Elegran Monthly Round-Up: May 2018
Last month, NYC was once again named one of the most luxurious housing markets in the world thanks to its ample affordable luxury housing options. Now is a great time to buy a home in New York, and Elegran agents were able to find incredible deals for their clients in May and secure several impressive exclusive listings for June.
Building: Madison Square Park Tower
May Deals Closed For: $8,700,000
Some New Yorkers may think that the residential boom occurring in the Flatiron District is relatively new, but that’s far from the case. One hundred years ago, the area was a major residential neighborhood, home to some of the most influential NYC business people of the time. The area’s popularity as a residential area began to fade in the mid-20th century, but it’s back in full force these days, and the Flatiron is once again home to some of New York's most influential people and beautiful buildings.
In May, Elegran CEO Michael Rossi and agent Nick Agostinelli closed a $8,700,000 deal at the Madison Square Tower 45 East 22nd Street in the Flatiron District. This stunning building features homes with floor-to-ceiling windows that offer incredible views of the Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, the clock tower at 1 Madison Avenue and access to amenities like a golf simulator, basketball court, children’s playroom, library, billiards, cards room, terrace with outdoor grill, and a fitness center.
Neighborhood Greenwich Village
Building: 1 Great Jones Alley
May Deals Closed For: $5,000,000
Greenwich Village was and remains one of the most culturally significant neighborhoods in NYC. Home to countless artists throughout the 1960s and beyond, Greenwich Village has one of the most complex and storied histories of any neighborhood in the world. That history can be seen clearly on Great Jones Street, a unique part of the area that was once home to painter Jean-Michel Basquiat, who was living in a building owned by the iconic artist Andy Warhol.
Last month, agent Nick Agostinelli sold a $5,000,000 home at 1 Great Jones Alley, a gorgeous collection of residencies that boast gracious balconies, soaring high ceilings, kitchens with Italian white oak cabinetry, bathrooms with custom Japanese-style soaking tubs, and more.

In May, Elegran agent Elijah Brown sold a $4,450,000 home at 252 East 57th Street in Sutton Place.

Building: 15 Madison Square North
May Deals Closed For: $4,250,000
It can be difficult to pinpoint the best aspects of Nomad because there are so many things to choose from. For foodies, it may be the wide selection of Danny Meyer restaurants from the original Shake Shack to Marta Pizzeria, while book lovers can spend hours browsing the beautiful, iconic bookstore Rizzoli. There’s also a host of shops, nightlife spots, and high-end hotels if you’re looking to spend a ritzy evening away from home.
In May, agent Kevin Huang sold a $4,250,000 home at 15 Madison Square North, an ultra-luxurious building designed to highlight the style of modern Manhattan while celebrating the beauty of classic New York.

Neighborhood: Hell’s Kitchen
Building: Stella Tower
May Deals Closed For: $3,700,000
Is there any area of NYC more iconic than Hell’s Kitchen? Just steps from Times Square, Herald Square, and countless other major NYC attractions in Midtown West, Hell’s Kitchen is one of the most popular tourist spots in the city, but it’s far more than that. This area is also home to a wide range of luxurious residential buildings and high-end dining options as well as great schools, making it an exciting, diverse place to call home.
In May, Elegran agents Trevor Connolly and Kirk Eckenrode closed a deal on a $3,700,000 home in Stella Tower in Hell’s Kitchen.

Building: 77 Reade Street
June Listing Total: 3,095,000
The first word that comes to mind when many people think of Tribeca is “lofts” and for good reason. Tribeca’s famed lofts are known for their spacious layouts, large windows, and industrial feel. The vibe of Tribeca is effortlessly cool, which is one of the many reasons why it is such a coveted place to call home. Opportunities to own apartments in this area are rare, which is why whenever they appear on the market they don’t stay there for long.
This month, Elegran agent Peter Oliveri is representing a loft-like home in 77 Reade Street in Tribeca. Apartment 5B is a 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom home with an expansive, 30-foot living area with five oversized south-facing floor-to-ceiling windows, wide plank white ash hardwood floors throughout, a fully equipped, open-concept chef's kitchen, and many other luxurious touches.

Building: One Riverside Park
June Listing Total: $5,490,000
Lincoln Square is famous for its arts and culture scene, which spreads far beyond the Lincoln Square for Performing Arts.

This summer, the groups will be offering free lunchtime concerts in the area that range from funk and classic rock to opera.
This month, agent Peter Oliveri is representing a $2,995,000 home in Lincoln Square in the gorgeous One Riverside Park.

In June, Elegran agents Daniel Chun and Brett Michaels are representing a $1,295,000 1-bedroom home in the Arris Lofts in Long Island City.
