Lat fall it was revealed that the 13-story office building at 93 Worth Street in Tribeca would be converted to luxury condominiums, with CORE’s Doron Zwickel leading the sales and marketing efforts.

“Manhattan’s 15 Central Park West Fuels Ultra-Luxury Condo Surge”
Bloomberg
The listing of steel magnate Leroy Schecter’s two combined apartments at 15 Central Park West, which recently made headlines when CORE’s Emily Beare put it on the market, has attracted new attention to the famed building, Bloomberg reports: “Schecter’s apartment offers unobstructed views of Central Park to the east and the Hudson River to the west. The property is a combination of two units, one of which was rented by New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez, that were purchased in 2008 for a total of $26 million, according to Emily Beare of CORE, the broker representing him. Schecter is renovating the space. ‘It’s almost like a work of art,’ Beare said. ‘It is an investment. You’re investing in one of the best properties in the world.”

“Walker Tower wows ‘em”
Real Estate Weekly
In a look at CORE’s ultra-luxury Walker Tower development in Chelsea, Real Estate Weekly gets an update on the building from co-developer Michael Stern of JDS Development: “‘The buyers are primarily New Yorkers, moving from uptown, Tribeca or SoHo,’ said Stern, adding that only one buyer so far is foreign. Though units at the building are unusually large, some buyers have opted to combine apartments.”

112311_shaunportraitA few factors drive price: consumer confidence, supply, demand.

According to a Bloomberg News article this week, there’s a lack of inventory of luxury housing, and prices are robust. Well, no kidding! This was predicted by yours truly (OK, and a few others) a few years ago when the development world took a dive in the wake of the credit crunch and no one was building anything new. Most of the “luxury” inventory consists of only a few types of product, and ironically, there is very little of it in Manhattan – one of the most expensive cities on the globe. If you own one of these — new development, prime location large homes on Central Park, Park and Fifth Avenues, penthouses, townhouses, and large downtown lofts — then you have a trophy.

Owners of these types of properties are generally financially sound enough to only sell when they want to. They can weather a bad market and sell when the market is more favorable. Developers who time this market right have a huge advantage to sit on their inventory, and wait for their number. And wait, they have.

If you’re lucky enough to be able to afford a trophy you should buy it because it wasn’t too long ago that talk of $2,000 per square foot on 57th Street was the stuff of a fiction novel. Now a developer is claiming $10,000 per foot for a building with a view.

To be continued…

Shaun Osher is the founder and CEO of CORE.

plannyc

Heavy pedestrian and vehicle traffic is a major part of what makes NYC unique. The ebb and flow of the city runs on the energy of this kinetic movement. In the last three years, Mayor Bloomberg’s office has been constructing a comprehensive pedestrian sustainability plan for the future of the city’s flow. PlaNYC includes over 450 miles of on-street bike lanes, an improved bus system and 1.8 acres of new pedestrian space in Times Square. For more information click here, PlaNYC.
