Leroy Schecter, the chairman of steel manufacturer Marino-Ware Industries, has slashed the price on his 15 Central Park West apartment. After originally listing the combination unit for an ambitious $95 million — before reducing that to $85 million in April and briefly attempting to rent it for $125,000 a month — Schecter is now asking $70 million.
Brown Harris Stevens’ Paula Del Nunzio is now marketing the 35th-floor, 6,000-square-foot condo. Schecter has newly renovated the unit, which features 75 feet of window frontage facing Central Park, 70 feet of Hudson River frontage and 60 feet of Columbus Circle views, according to the New York Observer.
Last October, it was revealed that Schecter was the buyer of a six-story, 11,300-square-foot townhouse at 41 East 70th Street, between Park and Madison avenues. Paula Del Nunzio represented the seller on that deal. [NYO] –Christopher Cameron
