Last August, amid a flurry of reports by property gossips on both coasts and around the world, steel magnate Leroy Schecter wanted $95,000,000 for his not yet fully-combined two-unit combo-condo at the hideously high-priced 15 Central Park West building in New York City. He hacked the price to $85 million in early April (2013) before he took it off the market a few weeks later.
The 35th floor aerie is back on the market for $85 million but it's also, as first reported in the New York Observer, up for grabs as a rental for a throat constricting $125,000 per month. The now combined, suburban macmansion-sized apartment has, according to the floor plan included with current online listings, 4-5 bedrooms and five full and two half bathrooms plus four park-facing rooms (living, dining, library, master bedroom), three exposures (east, south and west), two laundry rooms, and more than a dozen closets?many of them walk-ins.
Mister Schecter, a well-known real estate baller, was recently outed as the $25 million buyer of the 11,000-plus square foot Rothschild mansion on E. 70th Street. The octogenarian real estate baller also owns a train station sized water front mansion with 7 bedrooms and 14 toilets on the prestigious, guard-gated Indian Creek Island in Miami Beach that he listed in May, 2012 for $45 million and reduced in May, 2013 to a still sky-high $42 million.
