A sampling of last week’s press coverage of CORE and CORE properties.
“Big Deal: Trophy Hunting”
New York Times
CORE chief executive Shaun Osher commented on the wave of “trophy apartments” for real estate columnist Alexei Barrionuevo’s piece on the most desired high-priced apartments in town. Barrionuevo also highlighted CORE’s new Chelsea development, Walker Tower, where sales will begin this month: “Several brokers said they were waiting for new downtown developments that will provide fresh trophy penthouses to challenge uptown’s dominance. Projects like Walker Tower in Chelsea (at 212 West 18th Street), where a two-floor, 12,470-square-foot penthouse is expected to list for $94 million later this summer.”
“Patience Pays for Chelsea Flipper on West 17th”
Tom Postilio’s and Stuart Sussman’s sale at 246 West 17th Street in Chelsea (above) was featured on Curbed, which wrote, “Market timing helps, but patience and resolve seemed to pay off in this case.”
