A sampling of last week’s press coverage of CORE and CORE properties.
“Argentines Turn Cash Into Condos in Miami”
New York Times
Alexei Barrionuevo’s latest Big Deal column, on South American — and particularly Argentinian — buyers looking to invest their savings in Miami and New York real estate, highlights One Museum Mile (right) as a new luxury development in Manhattan that is getting lots of investor interest.
“CORE to open retail office on UES”
The Real Deal
CORE’s exciting announcement of a new Madison Avenue office is covered by The Real Deal, which writes, “The firm, which was recently ranked by TRD as the city’s top boutique brokerage based on the value of listings, has inked a 10-year lease for a 3,500-square-foot office at 673 Madison Avenue that will open next spring, the spokesperson said. A gut renovation of the place will begin this fall.
“Residential Sales Around the Region”
New York Times
The sale of the Chelsea Skyhouse, a triplex penthouse at 213 West 23rd Street listed by CORE’s Emily Beare and Christian Rogers, is featured. The trophy apartment, with 6,000 square feet of private outdoor space and a 30-foot atrium, sold for $8.2 million.
Earlier this week we announced that CORE will be opening a new location on the Upper East Side in the spring, on the second and third floors of the historic brownstone at 673 Madison Avenue. New signage announcing CORE’s impending arrival will be going up soon, but as a little sneak preview for CORE Blog readers, above is a rendering of how we’ll be announcing ourselves to the neighborhood — and hiding the space from prying eyes until we’re ready to show it off.
As the upper end of Manhattan’s real estate market continues to make gains, CORE is thrilled to announce plans for a new Upper East Side retail location at 673 Madison Avenue, at the corner of 61st Street. Located on the second and third floors of a historic brownstone on one of New York City’s premier commercial avenues, CORE’s Upper East Side office is slated for a spring 2013 opening, following a thorough gut renovation of the 3,500-square-foot space that will begin this fall. The uptown office will be the company’s third, following its original Chelsea retail location at 127 7th Avenue and its Flatiron District office at 104 5th Avenue, which opened last year.
We spoke with CORE co-founder and CEO Shaun Osher about this exciting news, and below you’ll find his remarks on the new office and how it fits his vision for CORE. For more on the announcement, read The Real Deal’s coverage today.
