Curbed Poll: Will This Apartment Sell for $80 Million?

New, 26 comments

The first e-mail arrived on July 4th: the $80 million listing for the 40th floor penthouse at 15 Central Park West?the Robert A.M. Stern-designed limestone Jesus?had gone live on Brown Harris Stevens' website. Over the weekend, more e-mails came in regarding the long-awaited listing, a 5,000+ square foot 4BR apartment that also includes a 1,200sqft "ground floor suite" for one lucky maid. The apartment is owned by London-based investor Amit Ben-Haim, who closed on it for $21.9 million. Sure, the ga-ga factor on the asking price is a little less insane given rumors of the $150 million 15 CPW penthouse (and another one at $90 million; the building has 68,000 penthouses), but this listing is out there for the world to see. It's official. It's happening. Feedback has been mixed. Said one reader: "I did not compare it to Schedule A of the Declaration but I don't even think this is a full floor. No way will it get its asking price." Another added that the $15k/sqft asking price becomes a relative bargain at $12,311 if you include the ground floor suite. So, in this era of unaffordable housing, here's the only question that matters:
