The penthouse apartment that serves as the on-screen home of Roman Roy on HBO’s Succession has hit the market for a whopping $38million.
The apartment rose to fame in the latest season of the HBO show, serving as Roman Roy’s newest residence as he plots his rise to grandeur.
Roman Roy’s spacious four-bedroom, 4½-bath Upper West Side duplex is located in real life on the 49th and 50th floors of 200 Amsterdam Avenue, the tallest building in the area.
The building previously drew criticism even before it was built after its planned height was felt to be out of character with the neighborhood.
A judge ordered the developer, SJP Properties, to remove 20 floors from the top of the 52-story building since it violated zoning laws.
