Kenneth Himmel and his Time Warner Center apartment

Time Warner Center developer Kenneth Himmel has listed his own 2,416-square-foot condominium at the Columbus Circle skyscraper for $18.375 million, up more than 22 percent from the $15 million he was asking for it when the apartment hit the market last year. According to the Post, Himmel, who is president and CEO of Related Urban, had pulled the listing from the market in order to renovate before upping the price. The three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom spread has a 27-by-20-foot great room, mahogany-paneled library and views of Central Park, and is listed by Brown Harris Stevens’ Elizabeth Sample and Brenda Powers. It’s unclear why Himmel is selling, but he’s not the first New York City trophy tower developer to unload his personal residence in recent months. William Zeckendorf, who built Time Warner Center competitor 15 Central Park West, sold his penthouse there for $40 million late last year. [Post]
