New York PostSeptember 22, 2016

The weather is beginning to cool, but the city’s residential real-estate market plans to continue its hot streak. That’s right, house-hunters — dozens of condos and rentals will debut this season. Looking to nab a sweet pad? From the Upper West Side to Williamsburg, there are plenty of new buildings to choose from. Read on.




42 Crosby


This 10-unit Soho condominium designed by Annabelle Selldorf made headlines in 2014 with its million-dollar parking spots — yes, parking spaces for $1 million apiece. Well, two years on, the project finally kicked off sales this week with asks from $8.25 million. The seven-story building has nine three-bedroom spreads and a five-bedroom penthouse. As for amenities, there’s a car elevator that leads to that pricey parking area, with an electric-car charging port at each space, a terrarium art installation by Paula Hayes in the lobby, and private storage rooms.


87 Leonard St.


Tribeca, the once industrial, now high-class Lower Manhattan enclave, is known for its array of cast-iron architecture. Now’s your chance to live in one of these structures — a landmarked building at 87 Leonard St. that’s been converted into seven condos. Four units remain, including a just-listed 7,414-square-foot maisonette with two bedrooms and 444 square feet of outdoor space that is asking $7.75 million. There’s also a 3,612-square-foot penthouse with three bedrooms and a nice 1,573 square feet of outdoor space on the market for $10.75 million. The building also houses a gym for residents. Ben Shaoul’s Magnum Real Estate Group handled the conversion’s development, while GRADE New York spearheaded the design.
