A penthouse on top of a new Auckland tower is asking $24 million.

relates to New Zealand’s Most Expensive Home Ever Is Hitting the Market

Construction broke ground in 2017 on the Pacifica, a 584-foot-high tower in Auckland, with a design plan that included 285 apartments, a boutique hotel, and ground-floor retail. When completed, it will be the tallest residential tower in New Zealand.

As it began to market the apartments, the building’s developer, Hengyi Pacific (NZ) Ltd., discovered concentrated demand for larger, more expensive units. It tweaked the design, reducing the number of apartments in order to expand footprints. The largest, a 13,000-square-foot “super penthouse” that occupies the 53rd and 54th floors at the top of the building, is now hitting the market for NZ$40 million ($23.9 million). The listing is represented by Jason Gaddes and Scarlett Wood of New Zealand Sotheby’s International Realty.
