Paying Homage to New York’s First Skyscrapers

19 March, 2013 posted by: CORE

New York City’s iconic skyline is currently evolving. Projects such as One57, One World Trade Center and the development of the Hudson Yards will soon be in the backdrop of new postcards and movie stills. However, embracing the old with the new is a standard practice in New York City. That being said, we’d like to recognize a skyscraper that is currently seeing a lot of traffic during the celebration of its centennialThe Woolworth Building.Woolworth Building

Constructed in 1913, the Woolworth Building was built for Frank Winfield Woolworth, the owner of the “five and dime” retail chain and was designed by architect Cass Gilbert. From 1913 to 1930, the building was the world’s tallest skyscraper, an impressive run which ended when its close neighbor, 40 Wall Street, completed construction. The building is a perfect example of neo-Gothic architecture and features vaulted ceilings covered in mosaics and a grand, stained glass skylight. Read the rest of this entry »

BLOOMBERG SO

Last night’s The New York Observer’s 25th Anniversary celebration at The Four Seasons Restaurant had no shortage of celebrities and other notable guests in attendance.  With names like Katie Holmes, Spike Lee, Rupert Murdoch and Donald Trump as guests, one could easily get lost in the crowd of New York’s most influential individuals.  This week’s “Photo of the Week” captures CORE’s very own Shaun Osher and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg having a meeting of the minds, taking a moment to chat as the event was underway.  Perhaps the two of them were discussing the real estate market in New York City or the latest episode of Selling New York!

CORE was a proud sponsor of last night’s event, along with several other real estate firms throughout the city.

“The Sargent Report”: Tony Sargent’s Current Take on the Market

14 March, 2013 posted by: Tony Sargent

The newest “Sargent Report” is out!   tony sargent

My objective in launching TheSargentReport.com is to to provide buyers, sellers and those with an interest in New York City real estate with a solid source of information for what’s new and what’s happening  in New York real estate and my professional and personal view on the market (and beyond). It includes custom neighborhood reports and articles brought to you from both New York and other domestic and international markets.

Created in 2006, and now available online, The Sargent Report continues to be a much-requested, four-page brochure providing my clients and contacts with an independent “spin-free” insight into the Manhattan Real Estate Market, beyond what is typically available from general market reports.  When people hear I am in real estate, the first question I am asked is, “How’s the market”? The answer is, “It depends…on whether you are a buyer, seller, investor and what your price point is.”  My hope is to begin to answer your questions and to keep you informed.

Demand for The Sargent Report (printed edition) has climbed to over 2,000 copies nationwide and includes readers in over 10 countries.   If you have a specific question, please do contact me.

Architectural Achievements: The Shard

12 March, 2013 posted by: CORE

The ShardIn one of  Shaun Osher’s recent posts on architecture, he referenced that no matter one’s architectural preferences, fundamentally speaking, there is either good design or bad design. One of the most recent examples of “good design” (in our opinion) is The Shard, which officially opened to the public last month.

Located in London’s historic district, The Shard is a glass-clad, 95-story tower designed by Italian architect, Renzo Piano. The building has become the newest addition to the London skyline and although it received a fair amount of hesitation from critics, it has been embraced as an iconic building that will, in many respects, influence future large-scale projects in the city. In addition to its unique, spire-like design, The Shard hosts an interesting range of spaces including offices, residential units, a hotel, various restaurants, and five indoor and outdoor public viewing galleries.

Although visiting The Shard is worth the trip, New Yorkers will soon be treated with a new Renzo Piano project in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District, where he will once again be responsible for shaping another city’s skyline. The new Whitney Museum, which is currently under construction, is set to be completed in 2015.
