A new building is rising at 61 West 104th street. The previous building was a 10 unit building which was demolished. The new building will have 7 stories, 34 apartments and just over 23k of residential square footage.
There are a variety of different amenities that you will see in Manhattan new developments ranging from movie theaters, and golf simulators to swimming pools, catering kitchens and shared outdoor spaces and even an occasional tennis court.
According to Jonathan Miller or Miller Samuel Inc. there is a perception that more is better. From my experience, buyers look for what makes sense for their lifestyle. In a larger projects, you have more room for amenities. For example in Waterline Square on the West side of Manhattan, you have a shared amenity space called the Waterline club which includes a soccer pitch and a tennis court among the many amenities.
Within an apartment or townhouse, you look at the condition of the apartment including the finishes in the kitchens and bathrooms but also the details.
What amenities do you think are most important to have in a building and within the individual apartment or townhouse?
The final phase of the Riverside South project that started in 1974 is due to complete construction in late 2019. The 3 buildings will be a mix of rentals and condos with an amenity space that includes a tennis court, and a swimming pool. The developers have a food hall by the Cipriani Group that will take up a portion of the retail and a park in between the starchitect designed buildings known as 1,2 and 3 Waterline Square. Prices start at $1.83 million.
