New York can’t get enough of 15 Central Park West.
Developers keep hiring Robert A.M. Stern, the starchitect who designed New York’s hottest new residential tower. And in addition to his name, at least three of these developments are going up in the same retro-chic style.
One of the new projects is a tower going up at 30 Park Place, developed by Larry Silverstein.
Silverstein’s new project looks similar to 15 CPW, even though it’ll be slightly taller than the Zeckendorfs’ building.
Stern is also the architect behind a 64-story tower at 220 Central Park South and a 51-story building at 520 Park Avenue.
Arguably, 15 Central Park West is the most successful new tower to open in the city, with buyers spending more money per square foot there than in any other building. At another Zeckendorf-Stern cooperation at 18 Gramercy Park two years ago, the penthouse was sold to Houston Rockets owner Leslie Alexander for $42 million. [NYDN] – Claire Moses
