The Empire State Building is for sale. But even if you can come up with the money, don't bother calling the movers for a while.
A complex lease agreement will prevent the new owner from taking control of the property until 2076, the New York Times reported Monday.The 102-story building's owner, Prudential Life Insurance Co. of America, has set a sale price of $45 million to $50 million, the Times said. Now that the company has gotten back all it invested and the tax benefits have been exhausted, it has decided to sell, the Times said.
The Empire State Building opened in 1931 and for four decades was the tallest building in the world.
