Cool Listings, Upper West Side

When an apartment at the iconic Robert A.M. Stern-designed 15 Central Park West hits the market, a certain kind of discerning buyer takes notice. There’s a mansion-sized 8,000-square-foot combo unit available in the coveted building for $58,000,000, so this available half-floor two-bedroom residence seems like a downright steal at $13,450,000. With interiors designed by Axel Vervoordt, the 26th-floor unit spans 2,367 square feet, with the building’s signature high ceilings and, best of all, views that sweep out over Central Park, the Hudson River, and beyond.

An apartment in the El Dorado at 300 Central Park West is an enviable enough thing on its own, even without the added cachet of belonging to the estate of Hester and Harold Diamond, owners of one of the world’s finest art collections and parents of Mike Diamond of Beastie Boys fame, whose childhood home this was, Picassos and all. Ms. Diamond, who passed away in 2020 at 91, was an art dealer and collector whose collection of Old Masters and Modernist art, according to the New York Times, included Picasso, Mondrian, Rothko, and many more. Asking $19,500,000, the duplex co-op in one of New York City’s most venerable buildings is museum-sized at 6,300 square feet with 800 square feet of terrace space and peerless park and skyline views.

This duplex at The Beresford at 211 Central Park West possesses one of Manhattan’s finest Central Park-facing terraces. The sprawling Upper West Side co-op in the celebrity-studded classic Emery Roth-designed pre-war building was home to Broadway and screen talent Adolph Green (he wrote “Singin’ In The Rain”) and Tony Award-winning actor Phyllis Newman. In addition to the sprawling duplex and 600-square-foot terrace, $24 million will assure you dazzling panoramic views of the Park, Central Park South, and the city skyline. And next door, you’ll find Jerry Seinfeld’s place.

This combined two-unit co-op in the architectural gem that is the Emery Roth-designed San Remo at 145 Central Park West (where Demi Moore’s former pad just hit the market for $50M), asking $25 million, has the Central Park and Manhattan skyline views you’d expect from the iconic building’s north tower. Inside, the over-5,500-square-foot corner residence is just as impressive, with an architect-led renovation and interiors by renowned designer Bunny Williams that has preserved the home’s Art Deco character while sparing no expense on modern convenience. The 14-room home, currently owned by money manager Peter W. May and his wife, Leni May (h/t New York Times), is configured as three bedrooms and a library with an additional study and a media room.

Demi Moore may have sold her remarkable apartment in the San Remo at 145 Central Park West for $45 million in 2007–two years after first attempting to sell at a whopping $75M–but the rare penthouse in one of the venerable building’s two beaux-arts towers is still a star. And the south tower triplex is for sale again, this time asking $50 million, the Wall Street Journal reports. As if the 8,000-square-foot sky mansion didn’t have enough of its own cachet, neighbor Bono–who bought his apartment from Steve Jobs–can always add more. The seller is known only via the LLC “M2 Trust.”

Even if this one-bedroom co-op at 22 West 76th Street were just another pre-war loft-like home, its location on one of the Upper West Side‘s prettiest blocks just seconds from Central Park would make it a find at $599,000. The fact that it sits within an elegant historic limestone townhouse with a gracefully curving front makes it even more unique.

As Related CEO and Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross prepares to move into the penthouse at one of his most recent developments, 35 Hudson Yards, he’s first unloading one of his older properties at another one of the company’s Skidmore Owings & Merrill-designed building, the Time Warner Center. (The Real Deal’s roundup of his properties shows Ross’s penchant for “getting high off his own supply.”) First reported by the Wall Street Journal, Ross has listed the 80th-floor condo he shares with his wife, jewelry designer Kara Ross, for a staggering $75 million—one of the most expensive properties on the market in New York City.

A community board on Tuesday approved a plan to build a new protected bike lane along Central Park West, about one year after a cyclist was killed by a truck there. As West Side Rag reported, Manhattan’s Community Board 7 voted in favor of the city’s plan, which consists of a northbound protected lane from 59th to 110th Street. Ahead of the bike lane’s construction, 400 parking spaces will be eliminated on Central Park West.

Built in 1903, the 12-story building at 27 West 67th Street is the oldest of eight that comprise the West 67th Street Artists’ Colony Historic District. The studio buildings–which now find themselves next to Central Park, Lincoln Center, and the Time Warner Center on the Upper West Side–were built by a group of artists to provide live/work space on what was then a block of ramshackle stables. Asking $4,950,000, this graceful pre-war duplex is as much an important part of New York City history as it is creative and cool. The stylishly renovated three-bedroom co-op was, until 2007, the residence of graphic designer Milton Glaser, creator of the “I ♥ NY” campaign among other iconic designs and co-founder of “New York” magazine. Another unusual thing about this pretty property: It comes with an additional room on the building’s top floor, perfect for a gym, home office–or artist’s studio.

Antonio Banderas has just listed his park-front co-op in the Prasada at 50 Central Park West for $7.95 million. The actor purchased the nine-room co-op for $3.995 million in 2005, with his wife, Melanie Griffith, according to the Wall Street Journal. The couple divorced in 2016 and Banderas, who is starring in the upcoming “Life Itself” with Olivia Wilde and Oscar Isaac, kept the stylish Upper West Side home.
