Denzel Buys at 15 C.P.W.

washington denzel Denzel Buys at 15 C.P.W.

So Denzel Washington has apparently given up on the idea of living in a church-turned-condominium, and has grabbed an apartment at 15 Central Park West, according to the Wall Street Journal. (And it’s nice that The Journal is free this week so we can actually link to their stuff).

Mr. Washington’s 3,000-square-foot pad includes three bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a terrace (facing the park).

And how is 15 C.P.W. stacking up against the nearby Time Warner Center in terms of early sales? Pretty good, if you ask a Zeckendorf:

At the Central Park West condo, two-thirds of its 200 units have received signed binding contracts since going on sale in September, its developer, Zeckendorf Development, says. In comparison, the nearby Time Warner Center took four years, until March, to sell its 201 units.
