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.”

Diane Keaton’s very first NYC apartment was this full-floor co-op in one of the San Remo‘s iconic towers. She bought the Upper West Side pad in the late ’70s after gaining fame in Woody Allen’s “Annie Hall.” At the time, Mary Tyler Moore was living in the other tower, and rumor has it that Warren Beatty found this quite convenient since he was dating both actresses at the same time. In more recent years, the apartment was home to the late Gordon McLeod, the former head of digital publications at Dow Jones. He sold the home to investment banker Larry Slaughter and his wife Constance in 2012 for $13.5 million. They first listed the residence in March 2018 for $17.5 million, but have now re-listed it for a discounted $14.5 million.

In the late ’70s, after hitting it big in Woody Allen’s “Annie Hall,” a 30-year-old Diane Keaton celebrated her Hollywood success by buying a full-floor apartment at the storied Upper West Side co-op the San Remo. Looking back in more recent years, she said “It was one of those remarkable apartments. There was a window on every side. Everything was wide open. That was the beginning of my true interest in architecture.” And now a lucky buyer will have the chance to re-live that dream, as Keaton’s former home–in one of the landmark’s coveted towers–has just hit the market for $17.5 million, reports the Post.
From the Bronx to Brooklyn, architect Emery Roth (1871-1948) left an indelible mark on the architecture and cityscape of New York. Specializing in luxury apartment buildings, the advent of steel-frame construction facilitated Roth’s projection of historicist designs to new heights. While Roth is best known for prestigious projects such as his slew of residences along Central Park West, he also designed numerous middle-class homes and houses of worship. Adding to the impressiveness of his scope of work is the story behind the man.

Internationally renowned architect César Pelli, founder of the firm Pelli Clarke Pelli, just listed his San Remo apartment at 145 Central Park West for $26 million (h/t LLNYC). Pelli and his wife, landscape architect and urban design scholar Diana Balmori, who died last year, purchased the five-bedroom co-op for $17.5 million in 2015 from John Leguizamo’s mother-in-law, Rona Maurer. Pelli is known for skyscrapers like Kuala Lumpur’s Petronas Towers and, closer to home, Brookfield Place in Lower Manhattan, and he’s now hoping to make quite the profit on this incredible spread.

It’s been exactly two years since Demi Moore first listed her incredible San Remo penthouse for $75 million. But after sitting idly on the market for 14 months, she reduced the price way down to $59 million, and The Real Deal now got wind that she’s finally sold the 17-room triplex for an even more reduced $45 million. Despite the major price chop, this is still the biggest sale ever at the iconic Central Park West co-op.
Last April, Demi Moore listed her triplex penthouse at celeb-favorite the San Remo for a jaw-dropping $75 million. She bought the 7,000-square-foot, 17-room Central Park West residence in 1990 with ex-husband Bruce Willis and then proceeded to update it in a “Southwestern Mission motif dominated by cherry wood.” But after 14 months on the market, The Real Deal reports that the actress has slashed the asking price by $16 million, bringing it down to $59 million.

Starchitect César Pelli and his wife Diana Balmori have bought a $17.5 million apartment at the San Remo, according to city records released today. And the seller of the 4,900-square-foot, 12-room residence is Rona Maurer, John Leguizamo’s mother-in-law who was recently involved in a lawsuit claiming she was covering up the sale of the home to keep her stepdaughter from getting any of the profits.
The corner unit has all the details one would hope for from the Upper West Side‘s most prestigious co-op, including 65 feet of Central Park views, soaring ceilings, herringbone floors, three entertaining rooms, and a marble entry gallery.

We learned on Friday that Demi Moore’s triplex penthouse at the San Remo would be hitting the market for $75 million, and now the listing has finally gone live, reports Curbed. While last week’s exclusive story in the Times revealed many details about the 7,000-square-foot Central Park West residence which Moore bought in 1990 with ex-husband Bruce Willis, we only had black-and-white photos of the apartment from 1937. There aren’t a ton of new pictures, but they show how the couple updated the Emory Roth-designed home in a “Southwestern Mission motif dominated by cherry wood” and give us a look at the unparalleled views.
