A second D-line apartment at 15 Central Park West is available for resale within several weeks of the first one going on the market.

The three-bedroom, 3,173-square-foot unit 35D is on the market for $26 million, according to Streeteasy.com. Donald Opartny, a partner at Goldman Sachs, purchased the unit in January 2008 for $11.6 million.

Brown Harris Stevens’ John Burger, a senior vice president and managing director, and Richard Wallgren, a BHS vice president, have the listing. Burger declined to comment on the unit, saying he is under a confidentiality agreement for the listing.

Several recent attempted flips at 15 Central Park West have been blocked by the economy. A resale penthouse saw a $32.5 million price cut in October, to $47.5 million from $80 million. Unit 2C closed for $11 million, below its original $16.5 million asking price, according to city records.

D-line apartments in the Robert A.M. Stern-designed building face northeast and have Central Park views on three sides, making them particularly desirable, Prudential Douglas Elliman Associate Broker Andre Rouch, who has the listing for 25D, told The Real Deal earlier this month.
