432 Park splits full floor units as few buyers of huge apartments

Nov 10, 2015 5:17:00 PM

While 432 Park is over 70% sold out, the tony New York City Condo building has been having a hard time selling its high, full floor apartments. It's no wonder that they remain unsold, since full floor units at 432 Park measure over 8,000 square feet, enormous for New York City condos. And, since they are on some of the highest floors, very expensive as well (close to $80 million).

With land, development and construction costs clocking in at $5,000 per square foot, no wonder why prices at 220 Central Park South in NY are breaking records. While one would think high prices and related costs would be an impediment to sales activity, the Real Deal states that the building is more than 50% sold, despite not being open to the public just yet.

Sep 27, 2015 1:36:12 PM

We have been obsessed with Zaha Hadid’s first New York Luxury Condo project, located along the High Line at 520 W 28 Street, ever since we first heard about it a few years ago. Zaha Hadid, the only female Pritzker Prize winner, is one of the most talked about architects in the world, having a very distinctive personal design aesthetic that eschews typical rectangles and squares that define most architecture.  Inside and out, the space-age building in West Chelsea features organic shapes that result in a very attractive and one-of-a-kind design; even much of the glass curtain wall has rounded corner glass details.

Manhattan Real Estate Market Update

Sep 23, 2015 12:56:10 PM

The Manhattan real estate market continues to be very strong. Prices are up 7% from one year ago, with the average condo selling for $1,589 per sq. ft. and luxury condos selling for $2,551 per square foot. Buyers, however, continue to have a difficult time finding properties, as inventory remains low. This forced a 13% decline in sales activity of condos. Had there been more properties for sale, sales activity would have been much higher. We see the trend of low inventory continuing, even as more new development comes on the market.
