Call it 15 Central Park West's good deed for the year. Now that developer William Zeckendorf's 41st-floor condo has sold for a city high of $10,259/square foot, it's freed up the rest of Central Park West's top-shelf apartments to describe themselves as bargains. Take the new listing for #PH21A at 279 Central Park West: "Most glamorous Penthouse Condominium available in years... and not at $10,259 psf!" Burn! With a $9.9 million asking price and 2,800 square feet for its 4BRs and 3.5BAs, the penthouse works out to the low, low price of $3,535/square foot. If any prospective buyers aren't swayed by the better-for-your-wallet argument, perhaps this, from the brokerbabble, will change minds: "If you do not get struck by the views and the wrap-around planted terrace as you enter, you may be able to cross the gallery towards the entertaining flow and Master Bedroom, or to the 3 additional bedrooms....And you may enjoy playing hide-an-sick with your children in this circular flow!" You may indeed.
