NYC's most expensive residence
Wall Street titans and rock stars are calling NYC's newest luxury residence home, with an average apartment costing $10 million.

(Fortune Magazine) -- It's the latest entry into the annals of ridiculous wealth, and some of Wall Street's biggest names are getting ready to move in: Brand-new 15 Central Park West has been causing a fuss ever since it sold out its $2 billion worth of real estate in less than two years. Hedge funder Daniel Loeb raised eyebrows when he paid $45 million, or $4,200 a square foot, for his pad on the "tower" side two years ago, but it turned out to be a value play: Sandy Weill paid $6,200 a square foot for his.

Sandy Weill "House" side penthouse,$42.4 million Weill's new spread has four bedrooms and a 1,979-foot wraparound terrace.

Daniel Loeb "Tower" side, $45 million The price reportedly paid by hedge fund manager Loeb set a record when he was one of the first buyers two years ago; now it's a bargain.

Erin Callan "Tower" side, price not available The Lehman banker led the Fortress and Blackstone IPOs and was just named the bank's next CFO.

Lloyd Blankfein $27 million (reportedly) Goldman's Whitehall real estate investment fund is a 30% investor in the building.  To top of page
