Central Park South Condominium Market Report for September 2011
This CPS market report is going to contain the current availabilities for 2 bedroom and larger condominium apartments for sale on Central Park South. Central Park South is located on 59th Street from 5th Avenue on the East to 8th Avenue on the West. There are a variety of reasons that make Central Park South condos some of the most desirable real estate in all of Manhattan but in my opinion the commanding views of Central Park could be the most desirable feature.
From Central Park South you see both the city views of both the Upper West Side and Upper East Side along with an unparalleled view of Central Park right in front of you.
There are not that many condominium buildings along Central Park South, just a handful, including 110 Central Park South, 100 Central Park South, 106 Central Park South, 160 Central Park South. You also have the Plaza Residences at the corner of 5th Avenue and Central Park South.
The two bedroom and larger market ranges in price from $24,000,000 for a 5 bedroom apartment for sale at 110 Central Park South to $1,500,000 2 bedroom condominium for sale at 160 Central Park South. Other than size the most important feature of the apartment that will determine price is going to be view. Even though you buy a condominium in a building located right on Central Park South does not mean that you will have a view of Central Park from your apartment. The price difference for the same size apartment in the same building with and without Central Park views can be quite dramatic. There is only so much frontage in any building for Central Park views and ultimately some apartments will not have the Central Park exposure. Even the apartments with Central Park views will be configured in a way that typically the living room and dining room’s will have the Central Park Views and the bedrooms will be facing the back of the building. There are some apartments that will have Master Bedrooms facing the Park and those apartments will be quite rare and in a higher price point.
Another important characteristic of living in a Central Park South condominium is that the views from the back of the building facing South will typically not be an open city skyline view unless you are on a higher floor, possibly 15 or higher(different for every building). So the bedroom views could be of the back of another building.
