15 CPW spread hits market for $59K a month

Apartment could appeal to One57 buyers waiting for the Extell tower to be completed

Hot on the heels of real estate author Michael Gross’ assertion that Extell Development’s One57 will never live up to the success of Zeckendorf Development’s much-beloved limestone towers at 15 Central Park West, a luxe rental at the latter has come on the market asking $59,000 per month.

The four-bedroom unit came on the market on Saturday, Streeteasy.com shows. Listed by Blu Realty’s Vince Rocco, Shane Shimon and Denise Rosner, it is available for a minimum of one year. The property is currently the most expensive rental unit available at the building.

A one-year stay may be ideal for buyers at Gary Barnett’s One57. As The Real Deal previously reported, buyers at the 95-unit, Christian de Portzamparc-designed tower at 157 West 57th Street may need a place to cool their heels until construction is completed in 2013. Rentals at nearby 15 Central Park West, the Time Warner Center and The Plaza Hotel & Residences are convenient options.

The 3,478-square-foot unit is on the eighth floor of the building and features 50 feet of frontage directly on Central Park. It has 10-foot ceilings, herringbone floors and access to the building amenities: a fitness center, a 75-foot lap pool, a private dining room, a screening room and spa treatment facilities.

The property is owned by Victory East LLC; the limited liability company purchased it in 2007 for $11.15 million, public records show. The managing member of the LLC is listed on public records as Gerald Ross, an attorney at the law firm of Fryer & Ross. Rocco declined to comment on the ownership, saying only that the unit is owned by an investor.

The unit will be available as of February 1, according to the listing.
