Star Architect, Superstar Condominium: I.M. Pei-Designed Luxury Condo The Centurion Looks Like A Hit

The Centurion NYC Luxury Condos for SaleThe recent boom in luxury condo construction saw plenty of new entrants hit the Manhattan skyline, with more than a few of these new condo listings bearing the brands of some heavyweight architects. With all the attention given to deserving star-architect condominium listings such as Jean Nouvel's Nouvel Apartments (in Chelsea) and Robert A.M. Stern's 15 Central Park West (at, yes, 15 Central Park West, on the Upper West Side), as well as Frank Gehry's luxury rental at 8 Spruce Street, I.M. Pei's first NYC condominium seemed to slip through the cracks somewhat. But The Centurion, the first Manhattan condominium from the Pritzker Prize-winning architect, is belatedly getting the attention it deserves -- and selling out its condos for sale at a brisk rate. It took longer than usual, but this superstar architect's first Manhattan condominium is increasingly looking like one of the superstar apartment listings in Midtown West.
