A really rich one.

According to The Real Deal magazine, sources told The Wall Street Journal that Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos is paying nearly $80 million for a three-unit spread at the extraordinary skyscraper.

The New York real estate news publication reported Bezos’ purchase includes the building’s top penthouse, which spans a block long. That means Bezos will have to walk a whole city block just to get to his new master bedroom.

And the price tag for the triplex penthouse alone?

A jaw-dropping $53 million.
