Leona Helmsley’s Old Miami Penthouse Can be Yours for $3.2 Million

The Queen of mean sure knew how to live.

Brickell's Palace Condominium located at 1901 Brickell Avenue in Miami

A penthouse at the top of Brickell’s Palace Condominium located at 1901 Brickell Avenue in Miami which once belonged to Leona Helmsley is on the market for $3.2 million.

It was built for the “Queen of Mean, ” but she never actually lived there. Helmsley sold it to an Arab Sheik before moving in.

Unit A4000 was expanded to 5, 000 square feet over three levels by the sheik who also decorated it with Arab style designs. Located on the 40th floor and built in 1981 the penthouse features soaring ceilings on the main level, living areas on the 2nd & 3rd floor, 1 private elevator, 360 degree views, a 3, 000 square foot terrace, a glass atrium where “one feels as they are in the clouds” and 5 parking spaces.

The building was designed by Arquitectonica and is considered a significant project. It was built in 1975, has 1, 000 apartments, a gym, tennis courts and, of course, an outdoor swimming pool.

Meanwhile, the Helmsley Family Charitable Trust has given a three year, $4.6 million grant to help people who suffer from heart attacks in the State of Iowa.

It was announced this week by the American Heart Association which launched the “Mission: Lifeline” project together with the Helmsley Trust in South Dakota in 2010. The project is now also active in Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Wyoming, and Iowa.
