1. One Hyde Park, London, $255 M
Here it is. The absolute winner, the #1 on the list of the most expensive penthouses: London’s One Hyde Park. Though it’s not a skyscraper, it is probably London’s most discussed living quarters for billionaires. Its interior designer Candy & Candy states that the penthouse was sold for $255 million, while some other reports say its actual price was much lower. Christian Candy is the official owner, backed by his financial supporter Sheik Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani. Yeah, an actual Sheikh!
