A two-bedroom condo in famed architect Robert A.M. Stern’s celebrity-filled 15 Central Park West takes in panoramic views of the park.

The apartment sits on the 27th floor of “the Tower” of the two-building complex, overlooking the iconic green space and the Manhattan skyline that borders it.

The building was constructed in the mid-2000s and has been home to numerous celebrities and public figures, including actors Denzel Washington and Robert De Niro, musician Sting, baseball player Alex Rodriguez and former Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein.

While the building is relatively new, its limestone facade was sourced from the same quarry as the Empire State Building and the New Classical style complements its neighbors on the iconic street. It also has a long list of amenities, including a 75-foot pool, 14,000-square-foot fitness center, basement wine cellar with tasting bar and 20-seat screening room.

The unit features 11-foot ceilings and tall windows that frame the protected view. The more than 2,300 square feet of space includes two large en-suite bedrooms and a half bathroom. The master bedroom has a large walk-in closet outfitted with shelving and inset lighting, along with a modern light fixture.

“It’s the ideal pied-à-terre,” says listing agent Thomas Duger of Elegran.

Duger noted that the position toward the middle of the 43-story tower provides a great vantage point.

“Sometimes, when you’re too high up, you lose perspective of the park,” Duger shares.

The current owners have renovated the apartment, and finishes include light-colored herringbone wood floors, detailed moldings and a half bathroom with a full slab of onyx marble.

“To have a new-ish condo in a building of this nature, there’s nothing like it,” Duger says.

The apartment was recently listed for $13.5 million.

The building is in the center of cultural life in Manhattan, close to Broadway theaters and Lincoln Center, and blocks from the Museum of Modern Art and the American Museum of Natural History.
