Need a lot of room? The Wall Street Journal's Developments blog reports on a new penthouse that would satisfy even the most square-footage-hungry buyer. The penthouse unit of the 14-story Genesis Puntarenas in Costa Rica is a 68,459-square-foot oceanfront spread. The developers are calling it the world's largest penthouse and want to sell the not-yet-built unit for $50 million.
Renderings available at the Hurwitz James Company show a building with a fitness center, pool with a swim-up bar, restaurant and business center. It is believed that the building will take two years to complete. The three-story penthouse will have ten bedrooms and has its own rooftop pool, tennis court, private helipad and floor-to-ceiling retractable glass walls. Bob Hurwitz tells the WSJ that there has already been interest from a Russian bachelor and a family from China. Prices for the building's 47 other units range from $473,000 to $3.3 million. Units have floor-to-ceiling retractable glass walls and private all-glass terraces. The building is located in the Pacific Coast city of Puntarenas, about a half-hour drive from the capital city of San Jose.
