Boasting 46 condominium units conveniently situated between 27th and 28th streets, 241 Fifth also carries the unique distinction of being the only ground-up construction residential project in the trendy neighborhood of NoMad. Designed by Eran Chen of ODA-Architecture, these homes offer an inspired blend of sophisticated and contemporary style right in the heart of the Manhattan.

Residences also feature oversize windows, kitchens with a suite of Miele appliances, bathrooms with a deep-soaking tub, glass-enclosed shower and solid teak wall detailing.
The building’s amenities package features 24/7 concierge, a rooftop terrace, a fitness center equipped with state-of-the-art cardio and weightlifting equipment, a Zen tranquility room for yoga, Pilates or meditation, a residence lounge and private wellness treatment room, which offers a serene space for massage or beauty treatments.

You may have noticed a construction site on Fifth Avenue, between 27th and 28th Streets – its our new development project at 241 Fifth Avenue! This is the only ground-up new construction residential project in New York City’s booming NoMad neighborhood. In our “Photo of the Week”, the construction crew is busy installing the oversized windows into the homes which will have sweeping views of Fifth Avenue, one of the most coveted addresses in the City. Sales will launch soon – stay tuned!
After months of behind-the-scenes preparation, in a dash to the finish line, we’re excited to announce that sales have kicked off at our new downtown development project, 93 Worth. As reported in the Wall Street Journal, the market is hotter than ever in Tribeca, despite the neighborhood’s effects from Superstorm Sandy and buyers and brokers are not dissuaded.
After over a year of construction and renovations, we’re excited to share that the sixth floor model units are now ready. Buyers and brokers alike will now be able to check out the fully staged 3-bedroom, split 2-bedroom and studio model units which boast exposed steel columns, 7-foot casement windows and custom, hand-brushed patina brass fixtures throughout.
30 of the 92 units at the Tribeca development have been released and the sales office is now open. For more information, please visit www.93worth.com.
With all the buzz about CORE’s 93 Worth Street project in TriBeCa, we thought it was the perfect time to provide a closer look at what this historic former garment factory will look like once construction is complete. Designed by ODA, the newly reconfigured luxury condominium building will offer 92 units — studios to four-bedrooms — in one of Manhattan’s most in-demand downtown neighborhoods.
In a nod to the old and the new, 93 Worth Street, which dates back to 1924, will sport a very modern penthouse addition on top. The existing facade below will be cleaned and restored, and new picture windows are being installed. For an update on how the building looks now (and a peek at those new windows), check out the photo CORE CEO Shaun Oster posted on Facebook earlier this month. For more information on the building, keep your eye on 93worth.com.
Flip open the New York Post today and you’ll see CORE’s upcoming 93 Worth Street project on the cover of the Home section. The TriBeCa luxury condominium building, a conversion of a garment factory and office building built in 1924, was announced last October, and now there are finally specifics to share. Here’s what the Post has to say (you can find the story online here):
Built in 1924, 93 Worth St. began as a garment factory. For the past 50 years, it has served as an office building. And now it has met its destiny — the same destiny as so many buildings in this city — as a luxury condominium. The 13-story TriBeCa building will offer 92 units, studios to four-bedrooms, priced from $1,250 to $2,000 a square foot. Amenities will include a 24-hour doorman, fitness center, playroom, lounge and 3,845-square-foot roof deck. On the ground floor will be 10,000 square feet of commercial space. Sales will start this fall.
The 93 Worth website recently launched with a sign-up form for more information. Head over there and sign up to be among the first to get details of the building’s sales launch.
Closings have just kicked off at One Murray Park, the new 45-unit luxury condominium development in Long Island City along a recently renovated playground and park. The building, one of the few new developments in this rapidly transforming neighborhood, is now 64% in contract, according to CORE’s Doron Zwickel, who is handling sales and marketing for the building. Featuring amenities such as a doorman, fitness center, residents’ library, roof deck and indoor parking, One Murray Park is also entering the homestretch of construction, which makes it the perfect time to check in on the building following our earlier sneak peek inside.

“Signs Are Up At 93 Worth”
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. Now Curbed has spotted some new signage at the site. We’ll have more on 93 Worth in the weeks ahead.
“Manhattan’s 15 Central Park West Fuels Ultra-Luxury Condo Surge”
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.”
Though summer is usually regarded as the slow season for selling real estate, CORE’s new Long Island City development, One Murray Park, is proving that’s not always the case. The 45-unit building, which launched right at the start of the season, has just crossed the 50% in contract milestone–hitting 53%, to be exact. It’s no surprise why the building is enjoying strong sales success: One Murray Park, located at 11-25 45th Avenue, is the first new condominium development in the growing Long Island City neighborhood in some time, and the luxury amenities include a doorman, gym, indoor parking, roof deck, and library lounge. Being located right on the recently renovated Murray Park is a major attraction, as well. Current listings in the building range from a $385,000 studio to a 2-bed/2-bath unit priced at $900,000.

Launched one month ago, Walker Tower, the conversion of a beautiful Ralph Walker-designed Art Deco building in Chelsea into 50 luxury condominium residences, has been a hit. Now it’s time we show off exactly what people are responding so positively to. Above and below, you’ll find a handful of new images of the fully furnished model residence on the 10th floor, a 3-bedroom (plus home office), 3.5-bathroom apartment with an expansive private terrace. We’ll let the photos do the talking, but for more on Walker Tower and the apartment features and finishes, see the CORE listings and the building’s official website.

“Big Deal: Shooting for the Moon”
New York Times
CORE CEO Shaun Osher commented extensively on the next wave of trophy properties to hit the market in Manhattan, saying, “What makes a trophy property is the fact that it really is an intangible, priceless object, like a piece of art. This part of the market is not a rational decision, it is an emotional one.” CORE’s brand new Walker Tower project, and its upcoming $50 million penthouse, is singled out as a new trophy residence for well-heeled buyers. The story was also covered by The Real Deal.
