A sampling of last week’s press coverage of CORE and CORE properties.

The Times‘ Alexei Barrionuevo writes, “[D]omestic buyers are also circling, and are especially eager to buy downtown, developers say. And as downtown projects go, nothing seems as primed to capitalize as quickly on the favorable market conditions (for the industry) than Walker Tower, the Chelsea building originally designed by the architect Ralph Walker that is now being converted into 50 condominiums.”
