This week the influential business publication Crain’s wrote about the hot market in the city for “starter apartments.” The studio and one-bedroom market is surging, according to recent market data. Here’s a look at three new CORE listings for the types of properties that buyers are snatching up at a rapid pace.
Murray Hill has some of the most beautiful and historic townhouses of any neighborhood in New York, a fact that often gets overlooked. This studio with a great lofted sleeping nook is located within one of those houses in the quaint neighborhood, on one of the best blocks, just off Park Avenue South. Totally renovated with its own fireplace, this is a starter home with lots of character.
A sampling of last week’s press coverage of CORE and CORE properties.
“Gilt by Association”
New York Times
CORE Managing Director Tom Postilio spoke to the Times about creative marketing events used to sell real estate. Said Postilio: “We have to be very creative these days to showcase properties and cross-brand, and to think of any outside-the-box ways to bring traffic and attention to properties.”
New York Post
Speaking of Tom, his new penthouse listing at 211 East 51st Street (right), which he launched with a V.I.P. party co-sponsored by Manhattan magazine, was featured in the Post’s Dream Homes column.
“A Duplex With Slide Lists in New York for Nearly $4 Million”
Wall Street Journal
A penthouse so nice, we had to mention it twice. As covered last week, the Wall Street Journal got the scoop on Elizabeth Kee’s and Lindsee Silverstein’s new East Village penthouse listing, which features a steel slide connecting the upper and lower levels. The apartment was also featured on Gothamist and Curbed.
“Inside Chelsea’s most stylish new building”
New York Daily News
Chelsea’s most stylish new building is 305W16, one of CORE’s new developments in the neighborhood, the Daily News wrote. It was a big week for the building, which also hit the 75% sold mark and unveiled a new model apartment. Curbed had the first photos of the latter.
“Small Screen Announcements”
A quick note from our friends at Curbed: There will be more “Selling New York,” starring the agents of CORE, coming viewers’ way in the near future.
Some of the most serene views in Manhattan belong to the buildings facing the East River that dot the edges of Sutton Place and its surrounding neighborhoods. It’s an iconic view, and one you’ll get from the corner 2BR/2BA apartment listed by CORE’s Elisabeth Kee at 25 Sutton Place South. Waking up to postcard views of the river is great, but we also love this night view (especially around the holidays), with the Queensboro Bridge twinkling with light like the world’s biggest Christmas tree.
