Things have been quiet at 15 Union Square West, the luxury condo conversion and glassy makeover of the historic onetime home of Tiffany's. So quiet, in fact, that some of the listings have disappeared from brokerage Brown Harris Stevens' website without making a peep. But last week the deed was filed on the building's first big closing, not counting a $1.1 million deal back in June way before the building could be called close to finished (perhaps it had something to do with 15 USW's promised delivery date). Unit #10 sold in late November for $7.128 million. Unfortunately a lawyer signed all the papers on the buyer's behalf, so the building's first blockbuster buyer remains anonymous. If the unit numbers remain consistent with the early plans, the sales price breaks down to an eye-popping $2,500 per square foot for the 2,849-square-foot 3BR, 3.5BA pad.
As for the little matter of the vanishing listings, the folks at the 15 USW sales office tell us they've merely taken some listings off the market while they move the model unit and prepare for a grand re-opening sometime next year. In the meantime, take a look at the floorplan for the spoken-for #10. Will other buyers follow suit and sign on the dotted line at prices negotiated pre-meltdown?
