Iconic Manhattan ‘Succession’ apartment hits the market

The sale of a full-floor apartment in Manhattan, located on the 44th floor of a prestigious Upper East Side condo tower at 180 East 88th Street, is generating significant interest.

This 373sq m residence, known as Residence 44, is on the market for US$14.85 million and is notable for its appearance in the HBO series Succession, as the home of tech billionaire character Lukas Matsson.

Listing agent Crista Villella, of Corcoran Sunshine, highlighted the apartment’s exceptional features to Manson Global.

“It’s an expansive and beautifully designed home with 14-foot ceilings and 360-degree views (encompassing Central Park, the East River, the Empire State Building, and extending to New Jersey),” she said.

She also emphasised the unique design elements, saying, “The building embraces a level of design like nothing else on the Upper East Side”.

The apartment boasts a range of architectural and design details, including direct elevator access, a private entry gallery with coved ceilings and custom plaster wainscoting, Austrian white oak flooring, and Albertini Italian windows.

The residence currently serves as a design showroom curated by Radnor.

Ms Villella described the building as the tallest residential tower on the Upper East Side above 72nd Street and noted its extensive amenities, including a fitness studio, a double-height basketball court, a soccer pitch, and additional leisure facilities.

“To have eight floors of amenities is unheard of,” she said.

The layout of the apartment includes a large formal living and dining area facing Central Park, creating an ideal space for entertainment.

The kitchen is equipped with high-end appliances and features, and the bedrooms are situated in a separate wing, with the primary bedroom offering luxurious details such as radiant-heat flooring and silver travertine slabs.

The building’s location is advantageous, being in proximity to Central Park, the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir, and several renowned museums.

The property, offering both luxury and exclusivity, is a standout in the Manhattan real estate market.
