Luxury Living in Lincoln Square

Lincoln Square is one of Manhattan's most cultural, historic, and beautiful neighborhoods. Bordered by Central Park and Riverside Boulevard from West 62nd to West 65th streets, Lincoln Sqaure packs more world class culture into three blocks than some whole cities can claim. Lincoln Center and the Metropolitan Opera House are the crown jewels of this neighborhood, offering unparralled dance, film, opera, theater, and music.

If you're seeking a home amongst such world famous art and culture, here's a run down of six of the best condo buildings the Upper West Side neighborhood has to offer.

Columbus Circle Continues To Ascend To the Top

Condo sales in Columbus Circle are robustThere is perhaps no part of Manhattan that is more coveted than Columbus Circle. Downtown neighborhoods like Tribeca and Soho may have the highest average sales prices in Manhattan, but by any measure Columbus Circle, the small area consisting of a few square blocks on the southwestern corner of Central Park, holds its own against those popular areas. After all, anyplace where a penthouse can sell for $88 million – as a pied a terre, no less – must be doing something right. As we’ve written about previously, the most popular condos for sale in Columbus Circle make it clear that the ultra-lux sales market in Manhattan is as strong as it ever was. It’s hard to draw any other conclusion when a penthouse in one of the best newly constructed buildings Manhattan has ever seen is asking for $110 million, and we’d be willing to bet they’ll get it.

Columbus Circle Year End Wrap-Up

Columbus Circle's luxury condominiums are selling for record prices$88 Million. That’s the price at which Sandy Weill, the former president of Citibank, listed his luxury penthouse at 15 Central Park West last month. While such an astronomical price during the slowest sales season of the year might seem foolish, after a mere 3 weeks it looks like he’s found a buyer. This has raised more than a few eyebrows, especially since the previous sales record at 15 CPW was $10 million. This luxury condo building isn’t the only one in Columbus Circle - the small area on West 59th Street between Midtown West and the Upper West Side - that gives us reason to be hopeful. Just across the way, a penthouse at the Time Warner Center Condominium just sold for $6,335 PPSQ. And penthouses at the landmark One57, due to open in 2013, are currently listed at prices upwards of $90 million. Here at New Construction Manhattan, we’ve observed all of the ups and downs of the luxury sales market in Manhattan, but nothing gives us more reason to be hopeful than Columbus Circle.
