When the late investor and Wall Street pundit Martin Zweig bought the Pierre triplex in 1999 for $21.5, it set a record as the city’s most expensive pad. Zweig’s heirs are selling the place (he died in February) and the apartment once again is Gotham’s highest priced at $125,000.000. It’s a cash only co-op and there’s a board to impress. As impressive as it is, the space is way too traditional and hotel-y and just aching for a makeover. Or at least some really savvy staging. The original Pierre ballroom is included, which is its own interesting design challenge for the multi-million dollar decorator who will ultimately get the gig. No kitchen or bathroom shots which suggest they are dated deal breakers but then again at this level, buyers can afford the redo.
