Vornado’s 220 Central Park South is one of the more mysterious developments in New York City, with information about the Robert A.M. Stern-designed building coming out in dribs and drabs. No listings were made public, even as the wealthiest of the wealthy snapped up apartments in the condo tower.
But since closings began last year, real estate gawkers have gleaned some information about the building, like the fact that it’s home to the most expensive residence ever sold in the United States. And now, we can finally get a peek inside one of the building’s apartments: A three-bedroom unit on the 40th floor is now on the rental market, asking a whopping $59,000/month.
The interiors were designed by Thierry Despont. Anyone familiar with RAMSA’s work at the firm’s other pricey Manhattan condos (such as 15 Central Park West) will pick up on similarities in the design. It’s all very traditional: There’s white oak herringbone flooring, custom millwork, a marble island in the kitchen, and even more marble—white and black—covering the bathrooms and powder room. The oligarch vibes are strong.
Practically speaking, the apartment has three bedrooms—each of which has an en-suite bathroom—and a powder room. The master bedroom has a dressing room and a walk-in closet, and there are high ceilings throughout.
And the views, of course, are spectacular: The master bedroom and great room both have huge windows that overlook Central Park, and there are southern exposures
The rental at 220 Central Park South is listed with Corcoran’s Carrie Chiang, Loy Carlos, and Andres Perea-Garzon.
Correction: An earlier version of this piece stated that Robert A.M. Stern Architects was the interior designer for 220 Central Park South; Thierry Despont’s firm is working on the interiors. Curbed regrets the error.
