A 2,855-square-foot unit is up for grabs in one of only a few condominiums located on the prime stretch of Central Park West.

And it has a coveted perk that’s hard to find in the middle of a bustling city: Park views from nearly every window!

The corner unit is located directly across the street from Central Park, between 88th Street and 89th Street on the Upper West Side, surrounded by lush greenery that can make you forget you’re in the very heart of one of the world’s busiest cities.

The condo unit is in the 279 Central Park West building, a 24-story, full-service condo designed by acclaimed architect and designer Costas Kondylis.

If the name sounds familiar, that’s because the prolific architect helped shape the New York skyline, designing over 85 buildings, many of them for former U.S. President Donald Trump. Specializing in luxury buildings and residential skyscrapers, Constantine “Costas” Kondylis was President Trump’s go-to designer, before passing away in 2018.

The 3 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom duplex home — listed for $7,750,000 with Harriet Kaufman of Coldwell Banker Warburg — offers kitchen and entertaining areas on the lower level and private bedrooms on the upper level.

The 279 Central Park West condo welcomes guests and residents with a charming foyer with a powder room, before leading them into an expansive 35-foot living and dining area, adorned with oversized bay windows that open up to panoramic Central Park views.

The oversized kitchen features top-of-the-line appliances, plenty of storage and counter space, and a large eat-in area with a south-facing window.

An elegant staircase then leads to the upper level, where we find the condo’s 3 bedrooms (all featuring en-suite baths) and a home office.

Future owners of the 279 Central Park West condo will get to enjoy the building’s many amenities, which include a gym, indoor/ outdoor playroom, bike room, and private storage.

But the biggest draw is by far the building’s stellar location and proximity to Central Park and all the best New York City has to offer.

And if extra bragging points are needed, a Rockefeller also lived in the building.
