    The Centurion
    Residences: Forty-eight units with one to four bedrooms occupy the 19-story structure designed by the Louvre architect I.M. Pei. A plan to combine the building’s three penthouses has been envisioned by the designer James Stanley, whose video walk-through illustrates his designs for a triplex with five bedrooms, two kitchens, three full baths, a media room, a private elevator, a three-story glass staircase, and a private spa.
    Amenities: Inside the homes, which have ceilings as high as 17 feet, are Bosch appliances; teak floors; tinted, sound-insulated windows; and marble and limestone floors and countertops.
