5000 new apartments coming to the market in new development in 2018

According to the latest reports, about 4600 new condo units will be listed this year in NYC. That is in addition to over 3000 that came online in 2017. Given that new development without an amazing location, is selling slowly that sounds like a lot of choices for buyers and anxiety for developers.

Ziel Feldman is bringing to market $3.4 billion in inventory within two projects. One is the Upper West side conversion of the Belnord with large units over 2000 square feet and another is the twisting condo towers known as XI on the Highline. Both projects come with starchitect pedigrees with Robert A.M. Stern redesigning the Belnord and Bjarke Ingels handling the designing of the new construction Highline condo.

1- Harlem
2- Fidi but more specifically Park Place
3- The Highline
