The couple and their 3-year old daughter have just welcomed twin boys into the family. Sarah and her husband quickly realize their 2-bedroom Bowery condo is too small. Prices on 3-bedroom lofts are rising fast, but they must sell their current home to be able to buy.
Sarah and Tony begin scouting for their dream TriBeCa home while her husband is working overseas and prepare to list their Bowery loft. If he can organize everything properly, he could have two sales on his hands in a matter of weeks. Keep on reading for some exclusive behind-the-scenes information on what didn’t make it into last night’s episode of “Selling New York” and what happened after the cameras stopped rolling!
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.
We are excited to announce the publication and release of the premiere issue of The Sargent Report: Tribeca. Tony Sargent designed a new take on The Sargent Report to provide a concise and comprehensive review of Tribeca’s luxury real estate market. This issue includes a summary of sales and market activity, details on future new developments, and the neighborhood’s most recent, noteworthy condo sales.
Sales volume for overall Manhattan real estate is at historic highs, while inventory and new listings are at five-year lows. However while luxury property sales remain high, an increase in entry-level sales draw overall averages down slightly.
In Tony’s experience of selling Tribeca luxury condos and co-ops, he has recognized that the area is a very strong micro-market with its own sales dynamics.
Publishing The Sargent Report: Tribeca is a result Tony’s vision and objective to provide residents and buyers of Tribeca high-end condominiums with the best possible advice, analysis, predictions and insight needed to make confident real estate decisions.
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.
Fantasizing about what’s behind the front doors of unique buildings and townhouses is a favorite New York pastime, and sometimes the reality is just as interesting as the fantasy. Here’s your chance to get a peek inside three incredibly unique properties currently on the market.
This rare detached house in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, dates back to the Civil War, which makes it ancient even for historic brownstone Brooklyn. What’s remarkable is that a lot of the character of this old home has survived — original entrance enframements and denticulated and bracketed cornices are in place, as well as the original wide-plank wood floors. Now the property ready for its next chapter, with expansion possibilities an alluring option in the house-crazy Brooklyn real estate market.
When looking for a real loft space, buyers have a mental checklist: high ceilings, big windows, open floor plans. But we also love the privacy that a full-floor loft affords, not to mention the multiple exposures. Here are three of our favorite “full-floors” on the market right now.
Tribeca is known for great loft apartments, and here’s one on the fifth floor of a boutique building on a top block. The space has three exposures — including a dramatic expanse of five east-facing windows — as well as an enormous great flanked by an open chef’s kitchen, though the residence is probably defined by its exposed original wood beams. At this price point, it should be high on the list of any loft hunter looking for a Tribeca home.
