Absolute Bubble Insanity: For Nearly Half A BILLION Dollars, Here Is The World’s Most Expensive Penthouse

–  Absolute Bubble Insanity: For Nearly Half A Billion Dollars, Here Is The World’s Most Expensive Penthouse (ZeroHedge, Aug 19, 2014):

Forget Hong Kong, London and New York: when it comes to the pinnacle in absolute real estate insanity – perhaps in all of history – look no further than James Bond’s favorite gambling mecca, Monaco. It is in this tiny Riviera principality where we find the Tour Odeon, a double-skyscraper being built by Groupe Marzocco SAM near Monaco’s Mediterranean seafront, which will contain a 3,300 square-meter (35,500 square-foot) penthouse with a water slide connecting a dance floor to a circular open-air swimming pool. The description is nice, but it is the bottom line that is mindblowing: Bloomberg reports that the apartment may sell for more than 300 million euros ($400 million) when it goes on the market next year, French magazine Challenges reported. That would make it the world’s most expensive penthouse, according to broker Knight Frank LLP.

  1. Like he says….James Bond’s favourite gambling mecca……and like James Bond, it just bears no resemblance to reality.
