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.
It’s been an unseasonably warm winter in New York, and the historic former McBurney YMCA is dressing accordingly. Exterior maintenance work on the building, which was converted to a handful of massive loft apartments a few years ago, is now complete, and the Beaux-Arts beauty at 213 West 23rd Street has shed its scaffolding and is once again shining. Today the Daily News takes note of the building, specifically its epic penthouse. Dubbed Chelsea Skyhouse, the 6,000-square-foot apartment — with a 30′ atrium and a layout currently configured as a four-bedroom, each having access to terraces — also includes a staggering 7,000 sq. ft. of private outdoor space. It’s listed for $8.95M by CORE’s Christian Rogers and Emily Beare, who cracks to the Daily News, “People in the suburbs don’t have backyards this big.”
The paper’s Gina Pace adds, “With exposures in four directions, tons of floor-to-ceiling windows and no neighbors on the floor, the space feels like it has been airlifted from the west coast and placed on top of the Beaux Arts-style building.” Click over to the Daily News story for some great photos, and check out the floorplan for the Chelsea Skyhouse below.
