Record sale: $7.7 million for Center City condo

Talk about living large.

Talk about living large.

"The most expensive luxury condominium ever sold in the history of Philadelphia" has fetched nearly $7.7 million, according to the Residences at Two Liberty Place.

A spokeswoman declined to say who the buyer is, but names linked to other properties there include Phillies pitcher Cole Hamels and Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora, who purchased a $3.58 million pad on the 52d floor.

The four-bedroom home on the 46th floor - one of 20 floors with living quarters - has 5,850 square feet of space, including billiard room, a "custom gourmet kitchen," hand-finished walnut floors, and more than 2,000 square feet of balcony.

That's the "highest residential outdoor space in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania," according to a news release.

Only One Liberty Place and the Comcast Center, the city's tallest building, rise higher in Philadelphia.

"The properties here are truly iconic and cannot be found anywhere else in the city," said Richard S. Oller, chairman of Madison Park LLC, the Residences management firm.

The building also made news last summer when Unisys wanted to erect two giant logos on the exterior. Residents, including Sambora, objected, and the Zoning Board of Adjustments ruled against the proposal.

Unisys has since dropped the idea of moving into the city.

Condo prices at Two Liberty Place begin at $795,000.
