Here's one more building to add to the master list of buildings that will launch sales this fall: a representative for the Robert A.M. Stern-designed 520 Park Avenue has reached out to say that it, too, will avail itself to the world in the coming months. That is, avail itself to a very small portion of the world; the Zeckendorfs-developed tower will follow in the footsteps of the outrageously expensive 15 Central Park West and 18 Gramercy Park before it. "Simplexes will start 'in the teens,'" the representative writes. Unfortunately they mean the teens of the million variety, "and duplexes around $60 million." Sigh. The 51-story tower will house 23 approximately 4,600-square-foot full-floor homes, seven approximately 9,100-square-foot duplexes, and one 12,400-square-foot triplex penthouse which formerly garnered a price quote of "considerably more than $100 million."
The building's amenities will include those in word like many other buildings'a garden designed by Robert A.M. Stern Architects, a bi-level health and fitness center, a swimming pool room (with hand-carved stone walls), a spa area, a children's playroom, and a screening areabut 520 Park's amenities are probably all sheathed in a micro-fine layer of platinum and anointed with unicorn tears. The building will also offer residents the option of purchasing a private temperature-controlled wine cellar and additional guest suites. The tower on 60th Street between Park and Madison avenues may, just may, out-price its Billionaires Row neighbors.
