  • New Luxury Conversion Potential with Closing of Chelsea Prison By Tim Sheehan | August 21, 2013

    When Hurricane Sandy battered the Bayview Correctional Facility in Chelsea, the all-women’s prison was already empty, with the inmates having been evacuated days before. Fourteen feet of water flooded the facility and left the state with a $600,000 bill in damage repairs. Though some repairs have been made, it still remains vacant, and Governor Cuomo has decided to close the medium-security prison and sell it instead as part of his 2013-14 budget.

    It’s a bright and sunny Sunday afternoon in Chelsea. The owners of a newly listed apartment on West 24th Street are hosting their very first open house at 1:00 pm.  It’s now 12:45pm and already the lobby is full of people waiting to see this 18th floor two-bed/two-bath with an asking price of $2,500,000.

  • Woo's Pier 57: A New Cultural Hub for Chelsea on the Horizon By Joel Bennett | June 06, 2013

    Young Woo is considered an intrepid in the world of development. He’s forward thinking, straying just far enough outside the box to keep tentative plans realistic and feasible, but not so far as to scare off potential investment. Back in 2009, he was able to beat out stiff competition with a novel design plan to convert Pier 57 into a hub for public market activity, housing local retailers and artisans. The plan was unanimously approved by the City Council in April, and has already leased spaces for several shops over the Summer.

Rumors of a hotel going up within the neighborhood were being whispered on the streets back in 2008. Residents were perturbed due to thoughts of losing a quiet neighborhood in lieu of a busy hotel, and protested vehemently. Alas, 35 West 15th street was destined to become a luxury condominium building (which residents still weren’t happy about) and plans were finalized in 2011. Despite simmering anger from residents, construction has commenced, a name of 35 XV has been given, and an official site has been launched portraying sparkling renderings.

  • NYC: Building Amenities Become As Stunning As Apartments By Aby Thomas | October 01, 2012

    Building amenities are usually an afterthought for most people looking for an apartment in New York City. After all, one is concerned more with the features of the space one is going to live in rather than the extra services the building has to offer. However, if you are looking for homes within Manhattan’s luxury real estate market, where an apartment in one building is almost as resplendent as the next, then these building amenities have an added significance. In fact, recent reports suggest that the more fantastic the amenities, the more enticing the apartment becomes in the eyes of a potential resident.
