Someone is renting the $70K-a-month penthouse in Kushner’s Puck Building

Though we couldn’t get over how beautiful the penthouses in the Puck Building were when we toured them last February, it seems that their developer (and son-in-law-in-chief) Jared Kushner is having a bit of a hard time selling them. The sprawling Penthouse I, which was last listed on the market for $58.5 million, has yet to find a buyer, and neither have its five cousin penthouses, which start in price at $18.5 million.

And yet, someone is living in the building because one of those penthouses — penthouse II — has just been rented. It was last asking a whopping $70,000-a-month.

Curbed confirmed that the apartment had been rented (instead of merely taken off the market), though the rental price and the renter is unknown. Whoever is renting this place, they’ll be able to enjoy 5,222 square feet of  (fully furnished) space, with three bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms. The unit has “soaring barrel vaulted ceilings,” cast iron columns, floor-to-ceiling windows, a landscaped terrace and a full chef’s kitchen — though we highly doubt this particular rentee is cooking anything.
