“Meet Walker Tower, the Newest Pre-war Building in Town”
New York Observer (11/14)
CORE’s newest development is Walker Tower, and news of the building was broken on the CORE Blog. The Observer followed that up with a look at the Chelsea building’s pre-war credentials. The weekly writes, “So if you’re looking for a new pad and want the pre-war facade without the pre-war maintenance fees, this might be a good place to start.” At right is an undated archival photo of Walker Tower.

Curbed also jumped on the Walker Tower news early, cementing the building’s status as a spring blockbuster-to-be. Here’s a taste: “One of the more remarkable features is its lofty ceiling heights—since each floor is nearly 15′ tall, the whole building looms over its neighbors, affording gobsmacking panoramic views to the south, west and north.”

For its “Six Digit Club” feature, highlighting the best listings priced under $1 million, Curbed took a look at Ivana Tagliamonte’s co-op listing at 47-49 King Street, which is a landmarked 1830s Federal-style brick rowhouse. Wrote Curbed, “OMG, cute.” We concur.
