Probably another Russian "Stepford Wife" who just heard that Putin was going to imprison her husband for having stolen the Electric Company.

Yep, saw it this morning on the news. The building isn't even completed yet. No one knows who purchased it? That's silly...they're just not revealing it. If they didn't know who purchased it then how did they know it was sold? Hmmm?? And just what the city needs-more overpaid real estate with condos. As if the city wasn't crowded enough?

Maybe if everyone moves to these new towers that are going out, it will cause the "luxury" ones now to lower their prices in rent. Places like Vangard in CHelsea on 24th or 25th will have rents go from 3500 to 2000..then I can move there 8-)...I know I know wishful thinking haha

The article specifically states that the buyer is not from any part of the former Soviet Union.

Someone who has waaaaaaaay too much money to spend. The building isn't even completed. Imagine what it'll be worth AFTER it's finished, furnished and all the appliances, bath/shower, etc are put in.

Nowadays most luxury buildings have 3d rendering prior to even starting a project.
If it's so high end it's not far-fetched to think that they constructed a virtual tour of the premises.
And maybe they even added clause to the contract that requires the unit to be exactly as shown on the virtual tour.

I agree it's crazy to spend that much money without phisically seeing a place, but for some people 90 mil is a drop of water in a 10 gallon bucket.
