Barely a few weeks into 2015, the final figure for the priciest condo sale in Manhattan’s history emerged: $100.5 million. In a blockbuster deal that began in 2012, but wasn’t finalized until Dec. 23, 2014, the penthouse at One57 clocked in at a precise $100,471,452, easily eclipsing the previous record of $88 million set in 2012.
