It's Free to Look: Can You Double Your Money at 15 CPW?

There is nothing especially spectacular about this brand-new listing at 15 Central Park West, except that there is a brand-new listing at 15 Central Park West, the building we just can’t stop talking about.

This two-bedroom unit has everything the perspective buyer would expect. “From the exquisite moldings and doors to the custom paint and fine finishes throughout, every detail has been considered in this high-end redesign,” coos Halstead’s Lisa Schuller in her $8.2 million listing.

What’s really phenomenal about that price, though, is that the apartment was available three years ago for half that, according to StreetEasy: $4.44 million. Think you can pick this up and turn it around for $12 million in 2014?
