Self-Proclaimed Next 15 Central Park West Is Poised To Launch
http://ny.curbed.com/archives/2014/0..._to_launch.php

Quote:
"Simplexes will start 'in the teens,'" the representative writes. Unfortunately they mean the teens of the million variety, "and duplexes around $60 million." Sigh. The 51-story tower will house 23 approximately 4,600-square-foot full-floor homes, seven approximately 9,100-square-foot duplexes, and one 12,400-square-foot triplex penthouse which formerly garnered a price quote of "considerably more than $100 million."

The Zeckendorfs are delusionsal. In the short-term, their tower will be next to utterly dilapidated, eyesore townhouses filled with cheap delis, etc.

In the longer term, those buildings and the 1950s office building on Madison will be replaced with an enormous tower that blocks the Zeckendorf's views.

The days are numbered for the 4 townhouses and the office to the west of them, all as seen below.

Per Curbed, the triplex penthouse will ask $130 MILLION!!

Quote:
There's a new most expensive apartment in New York City. At least, there's about to be. The Zeckendorf-developed, Robert A.M. Stern-designed tower that's on the rise at 520 Park Avenue will boast a penthouse that will ask a mind-boggling $130,000,000. At the intersection of 60th Street, the limestone tower's topper will be a triplex totaling 12,394 square feet. It will have a 1,257-square-foot terrace, Central Park views. Arthur Zeckendorf told Bloomberg about the bonkers pricetag in an interview today, adding that sales will begin early next year, with completion slated for 2017. (520 Park's 31 apartments were originally set to hit the market this fall.)

Tear your eyeballs away from that ridiculous asking price for a moment: the rest of the building is made up of 23 full-floor units of about 4,600 square feet, which will start at $16.2 million. Seven almost-10,000-foot-duplexes will start at $67 million.

Please note that the duplexes' planned listing price puts them squarely in the list of the 25 most expensive apartments for sale in the city right now. The penthouse, when it lists, will unseat the current record-holder: a trio of uncombined penthouse apartments at Battery Park City's Ritz-Carlton residences, which wants a mere $118.5M.
A couple of thoughts. First, I don't know that intersection particularly, but if it's as unpleasant as some have suggested here, then this asking price seems just ludicrous, doesn't it? Maybe they're banking on the Billionaire's Row makeover currently happening on W. 57th to spread there?

Second, it hadn't occurred to me before, but looking at the renders, why in the holy hell would the 1,257 sq. foot terrace face AWAY from the Park?

That's still pocket change for most billionaires.

60th & Park is about as good a location as one can find in NYC. I have no idea what that previous comment was about.

If you want to be hyper-technical, probably the very best location along Park would be around 70th and Park, but you could probably never build a building of this height in that location (because of landmarks laws, height regulations, crazy NIMBYs and the like). So, given this reality, 60th & Park is about as good as it gets in terms of skyscraper living along this corridor.

And I bet you they get these prices. I wouldn't even be surprised if prices were raised. They're already getting these prices across the park at 15 CPW, and that's an inferior building that's shorter and 10 years older.

Well a penthouse which will overlook Central Park, see the ESB and Chrysler, as well as having a clear view of the new 57th street towers, I can see why!

This street is the exception to the pristine nature of the UES. Four small, dilapidated tenements with cheap nail salons and bodegas are adjacent to the new building on the west. For now, they make the area look lousy. In time, they, and the 1950s office building next to them will be razed and a tower much taller than 520 Park will be built, which will eclipse 520's views.

That price even made the headlines here. Amazing.

Is the facade going to be real limestone or concrete?

With this, 30 Park, 432 Park and 232 CPS there definitely seems to be a change in tide with some big projects in Manhattan right now. I love how they seem to be keeping in touch with the architecture that is so distinctively New York. There'll always be glass and I love it but any kind of stone just looks "the part" in NY.

Looks like an old Cathedral with some slight futuristic elements in there!

The decorative motif looks familiar....

Funny stuff. I wouldn't be surprised if there was some subtle psychoanalysis at play in those wall designs... I imagine some interior architect describing the effect of the soft-lit, humid space as "womb-like."

Anyway, I'm going to reiterate what was honestly most baffling to me about this project: the penthouse terrace oriented towards the East River instead of towards Central Park. That just seems like a huge mistake! Even if the idea is that the master bedroom or living room should have unobstructed views of the park, at the very least you'd want the terrace facing South for the Midtown views and some peripheral Park views, no?

My only guess is that it has something to do with the cantilevered East side of the tower somehow being better suited to the terrace (or I guess, not suited to support the crown if the orientation was reversed?) ... anyone have an idea why they did that? If I'm an appraiser looking at the terrace, I'm knocking off that $30 Million right off the bat.

Zeckendorf unveils newest luxury tower
http://www.rew-online.com/2014/03/25...-luxury-tower/

Quote:
The building will be entirely clad in Indiana limestone articulated with French balconies and stone detailing evocative of the great New York apartment buildings of the 1920’s and 1930’s. A multi-story crown tops the building.
Quote:
“520 Park Avenue will be an elegant addition to this Upper East Side neighborhood. Robert A.M. Stern again has contributed a building design that echoes the best of New York City architecture in a 21st century development. When we built 15 Central Park West also designed by Robert A.M. Stern, we then wanted to create a similar iconic limestone residence for the Upper East Side,” said Arthur Zeckendorf.
