Elegran Monthly Round-Up: July
Home sales in NYC saw an increase of 15 percent in the second quarter of 2017 compared to the same quarter last year.

A living room at 55 West 17th Street
The Flatiron district is named after the landmark Flatiron building, just one of the many beautiful architectural achievements in the area. This may be one of the many reasons why this neighborhood has a low turnover rate, since once people buy a home in Flatiron they never want to leave this lovely area. The median price for an apartment in this neighborhood is $2.2 million, and residents get to enjoy a type of peace and quiet at night that is rare in NYC, since Flatiron is at its busiest in the afternoons and during cocktail hour, but relatively quiet at night.
In July, agents Andrew Warren and Heather Glotzer sold a $4,294,990 home in Flatiron at 55 West 17th St. This contemporary building was designed by Morris Adjmi Architects to complement that architecture of the neighborhood with a facade of Danish white brick and several classic details throughout. The many amenities in this luxury residence include a fitness center, screening room, residents’ lounge, landscaped terrace, and more.

A living room in 77 Bleecker St.
When people think of the history and culture of NYC, Greenwich Village is one of the areas that often comes to mind first.

The median sales price for an apartment in this area is $1.6 million, a price many New Yorkers are willing to pay to call the tree-lined streets of Greenwich Village home.
Last month, agents Nick Anable and Seth Podell sold a $2,400,000 home on the most iconic street in Greenwich Village - Bleecker St. Bleecker Court is a classic pre-war building constructed in 1930 and designed by Avinash K.
