NEW YORK — 3rd floor of a Queens apartment building that sold for more than $9 million Tuesday was a one-bedroom unit with a view of the Hudson River.
The building, on the first floor of an apartment complex near the Tribeca waterfront, is owned by the family of Queens borough president Ruben Diaz, and the price tag for the unit, with its large balcony, included the cost of renovations to the building, according to an announcement by the Real Estate Board of New York.
The listing price of the unit was $8.25 million.
It is the largest price ever paid for a single unit at an apartment building, said R. Daniel Sperling, an agent with the Manhattan-based brokerage firm of Sperler & Associates.
The other two priciest properties were $7.5 million and $6.4 million.
The buyer is not known, Sperl said.
The building on West 58th Street, one block east of the Tribes Center and across from the offices of the New York Times, was built in 1964 and has six units on the ground floor and a fourth floor, according the real estate board.
The unit had two bathrooms, a large kitchenette, and a two-car garage, the listing said.
The apartment is on the seventh floor, about 20 feet above ground level.
The unit’s first floor has a fireplace, a walk-in pantry and an outdoor kitchenette.
The listing does not say when the unit will be sold.
