A New York apartment has been worth a record $2.7 million.
The penthouse, on the corner of 8th and Fifth Streets in Manhattan, is now the most expensive in the world.
It was originally listed for $1.7 billion in 2013, and now stands at $2 billion.
It was the largest single-family home sold in the city in 2016, and is now among the priciest ever sold in New York, according to a database compiled by real estate analytics company Zillow.
One of the most prominent buyers, Russian billionaire Yuri Milner, bought the penthouse in 2013 for $2,025,000.
Milner is also a prominent philanthropist and philanthropist of the billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov family.
Milner and his wife, Evgenia, are said to be “extremely generous” donors to philanthropic causes.
In February, the Milners announced that they would donate $1 billion to the United Nations.
“They’ve been very generous to the UN and the world, and I think that is what’s made this so special,” said Alex Pareene, an assistant professor of real estate at The Ohio State University who has studied the Milner family.
Pareene said the Milnners’ wealth and influence can be seen in the apartment’s design, which includes a private balcony with a glass-walled living area.
The living room also features a custom-made gold-trimmed table and a leather couch that looks like a bed.
Parene said the apartment is “very well done.”
“This is a very well-designed apartment,” he said.
While the Milns have been wealthy donors to several charities, Parene noted that they have been particularly generous to their philanthropic work.
Their philanthropic endeavors include helping to launch the Red Cross in Ukraine, the largest humanitarian effort in the country.
At a news conference on Feb. 24, President Trump announced the Milnor family’s $1,000 donation to the U.N. Human Rights Council, which aims to combat human rights violations in Ukraine.
