Consider the city's per-square-foot sales price record officially shattered: the sale of 15 Central Park West developer William Zeckendorf's 41st-floor condo has closed. But the $40 million transaction?Manhattan's second most expensive of the year, after the $44 million sale of the Duke Semans Mansion?still hasn't broken the $10,000/square foot barrier. The Journal reports that the final price actually comes out to $9,940 per square foot, not counting the terrace. We doubt Zeckendorf minds coming in below $10K, since he only paid $10.7 million for the apartment himself. The city's second-priciest sale on a per-square-foot basis is also 15 CPW, with the 2008 sale of a $9,486/square foot apartment on the 38th floor. Okay, Limestone Jesus, you've proved your place on the top of the luxury heap once again. Now how about you let some other buildings have a turn?
