The Centurion®, 33 West 56th Street, New York, Now 65 Percent Sold and Closed

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Sep 1, 2011) - The Centurion® Condominium, located at 33 West 56th Street next to Fifth Avenue and within walking distance to Central Park, is now 65 percent sold and closed. Only 15 residences and three outstanding penthouses remain available for purchase. Prices range from $2.5 to $39 million.

The building has seen a surge in sales in recent months as buyers from Europe, Asia and Latin America have discovered the building's unique combination of boutique-style services and prominent location.

"High-profile buyers from all over the world have selected The Centurion as their primary or second home, and many have cited the iconic property's central location, elegant architecture, high security and personal service as key factors in their decision," said Thomas Guss, president of New York Residence Inc., the exclusive marketing and sales agent for The Centurion. "The property effortlessly combines exclusivity with elegance."

Guss continued, "One of the reasons the building now stands out is the lack of high-quality new construction in Manhattan. There is really nothing available that comes close in terms of architecture, quality and price."

The 19-story, freehold property is the only ground-up residential condominium designed by Design Architect/Pei Partnership Architects with I.M. Pei in Manhattan. The building makes a strong architectural statement, with a waterfall-shaped façade with setbacks in a sloped fashion, in rare limestone from France.

For a limited time, Sandi Pei is personally available to exquisitely hand-tailor the interior design of a purchased unit to the custom tastes and desires of its buyer.

The Centurion is a serene space in the center of dynamic Manhattan. Apartments have high ceilings and are light-flooded, while the tranquil lobby and its water garden add a unique feature to the full-range of 24-hour services found in a high-end residential building.

Only steps from Central Park, Fifth Avenue and many of New York's best shops such as Gucci, Prada, Hermes, Tiffany's, Louis Vuitton, Bulgari and Harry Winston, the building offers easy access to the best of New York.

New York Residence maintains an onsite sales office in the building, and appointments to view the stunning property are available daily. For more information or to schedule a private appointment, call 212-888-5633 or visit
