    Here's the 'weak' part I discovered after seeing this unit.

    #1 It's not a penthouse. It's on the 4th floor of 7 floors. It's a middle floor at best, not an 'upper floor' as claimed in the listing.

    #2 It's not 2000 sq ft as listed – it's only 1657.

    #3 This would be the most expensive per square foot ever sold in the Banner Building, even at the new reduced price, despite the fact we are in a huge slump.

    I think the market price is $800k max given the Banner Building is coming up on 20 years old and has limited amenities compared to new condo's.
