Despite a real estate market that’s gouging New Yorkers left and right, there are still some “bargain basement” deals on the West Side if you know where to look. For the low low price of only $27 million, a nearly 7,000-square-foot Waterline Square glass castle in the sky can be yours — what a steal!

The 37th floor five bedroom, six-and-a-half bathroom abode at Riverside Drive and W59th Street boasts 50 feet of direct Hudson River views from the Statue of Liberty to the George Washington Bridge through its floor-to-ceiling windows, plus a 956-square-foot terrace larger than the full floor plan of most apartments. The terrace, featuring a walled-off set of south facing windows for a feeling of privacy without sacrificing waterfront views, boasts a TV, grill, cabana and a fully working fireplace — perfect for warming up on winter nights and burning your piles of cash.

The light-drenched interiors feature top-of-the-line ​​Pedini cabinetry and German Gaggenau appliances, a lush northwest facing primary bedroom with full-sized walk-in dressing room, dual bathrooms and a library, perhaps filled with financial literature of how to achieve a net worth that makes parting with $27 million dollars a feasible life decision.

Advertised as a residence that offers “a life that transcends expectations” where you can “rethink how you live”, One Waterline Square is one of three luxury condominium residential towers designed by the Pritzker prize-winning architecture firm Richard Meier & Partners Architects.

The complex boasts its own park, the only regulation sized indoor tennis court to be found in a New York City residential development, a spa and Soho House-style social club, a pool, basketball court, soccer field, 30-foot rock climbing wall, half-pipe skate park, squash court, boxing studio, yoga studio, general fitness center, recording studio (at least one Grammy Award winner has resided in Waterline Square), art studio, children’s playroom, and of course, private delivery dining access to the newly-minted Harry’s Table in the ground floor of Two Waterline Square.

If life in the lap of luxury is calling, Waterline Square is not only offering apartments from just $3.8 million but also a 20-year 421A tax abatement — take that, Uncle Sam! Wondering how anyone is able to throw down this kind of cash? According to the Waterline Square website, the residences are already 95 percent spoken for. In this economy!!
