If you are at the helm of power at Qatar, how would you celebrate that wealth? By splurging of course, and you need to be Sheik Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber al-Thani to do it in style. The prime minister of Qatar has been rumored to be eager to spend a $100 million to pick up the city’s most expensive penthouse. The luxurious home features an ultra-luxe, two-story pad that sits on top of the under-construction One57 condominium.
Apart from the 10,923-square-foot pad, the PM also talked about picking up a cluster of four separate, full-floor condos in the 90-story One57 building, at 157 W. 57th St. This entire purchase will cost around $250 million. The penthouse sports a “grand salon,” a large mezzanine, four fireplaces, floor-to-ceiling windows, at least five bedrooms, and motorized window shades.
Considering his family of two wives and 15 children, plus the security troops has see several co-op boards seeing red. Since he enjoys diplomatic immunity, the building can’t do much to serve legal notice to get dues cleared. With the amount at stake, any one would think twice I say! Since its just a rumor for now, better take it with a pinch of salt.
