Douglas Elliman has officially launched sales for a new Chetrit Group and Clipper Equities building at 135 West 52nd Street.

The prices on the 109 units in the building – a Cetra/Ruddy designed, 47-story glass tower – range from $1.5M for one-bedrooms to $15 million and up for penthouses. The building will have five penthouse apartments.The property, which is located on the corner of the 6 ½ Avenue Pedestrian Arcade, is expected to be completed in late spring or early summer of 2015, said Elliman’s Janice Chang.

Asking price is about $2,000 per square foot, Chang said. Two-bedroom corner apartments are priced around $3 million she said. A 3,725-square foot, three-bedroom with a library will cost $8.5 million. The penthouses aren’t yet available for sale, Chang said.

Cetra/Ruddy is in charge of the conversion. The design will transform the building from a Rafael Vinoly-designed hotel to a condo tower that also includes 12,000 square feet of amenities throughout the building.

    not worth it. 2k per foot? I might as well live in a soulful building.

      everything is glass and steel now. there is not much character and anything truly unique being developed anymore. 432 park is an interesting design and very symmetrical, but even then…nothing that takes my breath away.

    The rendering they did is a ridiculous attempt at pretending this will have CP views.
