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.
The Author- Brian Silvestry , a licensed real estate broker, has been selling residential and commercial real estate since 1999. He has sold in every neighborhood from Battery Park City to Washington Heights.
From the same team that brought 15 CPW comes this 54 story building with ony 31 units. Zeckendorf development together with the starchitect of starchitects, Robert A.M. Stern bring this 54 story limestone building to life on Park avenue. Well, the building is on the side street but the address thanks to air rights bought from the church gained the address 520 Park avenue.
Prices start around $16mm for one floor and duplexes around $67mm according the CurbedNY. The penthouse is set to ask a cool $130mm. The building is trying to recreate the success the developer and architect had at 15 CPW which recorded sales over $2 billion and started this whole new construction with prewar exteriors.
The amenities are not that different than 432 Park avenue with a fitness center, garden, lap pool…
Sales are supposed to start this year. It will be interested to see if this building can recreate the success of 15 CPW. That was a different market and 2015 will be the year with much more competition for new luxury developments in Manhattan. 6500 units altogether are set to come to the market in all price points.
This new construction condo which will be finished in 2016, has 6 contracts out of the 16 apartments on the market in streeteasy. Prices for the Robert A.M. Stern building range from just under to $5mm to just over $14mm for the listings on the market at this time. Marketing started less than 2 weeks ago.
The 17 story building will have 43 units ranging from 2-6 bedrooms residences. It also features a porte-cochere and unique amenities according to the building’s website.
This is one of the latest new construction buildings to invoke prewar architecture with luxury finishes. This old as new trend started with Mr. Stern’s 15 CPW which until recently held the record for most expensive residential sale in Manhattan for $88mm.
