Calvin Klein’s old duplex penthouse in New York has undergone extensive architectural and renovation work to convert it into a single unit. This work is believed to have cost a surprising five million dollars.
Terrace on Calvin Klien's Duplex Penthouse in NYC
Fashion designer Calvin Klein had lived in this penthouse in the nineties, during which he had had the interior walls removed, and installed a hot tub on the sun-drenched roof area. Currently, this New York apartment is owned by Steve Gottlieb, an ex-record executive, who bought the penthouse from Klein for the price of $8.6 million dollars. While Gottlieb lives in the same building in an 18th floor flat, he uses the huge duplex penthouse on the 19th and 20th floors as an area for private parties.

As Steve Gottlieb does not really use this Manhattan duplex penthouse, it was put up for sale at a price of 35 million dollars, making it one of the most expensive homes to be listed in the New York area.
