As prices at 15 Central Park West reach for the record books, the listing history of #27A is not entirely surprising. The apartment first sold (to an LLC) in 2008 for $11,709,875. The buyer relisted the 3,100-square-foot 3BR, 3.5BA in October for $25 million. Maybe news of the $40 million buy on the 41st floor sparked our seller's epiphany that he was aiming too low?or maybe it's about competition?because the apartment got a $2 million PriceUpper at the end of November, for a fresh ask of $27 million. The apartment's still on the market, so the listing just got some minor tune-ups, perhaps to draw in buyers' attention. The $8,709/square foot ask is a bit high compared to the current listing average of $6,264/square foot, but hey, is any price not within the real of possibility at 15 CPW? The other thing these photos are good for: some concrete data on the relationship between mood lighting and pricey sales.
