Amal and George Clooney have bought in New York — sources exclusively tell Page Six — at luxury apartment building One Hundred East Fifty Third Street.
The skyscraper from developer Aby Rosen and starchitect Norman Foster’s Foster + Partners is expected to be completed next year.
A source told to Page Six :
“The high-profile couple did not purchase the penthouse, but instead opted for a high-floor residence in the upcoming building.” The two-floor penthouse in the condo building, with 94 units, is going for $65 million.
Among active listings at the building, the next highest-floor apartment for sale is a 49th floor, 3,385-square-foot, full-floor apartment for $14.75 million — which includes three bedrooms and 3 ¹/₂ bathrooms, direct elevator access, “a grand entry gallery” and a “spacious great room with dramatic northern, western and eastern exposures” with “floor-to-ceiling windows and nearly 11-foot ceilings.” That unit also includes a “private corner master bedroom suite with southern and eastern exposures . . . with a grand dressing room and a tranquil five-fixture en suite bathroom with sweeping city views.”
Apartments at the building start at $2.6 million.
A source said to PageSix the couple opted for the building because of its design and amenities, and because it is close to the United Nations for Amal, a renowned human-rights lawyer, who is also teaching at Columbia Law School.
