West Hollywood Condominium Seeks to Set Sales Record with Whopping $50 Million Ask

A grandiose 10,000-square-foot West Hollywood penthouse located on the top floor of Townscape Partners’ 8899 Beverly Boulevard is up for grabs for an astounding $50 million, reports the Los Angeles Times. The East Penthouse occupies the 10th floor and is composed of steel and glass, ceilings that soar nearly 14 feet high, and spectacular views of the skyline. If this home sells for its asking price, it will become the county’s most expensive condominium ever sold.

The West Penthouse, located on the second half of the same floor, will be available in the fall, seeking $50 million as well. Prospective buyers can purchase the East and West Penthouses together immediately for a combined $100 million. The two penthouses were designed to be combinable, which would create an astounding 20,000-square-foot, single-story penthouse: the largest of its kind in the world.
