Dwell Diaries: 124 West 23rd Street, 15A

Dwell_Diaries_May

Dwell Diaries provides a peek at a “day-in-the-life” in one of CORE’s exclusive listings. From master suites to neighborhood hotspots, our diary doesn’t spare a detail.

Waking up at 124 West 23rd Street, 15A is nothing short of blissful. Thanks to this three-bedroom’s location at the cusp of Chelsea, Flatiron and Nomad, each morning presents itself with not only endless convenience but also ample opportunity for “New York moments.” Floor-to-ceiling windows in the luxurious master bedroom suite ensure natural light doesn’t escape your morning routine. The master bedroom suite also boasts a deep soaking tub and radiated heated floors. Who needs to a spa day when everything you need for relaxation is at home at 124 West 23rd Street, 15A?

Even though this boutique building features a fitness room, gym and 24-hour concierge, you don’t have to go much farther if you wish to switch up your workout regimen or run errands. Firstly, luxury workout locales such as David Barton, Equinox and SoulCycle are only blocks away from 124 West 23rd Street. With proximity to three vibrant New York City neighborhoods, there is no shortage of excellent shopping, dining and other activities. Eataly, the largest Italian marketplace in the world, situated in Flatiron is a one-stop-shop for high-end groceries, upscale (and al fresco) dining and much more. If you’re only looking for the necessities this afternoon, your local Whole Foods in Chelsea should do the trick. Finally, some of the best luxury shopping lives on Fifth Avenue – you’ll find Anthropologie, J.Crew and Michael Kors to name a few.

Fancy an afternoon pick-me-up? Dough Doughnuts, the Brooklyn spin-off on West 19th Street, is the perfect pit stop for a sweet treat and coffee. If your pick-me-up is more savory than sweet, nostalgic New York City doesn’t escape this neighborhood, thanks to the nearby eatery El Quijote. Once part of the historic Chelsea Hotel, this longtime eatery offers traditional Spanish dishes. As the evening nears, and with groceries in hand, why not enjoy dinner at home in your open Snaidero kitchen? Dine al fresco on one of your two private terraces while gazing at the New York City skyline; 15 floors up on West 23rd Street is wonderfully quiet on a spring evening. In the hub of Chelsea yet outside of the fray in this quiet, boutique building – what’s not to love about living at 124 West 23rd Street, 15A?

Walker Tower: Downtown Luxury Redefined

20 March, 2017 posted by: CORE

The_Walker 2031,2

CORE’s new development team was presented the challenge of turning Ralph Thomas Walker’s Verizon Building into an uber-luxury condominium in Chelsea. The building was built in 1929 as the center of telecommunications. So, transforming this building into a residential condominium with layouts that appealed to buyers was no easy task.

In order to accomplish their goal, the new development team put their creative minds together and created a “destination” building by educating buyers about the building’s stature and pedigree, reviving the legacy of the great Ralph Walker and collaborating with CetraRuddy to create generous layouts with luxurious finishes and amenities.

CORE’s efforts resulted in a record-breaking average per square foot of $3,500 at Walker Tower, the highest ever downtown and $10,000 per square foot for the penthouse. Finally, CORE created the Ralph Walker brand and in doing so, redefined downtown luxury.

Best Apartment I Ever Sold: Patrick Mills

14 February, 2017 posted by: CORE

305_West_16th_Street_2H_01

Best Apartment I Ever Sold invites our agents to share the unique story of their best selling experience to date. This week, learn why Patrick Mills’ sale at 305 West 16th Street, 2H is his best one yet.

While I of course appreciate beautiful design and homes that make you say “wow”, I am motivated more by the relationships I build with my clients and sometimes even their dogs! With that said, when I reflect on the best apartment I ever sold, it’s no surprise that I immediately think about 305 West 16th Street, 2H and the people who sold and purchased it and of course, the dog that lived there.

Apartment 2H at 305 West 16th Street was my 60th transaction in the building and although beautifully designed and well decorated, I really connected with the newly married couple who were selling it. Furthermore, I also found a friendship in the couple who bought it and were just about to get married. And then of course there was Mousse, the sellers’ chocolate lab who was the mascot for this great Chelsea home.

The aesthetic of the apartment was very warm and worldly, decorated with pictures from the sellers’ travels across the globe. A certificate for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro was prominently displayed, and simply being in the space gave a sense that the sellers lived a very full life. On top of all this, Mousse, the sweetest chocolate Labrador you’ve ever met, brought the home to life and filled each room with love.

It was fitting that a lovely couple, just a few months from getting married, came to the first open house and immediately fell in love with the home and Mousse. There was no doubt that the pair felt the warmth and love the sellers had brought to the home. The couple wasted no time and quickly submitted a full ask offer. We closed 45 days later. Since then, the buyers have made this apartment their own and even brought a new mascot, their golden retriever, Bailey!

This was an extremely quick and easy transaction, but it was the people and Mousse that left a lasting impression on this seasoned broker.



 

“In Like Flynn”

30 January, 2017 posted by: CORE

What does it mean? It is a slang phrase meaning “having quickly or easily achieved a goal or gained access as desired.”

Where did it come from? A celebration of the freewheeling lifestyle and cinematic feats of 1930’s movie icon Errol Flynn. Our building embodies this spirit.

What does it look like? For CORE, it looks like this…
