 15 of the most expensive banker homes in Manhattan.
The founder of Exile Capital Management bought the top floor at Downtown by Philippe Stack in 2007 (the development includes the old JP Morgan building -- front -- and the 15 Broad Street tower -- back). The penthouse includes 6,300 square feet of living space plus three terraces. We expect Sender has filled it with his vast contemporary art collection and lots of computer monitors.
The CEO of JP Morgan combined a $4.9 million apartment with another he already owned. We assuming his spread cost around $10 million in 2004 -- and more today. One unique feature is a sound-proofed area where Jamie listens to Frank Sinatra at full volume.
