Raj Sethi, a Goldman Sachs executive, is a big fan of Robert A.M. Stern’s buildings.
Sethi, a vice president for commodities derivatives trading at Goldman, was an early buyer at the Stern-designed 15 Central Park West, where he bought unit 15 L for $4.13 million. He then decided to buy a condo at The Harrison On 76th Street, also designed by Stern.

Sethi is one of several Goldman Sachs execs at 15 Central Park West, as The Real Deal reports in a unit-by-unit look at the tower in this month’s issue.
“It’s a really wonderful space – it has a timeless design,” Sethi said. “I thought it was a little bit more unique than the other glass and steel structures that were going up.”

Sethi moved into the tower about two months ago, making him one of the first residents as well as one of the first buyers. He said he agreed to buy his condo back in March of 2006.

“Certainly, when I bought it, it was more per square foot than the going rate, but now it seems a bargain in comparison to other construction going up, and the resales [at the building] now,” Sethi said.
Sethi said that his condo at The Harrison would be a second home that visiting friends and family could use.

“I really loved the design and pre-war feel of Stern’s design at 15 Central Park West,” Sethis said. “So, I was also attracted to the Harrison because it has a similar aesthetic.”
