Moving to a new place can be really expensive. Even if you already have a fully furnished home or apartment, you wind up dropping thousands on the cost of movers. That doesn’t even include the security deposit and first month’s’ rent you’ll have to pay if you’re renting. If you’re buying, then that initial down payment will take a little piece of your soul. But one expensive place in NYC comes with a bit of a prize.

The most expensive apartment in NYC costs $85 million. No big deal, right?

The apartment is a 15,000-square-foot penthouse in Hell’s Kitchen. The penthouse is located in the Atelier building, a condo complex located on the corner of 42nd Street and 12th Avenue.

The pricey place comes with some perks. The new owner will get two Rolls-Royce Phantoms, a Lamborghini Aventador Roadster, a 75-foot yacht worth $1 million, and five years worth of dock fees on the Hudson river covered.

But it doesn’t end there. Also included in this purchase it the option to stay at a Hamptons mansion in the summer, which typically goes for about $350,000 for the season. There are weekly dinners for two at chef Daniel Boulud’s flagship restaurant for a year and courtside tickets to the Brooklyn Nets games ($225,000/year), and a live-in butler + private chef!

Now, I am about to sound like a TV salesman, but wait, there’s more. The craziest and most out-there inclusion to this multi-million dollar condo is a ticket to space. Yup, outer space is on the table in the realtor market now.

The condo comes with two tickets to the Virgin Galactic spaceflight, which go for about $250,000. Does that name sound familiar? Virgin Galactic is part of billionaire Richard Branson’s Virgin Group. So, if you miss your Virgin Atlantic flight, maybe you can upgrade to Virgin Galactic?

Now, if you have $85 million to spare, there is one catch about this place. The penthouse is currently broken up into 13 smaller units (with current tenants). If you were to purchase the condo, you’d get a $2 million renovation budget to combine them into one place. Brokers have warned interested parties that it could take over a year to actually renovate the place, though.
