When it comes to all the interesting new architecture popping up along the High Line in West Chelsea, 459 West 18th Street doesn't get much respect. In fact, the black-and-white condo building designed by Della Valle Bernheimer was even nearly erased by its close competition. This should turn a few heads: A new listing for a duplex penthouse with huge windows and views in three directions, not to mention a private roof deck. The 3,447-square-foot 3BR/4BA is asking $6.5 million, but that's only the latest chapter in this penthouse's long saga.
The penthouse, #PH2, is now listed with Sotheby's, its third brokerage. The spread was first listed by Corcoran for $6.9 million in 2007, during the construction phase. That price eventually climbed all the way up to $8.05 million, before heading to Elliman, where the price eventually plunged to the $6.5 million mark it's at now. The Sotheby's listing popped up four days ago, according to StreetEasy. Third time's the charm?
