As expected, the penthouse of Chelsea’s highly-acclaimed Walker Tower sold for more than $50 million, setting a new record for the most expensive home ever sold in Downtown Manhattan. The Journal reports that the all-cash deal closed for $50.9 million, and, evidently, the unnamed buyer was in the space “less than five minutes” before stating “I’ll take it.” Because $50M spur-of-the-moment decisions are never a bad idea.

The full-floor, nearly 6,000-square-foot unit was listed last September for $55 million, and by the end of October, the Times reported that it entered contract for “slightly less than ask.” Can $4 million be defined as “slightly”? No matter, the sale takes the title away from the penthouse of 18 Gramercy Park, which sold for $42 million to the owner of the Houston Rockets in 2012.
