New York's most luxurious, recognized and desired condo designed by leading world architect Robert Stern is located directly on Central Park West with close proximity to Lincoln Center and Columbus Circle in the midst of outstanding shopping and restaurants.
Built with the same limestone as the legendary Empire State Building, 15 CPW combines old and new. The building links another era with the current modern times, giving the condo owners in this building the absolute best of both worlds. Occupying probably the last significant location on Central Park, 15 CPW has managed to fit in perfectly on the Central Park skyline. Looking like it belongs there with all of the other prewar classic buildings that adorn the Upper West Side of Manhattan.
The apartments in 15 Central Park West have rooms on Central Park West with spectacular views of the park, New York skyline, along with views of Lincoln Center and sunsets over the Hudson River to the west. There are spacious bedrooms, luxurious kitchens and marble baths. The finishes of the apartments are second to none, with gourmet eat-in kitchens, high 11 foot ceilings, huge open floor plans, wood floors and state of the art wiring for the internet and cable TV.
There is a private screening room, private restaurant with in-house delivery of gourmet food, a 14,000 square foot fitness center with a 75 foot lap pool, a garage with valet parking, 24 hour doorman and concierge, and a circular driveway to drop people off at the door.
One of the special features of this building is that it is in fact two buildings that are connected in the middle by a breezeway that also has a doorman and concierge. The front building is only about 19 stories tall, but houses some massive homes with 8-10 rooms each. also directly on the park, these homes act almost as individual townhouses in a luxury doorman building.
The second tower rises up over 35 floors and has had residents like Sting, Arthur and Willam Zeckandorf, and Sanford I. Weill. The prices in this building have uniquely managed to stay very strong, even during the recent downturn. Recently, William Zeckendorf sold his apartment for $40,000,000. He only paid about $11M for it back when the building was going up. Prices have gone as high as $9,000 per square foot.
The Developers of this building was the Zeckandorf Family, and Kent Swig Enterprises. The building was at least partially financed by The Goldman Sachs Investment Bank. The architectural firm was Robert A. M. Stern who also designed The Brompton on the East Side and 1280 Fifth Avenue to mention a few.
