The Real Deal New York

15 CPW pad sells for just under $24M ask

Meridian Capital CEO William Lawrence has found a buyer for his three-bedroom 15 Central Park West apartment, the New York Observer reported. Lawrence relisted his 2,761-square-foot spread on the 37th floor of the ultra-luxury building in February for $24 million, and the Observer said he got nearly that — $23.95 million — though the buyer’s identity was not disclosed. Lawrence and wife Gloria bought the pad for $10.6 million in 2008.

This flip, in combination with the record-smashing $88 million sale by Sandy Weill last December, prompted listing broker Paula Del Nunzio of Brown Harris Stevens to tell the Observer that resales at the “building [are] a micromarket all in itself; it commands a higher price per square foot than any other building.” [NYO]
