But with some of the world's richest 1% already lining up to pay big money to buy there, it is publicity they probably don't need or want. One57's new owners are Global Billionaire Club folks from the United States, China, Canada, Nigeria and England. One has to be a billionaire to afford the duplex penthouse on the 89th and 90th floors that is under contract for over $95 million. Pricing on the remaining units run from $7 to $50 million. Less than 40 of the 92 units remain unsold.
