Available for short or long-term rental through Town Residential and situated at 2 East 61st Street, the 6-bedroom apartment on offer is two floors below the building’s penthouse – which was initially offered for sale in 2013 for £82 million ($125 million or €113 million) and then relaunched for just £41 million ($63 million or €57 million) in January 2015.

 

Aside from having the privacy that stems from occupying the entire 39th floor, tenants will benefit from a private elevator and full hotel services including butler services, a 24/7 concierge, “pet pampering”, twice daily maid service and use of the hotel’s chauffeur-driven Jaguar. The marketing agent describes it as “truly fit for a CEO, royalty or head of state”.

Just before he died in 1934, Charles Pierre, the man who built and ran The Pierre, commented: “It will take years to discover whether society will find itself again. Society no longer exists. Today it’s: How much money have you? Yesterday, it was: Who are you?” The person who rents the 39th floor will no doubt be someone who asks the first of the two questions.

  1. Long may big spenders and their families hit town

    Bulgari, Burberry, Harvey Nicks, Harrods and all the other Knightsbridge shops pay extortionate rent and rates to be able to attract these ‘ rarae aves ‘
