The former Upper West Side home of Goldman Sachs chairman and chief executive officer David Solomon has come on the market for $24 million.
The investment banking executive owned the fourth-floor co-op at the exclusive San Remo building for more than a decade before selling it in 2016 for $21.5 million, records show. Since then, the residence at 145 Central Park West has been renovated and enhanced, according to the listing with Frederick Peters of Warburg Realty.
Refined from top to bottom, the 5,000-plus-square-foot residence has 10 rooms, including enormous, light-filled common areas, three bedrooms and a room-sized dressing room. Details of note include high ceilings, herringbone and wide-plank wood floors, custom built-ins and beautiful paneling. French doors and picture windows take in the scenes from Central Park.
Accessed by elevator, the home includes a foyer and a long gallery that opens to the common areas. An executive office trimmed in dark wood paneling sits off the living room, which holds a fireplace. The formal dining room and updated kitchen are connected by a butler’s pantry with wine storage and a wet bar.
Located between 74th and 75th Street, the Emery Roth-designed San Remo also offers such building amenities as a fitness center, recreational area and a private garden. In addition to a front-row seat overlooking Central Park, the building is surrounded by world-class arts and culture destinations as well as the fine restaurants, boutiques and gourmet shops that line Central Park West.
Peters, who pens a real estate column for Forbes, said in a recent story that New York City’s real estate market is seeing signs of recovery after the market was largely turned on its head last year by the fallout from COVID-19.
“Stability, long-postponed by the terrible early months of the pandemic and the flight from town by many potential buyers, arrives in our market at last,” Peters wrote, noting that even “showpiece apartments” that once sat for years are now in high demand.
“The pandemic disrupted but did not derail the larger meta-cycle of New York’s residential real estate flow,” he wrote. “At this time last year, we had a busy market as buyer and seller expectations came into alignment. The pandemic misaligned those expectations for a while but now, a year later, we are once again at a moment of equilibrium in which deal flow is accelerating across New York City.”
