5 New Developments Coming to Market in Manhattan this Spring

Spring is typically a bustling time for the housing market, and this season has been no exception. Activity has picked up from Q1 lulls across multiple tiers of the market, but we have been observing good momentum in the luxury sector specifically.

The New Development market in New York City continues to have a pipeline of impressive projects. From a Buyer’s perspective, inventory has never been better. New Development projects are offering the best amenities, design from starchitects and renowned interior designers, as well as concessions to Buyers. Now is a great time to explore new development as a Buyer. Developers are competing amongst each other for the same set of Buyers in many instances so there are deals to be had.

Just as the market picks of the Spring, so too is New Development. Here are some of the most notable projects coming to market in Manhattan during Spring 2019.

The Centrale

If you love the Upper West Side, but do not want to live too far up, The Park Loggia is the ideal location. The SOM-designed tower, located on Broadway at 61st Street, just above Columbus Circle, will offer a convenient location and is set to bring 172 residences to the neighborhood.

Apartments will span the gamut in size, ranging from Studios to 4-bedrooms. Pricing is expected to start around $1 million and go up to over $10 million.

Building interiors are designed by renowned firm RDAI who take a similar approach to their work as Piano, highlighting craftsmanship and materials. At 565 Broome, they have found beauty in natural materials such as stone, white oak, glass, and concrete. RDAI is known for its work in global Hermes and Saint Laurent stores.

 Amenities include a private gated driveway, outdoor landscaped terrace, 55 foot swimming pool, fitness center, lounge, and library.

NYC Real Estate Tax Changes: What You Need to Know

We recently provided updates on the proposed Pied-a-terre tax that had the possibility of being passed in New York City. With the recent passing of the State budget, there has been changes to Real Estate Taxes in New York. Below is everything you need to know about the real estate tax changes as a result of the New York State budget.

Overview: The Pied-a-terre tax was not implemented. Instead, there is a newly revised and implemented Progressive Mansion Tax and Progressive Transfer Tax. This will impact those in the $2-$5M purchase range the most.

The Progressive Mansion Tax:

The new law applies to all closings that take place on or after July 1, 2019 except for those contracts that were entered into prior to April 1, 2019. This is specific to NYC contracts.

The new tax now has 8 tiers that have a higher Mansion Tax rate as purchase price escalates.

NYC Progressive Mansion Tax.jpg

The Progressive Transfer Tax:

In addition to the Mansion Tax overhaul, effective April 1, 2019, the Transfer Tax also received an overhaul.

For Residential purchases over $3 million, the NYS Transfer Tax increases from its current rate of 0.4% to a rate of 0.65%.

Additionally, for Commercial transactions greater than $2 million, the NYS Transfer Tax will increase from its current rate of 0.4% to 0.65%.

What Does it Mean for Me?

While no tax increases on property would be ideal, the above could be make less of a blow than the Pied-a-terre tax. The pied-a-terre tax would have positioned New York City as being not investor friendly and was also an annual charge -i.e. the property owner would have incurred this tax every year for owning the pied-a-terre.

As a Buyer, it is important to understand that, while yes, costs of gone up on certain transactions, these taxes are a one-time, upfront cost. The owner does not incur the Mansion Tax and Transfer tax on an annual basis as would have been the case with the pied-a-terre tax.

As was the case with the proposed pied-a-terre tax, the State has earmarked the additional revenue (expected to be $365 million) from the Progressive Mansion and Transfer Taxes to go to the failing MTA system in New York City.

 

As always, for questions about how taxes impact you, consult your qualified tax advisor who understands your personal financial sitaution

Pied-a-Terre Tax Looms Over New York City Luxury Real Estate Market

Thought taxes in New York City couldn’t get any higher? Think again. The Pied-a-terre tax is back on the docket, and it has recently gotten some major support that pushed it further along than what it was last a topic of discussion in 2014.

Ken Griffin made headlines when he purchased a penthouse at 220 Central Park South for $238 million, making it the most expensive home in the country. He plans to use the home when he visits his New York office. This headline also caught the attention of City Council who started discussion on the Pied-a-terre tax once again.

So, what is a Pied-a-terre and the proposed tax?

A pied-a-terre is a part-time second home occupied for less than half of the year. Often times, it is an investment for the owner and may not be occupied. Given that the owner’s primary address is elsewhere, owners of a pied-a-terre in New York are not subject to state or local income tax.

The current proposal has a sliding tax surcharge and fee for homes priced $5 million and over, with higher priced homes incurring higher fees. City and State officials cited that they feel this additional tax is necessary to fund the failing mass transit system in New York City.

 Cause for Concern

Regardless of whether you think it is fair to tax the rich disproportionately or not, a proposed tax plan should be assessed in regard to economic impact before being implemented. From a real estate perspective, there is cause for concern based on the proposal of a pied-a-terre tax in New York City.

International Buyers: International Buyers have already been on the decline in recent years, and the implementation of a pied-a-terre tax would likely prevent some would-be foreign buyers from investing in New York.

 Luxury Condos and Co-Ops: We would likely expect to see some sort of downtick in the luxury segment of the market. Just because a buyer can afford a $5 million apartment, does not mean they spend frivolously and love taxes. Why would they invest in New York when they could invest in another viable city that does not impose a pied-a-terre tax?

The luxury segment of the market has already been under pressure in recent years, so another tax could additional pressure that is not needed in this sector.

 New Development: An adverse impact on the Luxury Market would likely spill over to the New Development pipeline for luxury properties. If there is a decreased demand overall for properties $5 million and up, why would Developers be incentivized to build properties that may not sell? This, of course, would then have an impact on all the employment created within the construction sector when development is booming.

High Costs to Transact: New York City is one of the most expensive places to transact on property without the additional pied-a-terre tax. Costs associated with a real estate transaction in New York City include Transfer Tax, State Transfer Tax, Mortgage Recording Tax, Mansion Tax, and Real Property Taxes. Not to mention, under the new Federal Tax Code, the deduction of SALT has been eliminated.

 Overall, if the tax were to have an adverse impact on the real estate market for properties $5 million and up, we would likely see a reduction in value at the high end of the market. This may especially may be the case for properties that are already valued/priced near the $5 million threshold as Buyers will submit bids under $5 million to avoid the tax.

Why You Should Re-Consider Gary Vaynerchuck's Homeownership Comments

In a recent Podcast, Gary Vaynerchuck, known for his influential role in the media and advertising space as a leading entrepreneur, made strong remarks regarding homeownership that we would urge many to think carefully about. While there are certainly use cases that make sense for favoring renting a home, most individuals benefit greatly from homeownership.

What were his remarks, and why should you reconsider? Vaynerchuck stated that he feels buying a home is not an effective use of capital. He went so far as to state that he would rent for the rest of his life and never buy a home again.  

What You Should Consider

This is obviously a very strong statement made by Vaynerchuck as many view homeownership as part of the American Dream. When thinking about both his position and homeownership here is what you should consider:

Vaynerchuck’s Industry: Gary Vaynerchuck garnered most of his success as a tech entrepreneur. Starting companies, being an investor, etc. requires upfront capital needs that someone outside of this type of profession would not need. Thus, tying up a large portion of cash in the form of a down payment may not make sense for an investor that needs to remain more liquid. Additionally, one would reasonably expect that a tech entrepreneur would require one to be quite mobile in terms of traveling, so they would be less inclined to want to be tied down than the average person.

Equity: When you purchase a home, you are building equity in the home. Your monthly mortgage payments are going towards ownership, an asset that will be yours. When you rent, you pay your monthly rent which goes in your Landlord’s pocket – you are not working towards owning anything. Over the long term, homeownership has been the most influential vehicle for driving wealth accumulation. We have seen that, over a long time horizon, home values tend to increase, thus increasing the owner’s wealth.

Homeownership Is Not Dead: Most Americans still want to buy a home, and homeownership does make sense for a lot of people. However, the Millennial generation is struggling with homeownership because this generation is burdened with exorbitantly high student debt, coupled with high rents and costs of living in most job-hub city which makes saving for a down payment challenging for this group. As a result, Millennials are buying homes at a slower rate which leads some to believe that homeownership is dead.


That is not to say that some of Gary V’s points are not valid when put into perspective. When thinking about liquidity, we would not recommend someone purchase a home that they cannot afford. If the down payment of a home will put you in a bad financial situation, you should likely reassess your budget to ensure you are buying a property that makes sense for you financially.  

Additionally, there are use cases for renting homes that also make sense for a lot of individuals. We can conduct rent vs. buy analysis that can help clients decide what makes the most sense for them. One of the biggest things to consider when thinking about renting vs. buying is time – are you planning to only be in this location for, say, 5 years? If so, taking on a 30-year mortgage to buy a home, etc. may not make sense and renting would be more suitable if you know you are going to be changing locations relatively soon.

Best Activities & Buildings for an Active Lifestyle In New York

Active Lifestyle in NYC

Fresh Start to Active Living Around New York in 2019

New year, new you? Whether you have grand ambitions for 2019 or just want to be a little more active, there’s an outdoor or active living option for you in New York City. From group fitness classes in the warmth and comfort of a studio to exercising while enjoying the city’s outdoor spaces, here’s some inspiration for making a fresh start with active living around New York in 2019. Plus, can’t get outside? Read down to find out about the buildings offering the best amenities for living an active lifestyle without having to leave home.

Join a yoga class

Whether you’re already flexible or are wanting to become more so, there’s a yoga studio on practically every street corner in NYC. Meditative yoga, hot yoga, restorative yoga, laughter yoga, and naked yoga (yes, really) are just a few of the varieties you can check out. Plus, in the summer you can join an outdoor yoga class--strike a tree pose while being surrounded by the real thing. Bryant Park, Prospect Park, Astoria Park, and Hudson River Park offer large open spaces as well as beautiful views, and rooftop yoga is also an option. The great thing about yoga is that you can practice at home without any special equipment, so fitting active living into your daily routine is super easy.

Kayak or canoe on a waterway

Kayaking or canoeing on the water is a great way to get in shape while admiring city skyline views. The New York City Water Trail links 160 square miles of waterways across New York’s boroughs, offering almost endless options for exploring. Plus, in the summer, some free kayaking and canoeing sessions are offered on the Hudson River, East River, and New York Harbor. You can hire kayaks/canoes and gear if you don’t have your own or want to see whether the sport is for you before making a larger investment. Kayaking and canoeing can be as solitary or sociable as you like, with tandem and single boats available, making it easy to combine your workout with an accountability buddy.

Cycle the city

While the dense urban environment of New York City might not seem to offer ideal cycling conditions, cycling is growing in popularity in the city. Many New Yorkers are now cycling to work, joining cycle clubs, and making use of bicycle sharing and hiring facilities. If zipping through the city traffic doesn’t appeal, Central Park and Prospect Park encourage cycling at the weekends by limiting or prohibiting motor vehicles, so you can enjoy a ride without the worry. Plus, you can always join a spinning studio for stationary cycle fun in conjunction with loud, up-tempo music. Expect to sweat.

Hike a trail

Hiking trails surrounded by nature may be closer to the central city than you think. Just an hour or two outside the city you can find woodland, rolling hills, streams, and lakes to explore. Bronx’s Pelham Bay Park, Arden Point-Hudson Highlands State Park, Staten Island’s Green Belt, and Franny Reese State Park are just a few of the easily accessible spots within a couple of hours of NYC that offer fun day hikes suitable for the whole family. To step up the activity level if you’re an experienced runner, try trail running. Some trails can be reached via public transport, while others do require your own set of wheels.  

Dance, dance, dance

New York is famous for its vibrant dance, from Broadway to Latin to hip hop to classical. Whether you dance like no one's watching or just want to try on some dancing shoes for a while, New York is the place to get active to the beat. For group dance classes in a gym setting, try Zumba. For something a little more risque but very good for your body, pole fitness will teach you some slinky moves. To combine dance moves with yoga and Pilates exercises, head to a barre studio. Plus, you can always practice what you learn in class during a night out on the town (go easy on the alcohol if you’re trying to get or stay in shape).

Cross-country skiing

If you have your own cross-country ski gear and there’s at least 6 inches of snow on the ground (which, let’s face it, is most winters now), head to Central Park to warm up. There’s flat and gentle hilly terrain that’s suitable for a range of levels of experience. The Sheep Meadow, Great Lawn, and North Meadow areas of the park are especially good for skiing. And of course, there are great cross-country skiing destinations a little further afield upstate, if you want to make a day or weekend trip of it. Rockland Lake State Park, Fahnestock State Park, and Minnewaska State Park Preserve are all fun destinations for cross-country skiing.
