The best things come to those who wait … just ask Shlomi Reuveni and his team from Brown Harris Steven SELECT.
They just closed on their most expensive deal yet at 15 Union Square West.
A combined penthouse and upper unit (PH11 and 10B) were sold to an unnamed foreign buyer for a whopping $16,445,025.
The new owner plans to combine the units to create an über-home of 5,311 s/f with six bedrooms and a 1,385 s/f wraparound terrace.
The sale affirms developer Brack Capital’s decision to stick with Reuveni and his team even after sales at 15 USW stalled following its launch and the subsequent market crash in 2008.
The veteran broker reined in the handful of buyers he already had under contract at the re-imagined Tiffany headquarters and restructured a campaign for a re-launch last fall.
Today’s listing on public recrods marks the second big-ticket sale in recent weeks. A 4,600 s/f five bedroom combination unit was sold for $10.8 million December.
Streeteasy.com lists just four apartments remaining for sale in the luxury building where prices have averaged $2,600 psf.
While the sale is not the earth-shattering $88 million 15 Central Park West record that the Russian billionaire also just closed on, we’re sure Reuveni will take it.
Timothy Rothman of the Corcoran Group brought in the buyer.
“The deal was one of the biggest on the square,” he said. “It’s also going to be the largest single family home in the building.”
