  • New Condos In Manhattan Come Back to Life By Laura Simmons | December 13, 2012

    The bets are in! Seems like Manhattan’s real estate market is shifting  gears. Bankers, buyers and developers are putting money down on the belief that the condominium market is coming back to life. With many condominium developments emerging throughout the city, particularly in Manhattan and Brooklyn, the real estate market is having an increase of owners as opposed to renters. Maybe the increase of condo developments stems from the fact that many developers are competing for the “city’s tallest building” record, buildings such as One57 or 432 Park Avenue. Other residential towers outside of this competition such as 56 Leonard Street and 50 UN Plaza are also contributing to this increase in inventory.

  • Checking out a neighborhood? BlockAvenue can help By Aby Thomas | October 15, 2012

    When it comes to living in New York City, choosing the right neighborhood to live in is almost as important as choosing the right apartment. An apartment may have all the luxury features you are looking for, but if it is located in a lackluster neighborhood, then chances are that you wouldn’t be too pleased with your lifestyle there. Home hunters in Manhattan take a lot of time and effort to check out the neighborhood they might become a part of, and any help they get to do just that would be welcomed. For such New Yorkers, BlockAvenue will be like a godsend.

  • The Mystery of The Galleria's Rooftop Spaceship By Yuan Feng | August 15, 2012

    We’ve previously mentioned how NYC is constructing gardens on their roofs in a bizarre but ultimately beneficial movement for the city. But now, Manhattan has a rooftop structure that beats out even the strangest of urban rooftop gardens. At 117 East 57th Street exists a puzzling structure of glass and stacked houses that resembles a sort of greenhouse, though certainly the greenhouse of the future. Located 55 stories up off the ground, the structure is a series of connected glass houses and rooms that absolutely towers over Midtown East. And oddly enough, yes, this is actually an apartment.

  • Toronto vs. Manhattan: Vacancy Rates, Bubbles and City Growth By Justin Spees | March 13, 2012

    The housing market in Toronto, Canada has seen rapid upward movement over the past few years, sparking excitement among some developers, and fear in others that the city is headed towards an unsustainable bubble. The city has seen enormous growth in the number of apartments for sale as well as apartments for rent since 2010, when 15,000 new housing units were introduced to the market. The next year saw 18,000 new units. Realtors are projecting this number will increase to 20,000 in 2012, and stay around there over the next few years.

  • Q&A With Don Elliott: National Planning Expert Weighs In on NYC's Zoning Laws By Daniel Muhlenberg | March 09, 2012

    For anyone who's interested in buying a luxury condo in Manhattan and staying here for the long-haul, we at Elegran believe that they should have a basic understanding of New York's zoning laws, which is why we've taken the time to write a primer about the future of luxury apartments in Manhattan. It's rare to find a Manhattan real estate subject whose importance so greatly exceeds the attention it garners, especially at a time when every other new construction angle is scrutinized to no end. To further this endeavor of informing potential buyers of Mahattan real estate, we contacted Don Elliott, a national expert in urban planning, zoning, and land use, to comment on New York City’s current zoning laws. Here's what he had to say about where we are and where we're going.
