The top floor of a controversial Manhattan supertall residential building known as “432 Park Avenue” has hit the market with a jaw-dropping asking price of $229 million (US$169 million) — making it the city’s most expensive listing.

The six-bedroom, seven-bathroom, two-powder-room penthouse sits on the 96th floor of a “toothpick-like” building that has garnered a reputation for creaking, floods and supposed design flaws.

Nevertheless, the seller received several offers in the month before he listed the 767 sqm property for sale, Ryan Serhant told The Post.

But the offers apparently were not high enough to entice the seller to strike a deal.

“We wanted to maximise value by bringing it on the market,” Serhant said.

The unit with a massive floor plan has been re-done and filled with Fendi, Bentley and Hermès furniture, a curated art collection, herringbone white oak floors, high-end finishes and a library.
