One Beacon Court is an expansive luxury condominium that fills an entire city block. You will find it between East 58th and 59th street in a prime Midtown East location.

The most exclusive and highest priced unit in the building belongs to Hedge fund billionaire Steve Cohen. He bought a duplex penthouse in 2005 for a lofty $24 million.

The updates to the penthouse include white venetian plaster walls as well as a double-height living room with 24-foot floor-to-ceiling glass windows. In 2015 the home entered the market again for $115 million. The price has been dropped over the years, and late last year it was relisted at $57.5 million.
