The NYDN is reporting that several of the most expensive apartments in Manhattan are cutting their prices including a penthouse in Tribeca where the price is being slashed from $40mm to under $30mm for a 7000+/- space. At the same time, while other units incuding one at The Pierre are also slashing their prices, other developers are taking aim at the $100mm record set this year by the sale of an apartment at One57 on Billionaire’s Row.
Those developers inlcude 550 Madison aka the Sony building condo conversion where an apartment will reportedly ask $150mm, 520 Park avenue which will have a penthouse asking $130mm and 220 CPS where its’ top asking price is rumored to be $175mm!
From the same team that brought 15 CPW comes this 54 story building with ony 31 units. Zeckendorf development together with the starchitect of starchitects, Robert A.M. Stern bring this 54 story limestone building to life on Park avenue. Well, the building is on the side street but the address thanks to air rights bought from the church gained the address 520 Park avenue.
Prices start around $16mm for one floor and duplexes around $67mm according the CurbedNY. The penthouse is set to ask a cool $130mm. The building is trying to recreate the success the developer and architect had at 15 CPW which recorded sales over $2 billion and started this whole new construction with prewar exteriors.
The amenities are not that different than 432 Park avenue with a fitness center, garden, lap pool…

That was a different market and 2015 will be the year with much more competition for new luxury developments in Manhattan. 6500 units altogether are set to come to the market in all price points.
