Since Walker Tower’s recent buzz after closing on the property’s staggering $50 million dollar penthouse, CORE made headlines this week following another notable deal at the noted Chelsea building. This past Friday, Reba Miller, Julia Cole and Susan Rubell’s listing at 212 West 18th Street was featured in The New York Times, after being on the market for less than one month. After purchasing and closing on the home for $5,027,609, the home’s seller re-listed the apartment approximately two weeks later for $7.9 million. Eventually selling for $7.775 million, the home’s almost $3 million profit is a true testament to the surge of residential activity and exuberance being experienced throughout the Manhattan real estate market.
