Built in 1929 as the New York Central Railroad Building, it was purchased in the 80’s by the Helmsleys. “Queen Of Mean” Leona later stipulated that all future owners of the building must keep its Helmsley name. In 2006 the Helmsley was purchased for $705M by the royal family of Dubai, who sold it one year later to Goldman Sachs for $1B. Flip this house. The building just completed a $100M green retrofit which included replacing all of its windows with double-paned glass.
