Bloomberg’s James S. Russell delivers a sharp criticism of Dean of the Architecture School Robert A.M. Stern’s nearly completed renovation of 15 Central Park West.

“Stern delivers high-end posh. Attending to such niceties is so rare in Manhattan that it’s no wonder buyers are willing to pay top dollar. Yet one reason Manhattan’s skyline is so magical is that there was a time when architects remixed the standard ingredients to capture the city’s unstoppable energy in steel and stone. For all the dollars and attention, 15 Central Park West lacks the courage of its nostalgic convictions.”
