It seems that sellers at 15 Central Park West are undaunted by Hurricane Sandy. A two-bedroom apartment on the 16th floor went on the market for $8.5 million, almost twice as much as the owner paid for the sponsor unit in 2008, the New York Observer reported.

Listing brokers Hideko Horiguchi and Mika Sakamoto, both of Sotheby’s International Realty, said they picked up the listing shortly before the storm hit but were unable to put it in the system until now. “It has a beautiful open city view. It’s just a beautiful apartment and apartments in this building rarely come on the market.” Horiguchi told the Observer.

The seller, Kalawati Company LLC, paid $4.7 million for the unit. It is the cheapest one listed in the building by $1.5 million, the paper said, but is currently home to a tenant.

Along with the typical luxury features (marble bathroom, Sub Zero fridge), the unit comes with what is, these days, a rare perk: electricity. [NYO]Leigh Kamping-Carder
