Want a golden ticket to Billionaire’s Row? Become a building super. With intense competition for the best supers, NYC’s most luxurious new condos have units for live-in supers that are prime real estate. The super’s unit, though owned by the building, is provided to the super (also known as the resident manager) as part of their benefits package for as long as they work for the building.
In Q4 2022, the average new development condo in Manhattan sold for $3.6M. Peanuts compared to the 3-bed, 3.5-bath super’s unit at Central Park Tower. More on that is below.
Here’s a look at five ultra-luxe NYC resident manager units.

5. 50 West 66th Street: $5.6M
At 50 West 66th Street, Extell’s 69-story condo tower in Lincoln Square, the super gets a 3-bed, 3-bath condo that has nearly 2,500 square feet of living space. Priced at $5.6M and $2,307 PSF, this unit is more expensive than the neighborhood’s average condo sold in Q4 for $2.6. More here >>>
4. Selene: $5.95M
Selene, aka 100 East 53rd Street, is considered a more attainably priced Billionaire’s Row-caliber development, but the super’s unit here is pretty comparable to One57. With 2-beds, 2.5 baths, and 1,970 square feet valued at $5.95M and $3,020 PSF. That’s pretty pricey compared to Midtown’s average of $2.8M average for a 2-bed in Q4. More here >>>
3. One57: $6.0M
At One57 (aka 157 West 57th Street), the resident manager lives in residence 34C. This 2-bed, 2.5-bath unit is just under 2,000 square feet and is valued at around $6.0M. That’s around $2,800 PSF, which is a bargain considering the average unit in the pioneering Billionaire’s Row tower sold for $3,690 PSF. More here >>>
