(November 2010) 15 Central Park West is an apartment building erected in 2006-8 and designed by Robert A.M. Stern. [1] This building is located at the corner of West 61st Street and Central Park West. It was built by developers Arthur and William Lie Zeckendorf, the grandsons of William Zeckendorf. 15 CPW is one of New York's most prestigious addresses.[2] The location has been described as "the most expensive site in Manhattan", ($401 million in 2004) an entire, albeit small, city block on Central Park formerly occupied by the somewhat dilapidated Mayflower Hotel and a vacant lot.[3] The Mayflower was a 1926 Neo-Renaissance building by Emery Roth. The building is divided into two sections, a 19-story tower on Central Park West known as "the house", and a 43-story tower on Broadway joined by a glass-enclosed lobby. It includes such amenities as a private driveway to screen residents from paparazzi,[4] a cinema with 20 seats and 14,000-square-foot (1,300 m2) fitness center which has a 75-foot (23 m) swimming pool.[5] The New York Times architecture critic Paul Goldberger has said 15 CPW was designed to "echo" Central Park West's many notable late Art Deco buildings.[6] He describe the building in Vanity Fair as an "ingenious homage to the classic Candela-designed apartment buildings on Park and Fifth Avenues."[3] He compares 15 CPW to the great apartment houses of the 1920s, 834 Fifth Avenue, 778 Park Avenue, 1040 Fifth Avenue and 740 Park Avenue.[3] 15 Central Park West's limestone facade uses material from "the same quarry that was a source for the Empire State Building". [7] Celebrity residents include or have included Sting, Norman Lear, Denzel Washington, Bob Costas, Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein, former Citigroup executive Sandy Weill, and professional baseball player Alex Rodriguez.[4] References ^ 15 Central Park West Condominiums ^ Window on the Park: New York's Most Prestigious Properties on Central Park (The Master Architect Series) D.
