An undisclosed buyer has paid $100.5 million ($A122.15 million) for a New York duplex penthouse, shattering the $88 million ($A107.36 million) record set in 2012.
The buyer bought unit 90 in the
One57 building, a 306-metre tall tower, overlooking Central Park.
The luxury apartment, purchase two days before Christmas, spans over the top two levels.
Developers Extell Development Co. had originally marketed the apartment for $98.5 million.
The previous record was set by Citigroup chairman Sanford Weil, when he sold his penthouse at 15 Central Park West for $US88 million.
