When the penthouse at 18 Gramercy closes shortly for $42 million, it will set a new condo sales record for downtown. The property, developed by the superstar dream team of Arthur and William Lie Zeckendorf and Robert A. M Stern (think 15 Central Park West) is the former Evangeline Parkside residence for women built by the Salvation Army in 1927. The straight-laced former SRO is decidedly sexier now with only seventeen 4.500 sq. ft. residences (plus penthouse and maisonette). And yes, men will be allowed above the lobby floor for the first time since 1927.
