Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora has paid the highest price per square foot ever for a Philadelphia condo--$1,377. Mr. Sambora bought a three-bedroom condo on the 52nd floor of Center City's tallest residential tower for $3.58 million.
Some perspective: The average sales price per square foot of a Manhattan condo, according to the latest Miller Samuel-Douglas Elliman report, was $1,442 by mid-year. In Brooklyn, it was $575.
Kansas City condos average $200 to $250 per square foot showing you don't have to be a headliner to live in Kansas City. But if you want prestige, the highest square footage condos in Kansas City are the Alameda at $270 per square foot and the Walnuts at $285 per square foot (average).
