Art Collector Seeks $39 Million for Manhattan Condo Overlooking Central Park
Retired energy executive and art collector Roger Sant has listed his four-bedroom condominium at the Residences at The Ritz-Carlton on Central Park South for $39 million, Mansion Global reports. The apartment encompasses the entirety of the 28th floor, spanning nearly 6,800 square feet with 13 windows facing the park. Sant purchased the unfinished abode with his late wife, Vicki Sant, in 2005 for $17.5 million and pumped another $13 million into the pied-à-terre to finish it with touches like natural wood detailing and marble floors. Sant is including sculptures by Andy Goldsworthy in the sale.
Robert A.M. Stern’s Ultraluxe South Flagler House in West Palm Beach Expected to Set Sales Records
Famed architect Robert A.M. Stern—known for some of New York’s most iconic modern residential buildings—is bringing South Flagler House to West Palm Beach with prices that are expected to set records, reports Bloomberg. The two 28-story buildings that make up the development are inspired by his 15 Central Park West and 220 Central Park South buildings. “We really want it to count in the way that, say, 15 Central Park West counted when we designed that 15 years ago in Manhattan,” Stern said in his first interview about the project.
The development will feature a limestone facade, and many of the apartments will include private outdoor spaces with views of the Atlantic Ocean. Sales recently launched with prices starting at $10 million for a three-bedroom residence and around $75 million for a duplex penthouse. Completion is slated for 2024.
Brooklyn’s One Prospect Park West Shows Off Stylish Model Residence
One Prospect Park West, the Workstead-designed development that transformed a former Knights of Columbus clubhouse into 64 luxury residences, has debuted its model residence with interiors by cooperative gallery and design studio Colony. The apartment, named CHROMA, employs various colors in different rooms that aim to evoke an “emotional and psychological response” that corresponds to the historical nature of the building. The living room sports marron accents and natural terra-cotta for subtleness, while the bedrooms feature shades of yellow to elicit joy and green to invoke a sense of calm.
“We dreamt up the concept of CHROMA for an ill-fated group show right before the pandemic,” says Colony founder Jean Lin. “I am hopelessly intrigued by the idea of color as a psychological and emotional tool, combining the physical plane with a psycho-emotional response.”
Just five residences remain, including a two-bedroom, 1,556-square-foot home asking $2.6 million and a three-bedroom penthouse with triple exposures, seeking $3.75 million.
