CityRealty is out with its quarterly ranking of the most expensive condominium buildings in New York City, and billionaire fortress 15 Central Park West has once again taken the top spot.

The building, home to a long list of bankers, celebrities and titans of business, including Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein and Sting, has held the top spot for a full year, with the average apartment there selling for $6,288 per square foot, and the highest-selling unit this quarter going for $8,556 per square foot, according to CityRealty.

A former aide to the world’s wealthiest man, Carlos Slim, just sold a pair of apartments there for $29 million, according to the New York Observer. And earlier this year, a penthouse there sold for $48 million, making it the priciest sale of Q2.

Overall, CityRealty found a sharp increase in the price of luxury condos in New York City over the past year. During Q2, 204 apartments were sold in the 100 buildings that make up the company’s index, at an average price of $2,333. That’s a 22 percent increase from the same quarter in 2013.

Below, the top 20 condo buildings in New York City, according to CityRealty:
