How do you follow up to a building as successful as 15 Central Park West? That was the uppermost question on everyone’s minds when the developer-architect team of William Lie Zeckendorf, Arthur Zeckendorf and Robert A.M. Stern began converting the Parkside Evangeline hotel at 18 Gramercy Park South into a luxury condominium. Previously owned by the Salvation Army, the building erected in 1927 was, at one time, a dorm-like residence for young women. Real estate followers knew that the building would need a dramatic makeover to make it conform to the luxury living standards of Manhattan.

New York Times Raves Over Gramercy Luxury Condo One Madison Park, But Is It Too Late?

One Madison, Gramercy Luxury Condos for SaleTaken purely on its merits -- which include a prime Manhattan location at the foot of Madison Square Park, a unique and appealing look, and some of the most luxurious condos for sale in Gramercy -- the new luxury condo One Madison Park is one of the more impressive new condo listings in Manhattan. But taking One Madison Park on its merits misses one very important point: despite being a pretty exceptional Manhattan condominium, One Madison Park is an exceptionally troubled Manhattan condominium. One Madison Park is currently the subject of several ongoing lawsuits and other controversies, which have conspired to bring the final construction on the building's amenities -- the wine cellar, the swimming pool, stuff like that -- to a halt. We wrote about this at the New Construction Manhattan blog back in March, and it remains true today. Of course, all that other stuff we just wrote about One Madison Park -- prime Manhattan location, good looks, stunning condos for sale -- holds true as well. Since New York Times architecture critic Nicolai Ouroussoff's job is to write about a building's aesthetics, it's not surprising that he delivered a very positive review of One Madison Park in today's Times. It seems kind of surprising all the same, though, simply because it has been so long since we've had good news to report about One Madison Park.
