If anyone is a firm believer that second actually is best, the just-released 95th floor penthouse at 432 Park Avenue is perfect. It has all the sleek features one has come to expect from the building, like 12-foot ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, a library, marble-bedecked kitchens and bathrooms and a private elevator entrance. The six-bedroom, seven-bathroom full-floor unit is located right below the top-floor penthouse that sold just over a month ago for $87.7 million—the priciest sale thus far in the boxy tower. If this unit receives its full $82 million asking price, it’ll be the second-most expensive sale. Only time will tell… (Curbed)

David Chipperfield’s The Bryant topped out at 34 stories. It’s the British architect’s first residential project in New York City, and will consist of a total of 57 condos, with a 230-room hotel on the first 15 floors. The residential units range from one- to four-bedrooms, as well as two triplex penthouses. Prices start at $2.25 million and go to just $10 million, though the penthouses prices have not yet been revealed. Approximately 40 percent of the apartments at 16 West 40th Street are already sold, and work is expected to finish at some point next year. (Curbed)

Down in the East Village, Annabelle Selldorf-designed 347 Bowery topped out a few months ago, but now exterior work is wrapping up. The 13-story, five-unit construction is now sans scaffolding, and completion is expected by the end of this year. Urban Muse is the developer behind the mixed-use building, which will house four duplexes as well as a triplex penthouse. The condo units will average about 3,134 square feet each. The retail space spans the cellar through second floors. (YIMBY)

Out in California, Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale’s Beverly Hills home is on the market for $35 million. The now-divorced pair purchased the 11,845-square-foot home in August 2006 for $13.25 million—past owners include Jennifer Lopez. Anyway, at a time before Blake Shelton entered the picture, Stefani and Rossdale brought in Los Angeles design favorite Kelly Wearstler to work her magic on the seven-bedroom, ten-bathroom home, where one will find a screening room, professional gym and black marble fireplaces. There’s also an outdoor living and dining room with a fireplace, as well as an infinity edge pool, lighted tennis court, children’s playground, and last but definitely not least, a chicken coop.

Elsewhere on the West Coast, Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke purchased a $4.64 million house in Venice. The two-bedroom, three-bathroom home spans 2,817 square feet, with lots of outdoor space including a garden, lounge area, and a 30-foot swimming pool. The indoor living area is quite nice too, with floor-to-ceiling bookcases, and there’s an open kitchen with custom cabinets. And, of course, the master bedroom is complete with a wall of windows and an enormous walk-in closet. But would Daenerys approve? (Trulia)

Across the pond, Justin Bieber is apparently shelling out approximately $108,333 a month for a London manse dubbed Heath Hall. He’s staying in the 15-bedroom, 27,000-square-foot home while on his Purpose Tour, as all 22-year-olds do. The estate is situated on two-and-a-half-acres, and is configured with a drawing room, formal dining room, commercial kitchen and study. There are indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a Jacuzzi, steam room, sauna, cinema room, gym, wine cellar, bar,and a tennis court. Oh, and there’s also a five-car garage. Insert “sorry not sorry” jokes here. (Luxury Listings)
