27A Harrison Street

The Wall Street Journal featured CORE CEO and Founder Shaun Osher‘s historic listing at 27A Harrison Street as their pick for “House of the Day” yesterday. Built in 1899 – originally on Washington Street – the home was designated for historic preservation and relocated to Harrison Street in the early 1970’s. The article discusses the modern renovation of the townhouse including an installation of a modern, stainless-steel staircase, which resembles a piece of art. Current owner Sarah Bartlett remarked on her renovation inspiration, what she loves most about the home and why she’s leaving.

Market Update Monday: 8,000 Permits Approved

01 February, 2016 posted by: CORE

With the looming 421-a tax break program expiring on January 15th, developers set out to gain approval for upwards of 8,000 permits for 299 development projects. According to the Wall Street Journal, this was the third highest monthly total since 2010.

The program provided tax exemptions to developers on vacant land that would be turned into residential buildings as long as at least 20 percent of the projects provided affordable units. Ultimately the plan expired because developers could not reach an agreement with unionized workers for on-site construction wages.

With no clear solution, developers seemingly raced to the finish to capitalize on the impending changes. Though there were a whopping 7,781 permits issued, Manhattan only accounted for four percent of the total permits. This however, is most likely due to stricter regulations for the borough.

In total, permits issued for 2015 surpassed the previous record high of 2008, with 2016 sure to be an ever stronger contender.

Video: Walker Tower’s Past Uncovered

17 December, 2012 posted by: CORE

The tributes keep pouring in for Ralph Walker, the late trailblazing architect who is back in the news thanks to Walker Tower, the 50-unit luxury condominium developed by JDS Development Group and Property Markets Group. Walker Tower is being fashioned from one of Walker’s signature pre-war Art Deco skyscrapers in Chelsea, built at 212 West 18th Street in the late 1920s. Already the subject of an architectural exhibition held at Walker Tower last spring and a career-spanning biography published in September by Rizzoli, Ralph Walker is now receiving the documentary treatment. The short film above provides a great summary of Walker’s greatest works and his impact on the New York skyline, while also providing a guided glimpse inside Walker Tower.

The film is a great companion to last week’s Wall Street Journal feature story by Josh Barbanel, headlined “In Manhattan, Downtown Looks Up,” in which Walker Tower is held up as a shining example of what wealthy buyers are looking for in today’s real estate market: Spacious and meticulously finished Manhattan homes that blend traditional Uptown sensibility with a trendy Downtown location. Ralph Walker’s pioneering Art Deco style is an important part of that appeal.

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.
