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

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…

Dwell Diaries: 151 West 17th Street, 3G

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 in the expansive master bedroom at 151 West 17th Street, 3G never gets tiring – especially when it’s the size of most New York City studios. Footsteps away, you will find an en-suite marble bathroom with a soaking tub and separate glass shower. Who needs a spa day when you can find peace and relaxation so close to home?

Should you desire a quiet breakfast at home, it’s easy to do so in this loft-like Chelsea home. Floor-to-ceiling windows accompany a spacious chef’s kitchen – perfect for experimenting your culinary skills with a decadent petit déjeuner. There’s no shortage of coffee shops and breakfast bars too. The Commons Chelsea, just around the corner, is the perfect stop for a coffee and croissant when on the run.

Galleries galore dot the Chelsea streets but other cultural gems like the Rubin Museum are a must for a weekend afternoon. The Monumental Lhasa is just one of many exhibitions to see into the New Year. Afterwards, take a detour on the way home and gather easy inspiration for dinner at the Union Square Greenmarket. Organic and local vegetables, specialty seafood and homemade baked goods are just a few of the items to peruse while navigating the lively outdoor market.

For those who prefer to end the day with a casual bistro dinner, it’s an absolute must to dine out at longtime neighborhood favorites like Le Singe Vert or Le Zie. Fancy authentic Greek fare instead? Periyali on 20th Street might just transport you to a sunset dinner along the Mediterranean. A short walk to the heart of the West Village to wrap up the evening provides some reprieve after a busy day in Chelsea. Culture, proximity and space – what more could you ask for at 151 West 17th Street, 3G?
