April 19, 2012Brokerage Celebrates Promising Sales Activity and Building’s Significant Place along New York’s Most Famous Mile
NEW YORK – April 19, 2012 – Last night, developer Brickman and CORE celebrated the official naming of One Museum Mile with a one-of-a-kind event: “Tasting the World of Upper Manhattan.” Curated in partnership with the neighborhood’s favorite eateries and museums, close to 200 guests toured One Museum Mile’s model residences and enjoyed the best of the area’s culinary and fine arts which showcased the rich culture of the surrounding neighborhood.
“We wanted to kick off the spring selling season with an event that highlights many of the elements that make this residential project extraordinary,” said Brickman’s principal, Bruce Brickman. “Specifically, we wanted to showcase the experience of living at One Museum Mile.”
Overlooking Central Park’s lushest landscapes, One Museum Mile is situated at the crown of Fifth Avenue on Museum Mile – the section of Fifth Avenue known for its legendary lineup of museums and cultural institutions. As the future home of the Museum for African Art, One Museum Mile is an iconic new focal point along this famed stretch of the City.
“One Museum Mile is one of the most exciting projects to come to market. It is truly special because of its Fifth Avenue address, direct views of Central Park, and some of the world’s finest museums right on its doorstep,” said Shaun Osher, co-founder and CEO of CORE, which is handling the sales and marketing for the project. “Sales traffic is strong, and we’re proud to report that we have sent out 9 contracts in just over a week.”
“Tasting the World of Upper Manhattan” brought together an all-star, local cast for an evening exhibiting the building’s finest model residences as well as the best of the neighborhood’s food, drinks and art. Guests sampled from exclusive menus provided by The Lexington Social, Ottomanelli’s, Ricardo Steak House, The 5 and Diamond Restaurant and Make My Cake, with live music by Nanny Assis and his Brazilian quartet. In addition, The Museum of the City of New York, El Museo del Barrio and The National Academy Museum provided guests with complementary museum passes and the Museum for African Art partnered with Brickman to offer the generous gift of a one-year membership to anyone who purchases a residence in One Museum Mile.
