LONDON’s humongous house prices appear to be heading north as plans emerge to put £12 million penthouses on sale in North Yorkshire.

It looks like Howard Hughes Corporation CEO David Weinreb is the buyer of a $38 million penthouse at Scott Resnick’s 551 West 21st Street.

The penthouse spans roughly 6,400 square feet and is being delivered as a “white box,” the New York Post reported. The unit had initially been listed for $50 million, but sources told the Post that Weinreb could spend another $20 million or so building out the space.
