This property being built on the site of the former Drake Hotel is expected to top the most expensive list when it comes onto the market. The Drake was a favorite of stars and was made famous for the rock generation when Led Zeppelin was robbed of $200,000 in cash there back in 1973.
Expected to be completed in 2015, the building will contain more than 140 residential units, totaling $2.43 billion, according to filings. It will soar to 1,379 feet — which would make it the tallest apartment building in New York.
