New York City's newest priciest rental is the entire 39th floor of the Upper East Side's Pierre Hotel, a $500K-a-month offering that's just perfect for that indiscriminate billionaire not quite ready to commit $90M to buy a place outright. The apartment—in the very same building as Martin Zweig's penthouse, which roared onto the market for $125M last year—is on the market for the first time ever. According to the listing agent, this six-bedroom apartment (which includes a Presidential Suite that can be rented separately for $400K a month) will meet a "strong unmet demand" for flexibility in full-service buildings—that is, dedicated butler service and a chauffeur-driven Jaguar even for temporary stays. Inside, the 4,786-square-foot space has the sort of bland luxury aesthetic with the usual Central Park views, cold Victorian leather sofa, and all that—yup, definitely a rental.
