First Supertall Tower on Billionaires Row, One57, Now 90% Sold

One57, the first supertall tower to rise along West 57th Street, is 90 percent sold, The Real Deal reports.

15 Central Park West Penthouse Sells One Day After Going Into Contract

A 5,902-square-foot duplex penthouse at the Robert A.M. Stern-designed 15 Central Park West sold for $46.67 million one day after going into contract, The Real Deal has learned. The seller was Dr. Lindsay Rosenwald, CEO of Fortress Biotech, who purchased the 18th- and 19th-floor residence for $30.5 million in 2008. The buyer’s identity is shielded through a limited liability company. Rosenwald listed the residence for $65 million in September 2019 because he “just wasn’t using it,” according to listing broker Felise Gross of Brown Harris Stevens. In addition to the five-bedroom, six-and-a-half-bathroom residence overlooking Central Park, the sale included a studio apartment for staff, a wine cellar, and two storage units.

San Francisco’s once rugged and rocky Yerba Buena Island is in the middle of a transformation into a community of high-end condos, full-floor flats, and townhouses flanked by five miles of hiking trails—a redevelopment that has been in the works for 20 years. The 173-acre island’s residential development hit a major milestone this year as sales of its 266 residences have commenced. SFGate reports that The Bristol, the island’s 124-unit condo building, has attracted the most attention to date. Chris Meany, partner of developer Wilson Meany, says that buyers are drawn to the building’s “unique combination of high-end amenities and dramatic views with unlimited access to the island’s open green space.” Condos in The Bristol range in price from $800,000 for a 630-square-foot studio to $3 million for a nearly 2,300-square-foot three-bedroom.
