A more detailed floor plan has been released for steel tycoon Leroy Schecter’s combined apartment at 15 Central Park West, which he hopes to sell for $95 million.
The listing by CORE Managing Director Emily Beare reveals that the two-for-one condo on the 35th floor will feature five bedrooms, five bathrooms and two half-bathrooms, with an option to turn one bedroom into a large den. The foyer leads directly into a library, flanked by a dining room and living room, all with prime views of Central Park. The master bedroom suite will look directly over the park and includes a sitting room, dressing area and grand master bathroom.
Schecter, the chairman of Marino/Ware Industries, paid $18.9 million for the original two apartments and tried to sell them in 2010 for a combined $55 million. Previously, the two units rented for a total $70,000 per month to Yankee star Alex Rodriguez and Cendant Corp. founder Henry Silverman.
Here is what Schecter’s $95 million baby will look like after renovation:
Below is the floor plan for the original two apartments, for comparison:
Correct us if we’re wrong, but we don’t see much difference between the two. Did Schecter literally just tear down a wall between the condos? Why, it’s enough to make us scoop up our surplus millions and mosey down to 50 Central Park West, where a three-bedroom apartment on the 35th floor is also on the market for the same price.
