From LLNYC’s Look at Listings: Another unit at the swanky Plaza Hotel has hit the market. This one is a 4,665-square-foot pad that is asking $22.5 million and is called “mansion 201.” We’re not entirely sure how the pad has earned the moniker of “mansion,” as opposed to simply a unit number, but it certainly adds a little grandeur.

The home’s current owner is 201 Plaza Partners, LLC. They paid a little under $17.3 million for the spread in May 2015, and from the look of the listing photos they’ve not changed anything, so the more than $5 million price bump raises some eyebrows. [more]
