    The city’s priciest condominiums are bunched around the southwest tip of Central Park on the Upper West Side, not in the stuffy enclaves of the Upper East Side, a new report from CityRealty found. The Zeckendorf brothers’ 15 Central Park West is the city’s most expensive — prices at the Robert A.M. Stern-designed building at West 61st Street have hit an average of $5,847 per square foot, according to the report. [more]

    Hedge funder Zachary Jared Schreiber has quietly unloaded his three-bedroom apartment at 15 Central Park West for $29 million, according to public records filed with the city on Friday. The sale comes more than a year after Schreiber, a founder of PointState Capital, and wife Lori purchased a ninth-floor co-op at 1030 Fifth Avenue for $31 million.

    The unit at 15 Central Park West sold to Mussik Capital Corporation in a deal that closed July 10. The corporation is registered to the address of the Manhattan law firm Raphael & Marks. Ellen Marks, the attorney who signed the deed on the seller’s behalf, was not immediately available for comment. [more]

    A top sales executive at Macklowe Properties has had his own little windfall after selling his 15 Central Park West apartment for nearly double what he paid in 2008, the New York Observer reported.

    Richard Wallgren, who was sales director of 15 Central Park West while at Brown Harris Stevens, paid $1.8 million for the 1,079-square-foot one-bedroom sponsor unit in April 2008, a hefty discount off the $2.5 million asking price. And now, he sold the apartment to Second 40 Holdings LLC for $3.48 million, according to city records seen by the Observer. [more]

  • From the April issue: It’s been quite a roller coaster ride for New York City’s real estate industry since The Real Deal launched a decade ago. Between the boom, the bust and the recovery, there have been many highs and lows for the industry — from record deals like Google’s purchase of its headquarters for $1.8 billion to the now-notorious default on the loan at Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper Village. [more]

  • 15 Central Park West, PH20

    Manhattan’s once-fabled co-op addresses no longer command the biggest sales prices in the city, and have been upended by newer destination condominium addresses, real estate author Michael Gross writes in the Daily Beast. Co-ops, which often require the buyer to go through a rigorous board approval process, are losing ground to condo buildings that offer an unmatched range of amenities, such as concierges, in-house restaurants, room service and swimming pools. Beginning in 2003, with the Mexican financier David Martinez’s $54.7 million purchase of a penthouse at the Time Warner Center, condos have held the record for highest sale prices. And condos command a higher price per square foot than comparatively-sized co-ops. … [more]

  • In 2012, residential sales broke records

    15 Central Park West, PH20

    From the January issue: Town Residential founder Andrew Heiberger recently dubbed 2012 the “Year of the Penthouse,” due to the recent stream of record-breaking deals. The year started with the now-famous $88 million sale of a penthouse at 15 Central Park West, and before 2012 was done, city-wide records for condo, co-op and townhouse sales had all been broken — some more than once. In 2012, there were 10 sales over $30 million, compared to six in 2011, according to data from the listings website StreetEasy. And at $88 million, 2012’s most expensive sale dwarfs 2011’s $48 million record and 2007’s $50 million top deal. [more]
