A two-bedroom unit in the Zeckendorfs’ trophy residential building, 15 Central Park West, hit the market for the conspicuously low price of $7 million.

The newly-listed eighth-floor unit last traded in 2007 for $2.6 million, when it was bought by Miami-based real estate investor Z. Richard Mecik, Curbed reported. Though low for the building, the price still works out to over $5,000 a foot.

Fran Shapiro and Noel Berk of Mercedes Berk have the listing.

The Robert A.M. Stern-designed building is one of New York City’s most exclusive, with celebrities including Denzel Washington and Sting as its inhabitants. It was also the subject of a book by real estate historian Michael Gross, “House of Outrageous Fortune: Fifteen Central Park West, the World’s Most Powerful Address.”

Other 15 Central Park West units currently on the market include a larger two-bedroom on the sixth floor for $10.9 million and a two-bedroom on the 30th floor asking $26 million. [Curbed] — Tess Hofmann
