A New York City penthouse that spans five floors and sits just a block from the Empire State Building has hit the market for $US98 million.

Called “Le Penthouse,” the midtown Manhattan condo has 19,000 square feet of interior space and about 4,500 square feet of outdoor space.

“To my knowledge, ‘Le Penthouse’ at 172 Madison Avenue is the most expensive home for sale in the current NYC market,” the listing agent Raphael Sitruk of Keller Williams NYC told Business Insider.

The condo comes as a “white box” without any finishings or appliances so that the buyer can customise everything to his or her tastes, according to Sitruk.

“It’s like having an infinite white canvas and designing the unique apartment you’re dreaming about,” Sitruk said.

While Curbed New York reported that the apartment is New York City’s second most expensive listing, Business Insider cross-checked the listing across sites such as Zillow, Trulia, and StreetEasy, and was not able to find any other listings that exceeded Le Penthouse’s $US98 million price tag. The real-estate appraiser and market analyst Jonathan Miller confirmed it’s the most expensive active listing in the city.

Here’s a look inside the most expensive listing in New York City.

According to the listing agent, the condo’s sky-high price tag is justified because of its “super-central location,” the 360-degree views, and the private roof deck. “This space is unique and never seen anywhere before,” Sitruk told Business Insider.
