Last week, the Commercial Observer profiled one of Gramercy’s latest new development sites, 327 East 22nd Street. Slated to house a 10-unit condominium, Suzuki Capital recently purchased the building for $11.5 million, with plans to rebuild the existing space now that permits have been filed.

According to the team, the first open house attracted more than 100 potential buyers, including actor Jake Gyllenhaal.

Last week, One Museum Mile was featured in The Wall Street Journal, and CORE broker Tom Postilio talks about one couple’s purchase in the building. Chronicling their move from London to New York City in 2012, the piece documents the evolution along this stretch of upper Fifth Avenue. The Robert A.M. Stern designed building offers several sought-after amenities including a dining/conference room, a living room, teen hangout, fitness room and children’s play area. According to the couple, after initially struggling to navigate the tough Manhattan market, their home “…feels like an oasis in the city.” As one of the first new developments of its kind in the area, One Museum Mile’s world-class address, sweeping views and design have made it a distinct presence along Central Park.
