GUCCI New York Penthouse
In the world of fame and fortune, one thing is certain, the high priced prime real estate that is home sweet home for the most notable names in the world. From a New York penthouse to a private island, no property is off limits to the wealthy.
Sisters Alessandra and Allegra Gucci are the great-granddaughters of Guccio Gucci, the founder of the Gucci fashion empire producing fashion designs, accessories, handbags, and sunglasses that have been staples of the wealthy for three generations. The sisters’ lives are now comfortably settled after inheriting millions from their father, Maurizio, after he sold his share of Gucci to an investment firm in 1993 for a reported $170 million.

The two-story prime New Yok real estate located in the Olympic Tower New York penthouse was purchased in the 1970s by Maurizio and is set up as two units – each with kitchens, fireplaces, private elevators and stairwells. The combined units contain eight bedrooms and ten baths encompassing 9,500-square-feet.

Alessandra and Allegra originally listed it in the summer of 2015 for $45 million, but took it off the market, changed agents and relisted it in June at $35 million – a price more in line with others in the building.
Located on the 50th and 51st floors with 14-foot ceiling-to-floor glass walls, the duplex has dramatic city and river views with sunny east, south and west exposure. The two master suites each have walk-in closets, dressing area, jetted tubs and a sauna. The panelled den has a wood-burning fireplace and a 16-foot skylight and the eat-in kitchen has high-end appliances, a service kitchen, pantry and views of the Empire State Building.
The Gucci sisters have listed their New York City Fifth Avenue penthouse in the white glove-serviced Olympic Tower for $35 million.
