Billionaire investor and Pittsburgh Penguins' co-owner Ron Burkle has put his triplex penthouse in NoHo on the market for $37M, and apart from being pretty jaw-dropping, the place has a very colorful history, as Curbed NY noted. When it was still the event space Sky Studios, it hosted Jerry Seinfeld's wedding, a birthday party for Chelsea Clinton, and the shoot for that Sex and the City scene where Richard tries to convince Samantha he actually cares about her.
After purchasing the place in 2007 for $17M, Burkle ebarked on the kind of renovation you'd expect from a billionaire with a taste for historic architecture. Curbed NY has a run-down of the specifics, which include things like a "17th Century Dutch Tudor working fireplace" and a "hand carved backlit onyx bar," as well as a great room with "cast-iron columns, custom wood-coffered and copper-leafed barrel vaulted ceilings."
On the second floor, there's a "glass-encased great room with soaring 17'+ ceilings," which opens out onto a garden with a "sunken fire pit and custom water sculpture." Up one more level, a bathroom with predictably great views connects to a heated outdoor swimming pool and a "yacht-inspired upper sundeck." Together, monthly real estate taxes and maintenance fees are over $11K.
