Wall Street Journal: A (Museum) Mile in Their Shoes

16 June, 2014 posted by: CORE

Last week, One Museum Mile was featured in The Wall Street Journal, and CORE broker Tom Postilio talks about one couple’s purchase in the building. Chronicling their move from London to New York City in 2012, the piece documents the evolution along this stretch of upper Fifth Avenue.  The Robert A.M. Stern designed building offers several sought-after amenities including a dining/conference room, a living room, teen hangout, fitness room and children’s play area. According to the couple, after initially struggling to navigate the tough Manhattan market, their home “…feels like an oasis in the city.” As one of the first new developments of its kind in the area, One Museum Mile’s world-class address, sweeping views and design have made it a distinct presence along Central Park.



 

Development News: There’s a New Trend in Town

New Trend In Town

As the demand for new condos grows, and the inventory shrinks, a number of new buildings that were initially conceived of as rentals are now becoming condos for sale. One such building is 325 Lexington Avenue in Murray Hill. A tall glass building, originally designed and finished as a rental, almost ready for occupancy, will be coming to market soon.

I see this trend continuing as long as the for sale market continues to show strength.



 

Celebrating a CORE Milestone

OMM Recap

On Monday night, Brickman and CORE hosted an intimate event for colleagues and friends at Minton’s jazz club in Harlem to celebrate the latest milestone at One Museum Mile. Earlier this month, the Upper Carnegie Hill new development property announced that 100% of units were closed or in contract, with CORE managing the sales and marketing efforts for the building. “We are very pleased with the success of One Museum Mile,” says Tom Postilio, Director of Sales for the building. “This neighborhood is not emerging – it is blossoming. And, buyers have recognized the building’s overall value and exceptional quality of the amenities, design and finishes, as well as its prestigious Fifth Avenue location with sweeping Central Park vistas.” Today’s photo captures a moment during the night’s festivities, which offered lively conversation, delicious food and live jazz.

Manhattan Real Estate was as Big a Star as the Celebrities Buying it in 2013

30 December, 2013 posted by: Adrian Noriega

adrianHot celebrity scandals on and off-screen will have to turn up the heat if they intend to approach the sizzling temperature generated by the Manhattan real estate market over the past year. Turning the heads of jaded New Yorkers is nearly impossible to do, even for A-list celebs and this may be a reason why so many of them have been snapping up properties in the Big Apple.  With the properties themselves every bit as glamorous as the buyers they’re attracting, the Gotham celebrity real estate gossip is as tantalizing as the stories on Page Six or TMZ.  Here’s a breakdown of the hottest whispers in celebrity NYC real estate from 2013.

The NoMad (North of Madison) neighborhood must’ve rolled out the red carpet, judging by the influx of celebrities from football players, supermodels, world leader’s offspring, and race car drivers buying into the neighborhood’s developments. Hunky footballer Tom Brady and supermodel Gisele Bundchen snapped up a $14 million love shack.  Around the same time, Chelsea Clinton moved into The Whitman with husband Mark Mezvinksy, who sold his Flatiron place for $4.75 million. The former First Daughter scored a sweet $1.25 million discount on the full-floor unit that stretches across an entire city block; that million dollar savings should subsidize quite a soiree for all her famous neighbors, which now includes NASCAR heartthrob Jeff Gordon, who sold his 15 Central Park West 3-bedroom home for $30 million.
