Meet 15 Central Park West – perhaps one of the most talked-about developments in New York. Developed by Arthur and William Lie Zeckendorf, this definitive park side address delivers the most appealing qualities of traditional Central Park West living, including two distinct building entrances, room to entertain grandly, full-time staff, gardens, a classic motor court while incorporating the best of contemporary possibilities. Fifteen Central Park West offers soaring ceilings and windows, individual wine cellars with solid oak cabinetry, a private in-house chef, and some of the largest penthouse apartments and terraces the city has ever seen. The 202 apartments range from one-bedroom to four bedroom homes. Terraced duplex and full-floor penthouses exceed 5,000 and 6,000 sf. Grand four-bedrooms are 4,000 sf; three-bedrooms, 3,000 sf; one-bedrooms are exceptionally sized at 1,000 sf.
Situated on the site of the old Mayflower Hotel, 15 CPW is a complex consisting of two limestone buildings – the house and the tower – designed by Robert AM Stern. The building’s design pays homage to the old stately buildings that line Central Park West, Fifth Avenue and Park Avenue – taking the best features and adding modern conveniences.
“Sellers are a lot more confident in this building than probably any other building,” said Sofia Song, vice president of research at New York-based StreetEasy, a property-listings website. “There’s not a whole lot of inventory or product out there that’s like 15 Central Park West. When the demand is intense, that’s when you get these crazy prices.” – via Bloomberg
