NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A building considered an architectural masterpiece on Central Park West cost $1 billion to build and had $2 billion in sales before it was even completed.

More than a decade later, it’s still one of the most notable addresses in the city.

Fifteen Central Park West is a full block of luxury. It was one of the most prestigious new developments when it was built in 2007, and that legacy continues today.

“This is an incredible penthouse, corner unit, a duplex with almost 6,000 square feet inside and more than 1,000 square feet outside,” Brown Harris Stevens CEO Bess Freedman told CBS2’s Natalie Duddridge.

There’s a distinct air of tradition, in terms of style and architectural design, but the sheer element of luxury living is the prominent impression.
