The city’s new most expensive rental is a six-bedroom pad at the Pierre Hotel that is back on the market for $500,000 a month.
The current listing, which initially went on the market in the fall of 2014, was first reported by Curbed.
The suite’s listing broker, Andres Perea-Garzon of the Corcoran Group, last rented it for the princely $500,000-a-month sum in December 2014 — for one month only.
“The renter was a member of a Middle Eastern royal family,” Perea-Garzon tells The Post. (That was also when you could pay by credit card.)
If the $500K ask is too much, you can rent it through the hotel for $30,000/night.
The monthly price tag is far higher than the city’s second-priciest rental — a $300,000-a-month, three-bedroom, three-bathroom penthouse that has been on the market at the Lowell hotel’s 28 E. 63rd St. for 411 days, according to StreetEasy.
So what do you get for $500,000/month? The Pierre suite takes up the whole floor; the spread, with 6 1/2-bathrooms, is 4,786 square feet.
It comes ready for entertaining, with sweeping city views, high ceilings, Murano glass chandeliers, lush textiles and “high end technology,” according to the listing. There’s also a formal master suite with a spa-like bathroom, a “fully equipped butler’s kitchen” and curated artwork.
It comes with its own private elevator, plus plenty of other perks.
There’s access to the hotel’s chauffeur-driven Jaguar XJL, twice-daily maid service, access to the hotel’s gym and business center, and no wait for the hotel’s new French restaurant, Perrine.
These days, though, the Pierre’s short-term renters tend to be locals, not foreigners, who live within a 10-mile radius. They include residents from some of the city’s most exclusive buildings, like 740 Park Ave., who need to find temporary digs when their homes are renovated or damaged in fires or from other disasters.
“A lot of Upper East Siders rent here if there had been a fire in their apartment, and the insurance pays,” Perea-Garzon says. “There were a surprising number of fires last year.”
The five other Pierre Hotel monthly rentals on the market seem like a steal by comparison: at $125,000, $85,000, $75,000, $50,000 and $37,000 per month, respectively.
