Quietly shopped 15 CPW penthouse is brokers’ top choice for luxury apartment

There’s another penthouse in 15 Central Park West that’s quietly on the market whose ultimate purchase price could shatter the record set by Dmitriy Rybolovlev, the New York Times reported, and that tops the list of homes high-end brokers would show buyers shopping in the $30 million-and-up apartment aisle.

There are only 28 current condo listings asking at least $30 million in the city right now — co-ops were excluded because foreign buyers likely wouldn’t be interested — and 15 of them are in Extell Development’s One57. The Times asked brokers and industry insiders which of those units would they first show a luxury buyer.

The 10,674-square-foot penthouse on the 55th floor of 15 CPW taller tower that hedge funder Daniel Loeb bought for $45 million in 2008 was a unanimous inclusion on the list. Though the unit is not officially on the market, it is said to be asking $100 million. The 13,554-square-foot two-floor penthouse and winter garden apartment in One57 (different from the one reportedly in contract), asking $115 million, ranked second. The 76th and 77th floors in the Time Warner Center’s North Tower, the penthouse in Superior Ink in the West Village and the penthouse at 145 Hudson Street in Tribeca rounded out the list. [NYT]
