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 overall design and approach to the project is an expression of key materials.

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.

Greenwich West Launches in SoHo

110 Charlton Street.jpg

SoHo, historically known for its converted luxury lofts and lack of amenity filled buildings is experiencing a new wave of development, bringing luxury condos outfitted with full amenities to the neighborhood. One particular area, Hudson Square, has become an enclave for luxury developments in SoHo. Greenwich West is the latest luxury development to bring a full-service building to SoHo. 

Located at 110 Charlton Street, Greenwich West will rise 290 feet tall and be comprised of 170 condos. The development just launched sales, and we were among the first to get an inside look during their launch event.

Sebastien Segers Interiors

 Greenwich West is designed by a collaboration between two Parisian Firms – Loci Anima and Sebastien Segers. Adamson Associates is the architect of record for the project. The design team was inspired by the iconic industrial architecture of West SoHo but applied an infusion of classical French inspiration. This is especially evident in the interiors which are warm and inviting, yet do not lose their “downtown” feel and modernism.

Greenwich West Interior.jpg

Residences will range in size from Studios to 3 bedrooms with prices starting at just under $1M. Construction is currently underway and is expected to wrap up in 202.

Waterfront Development Offers Buyers Yacht Access

via

From Manhattan to Brooklyn, developers are snagging up some of the last waterfront parcels to develop what will be the next wave of trophy properties and coveted buildings. Examples in 70 Vestry Street in Tribeca, The XI in West Chelsea, and One Manhattan Square.

In a luxury market that is saturated with inventory, developers are continuing to entice and innovate when it comes to amenity offerings. The latest waterfront property to grab the attention of buyers seeking amenities is One Seaport in Lower Manhattan. What is better than waterfront living coupled with a yacht? Nothing some would argue!

One Seaport, built by Fortris Group, has partnered with members-only yachting service Barton + Gray Mariners Club. Residents will be able to walk out the lobby and onto a Hinckley Yacht. Currently, residents are entitled to 3 complementary yacht excursions a week. There will be an extra charge for fuel and champagne. This amenity for residents of One Seaport packs value as a membership to Barton + Gray Mariners Club would normally set you back $20,000-$50,000 a year.

via

One Seaport has been a popular new development in the heart of the revitalized Seaport District, luring buyers with an expansive amenity offering, luxe finishes, and wonderful water views. The residences are completed with luxurious finishes such as gold calcutta marble backsplashes, Gaggenau appliances, and grey limestone in the bathroom. The full suite of building amenities includes a port-cochere, fitness center overlooking the water with Brooklyn Bridge views, and a “Water Club” on the 30th floor with hydrotherapy and a pool.

via

The building is currently 75% sold, however, we do expect additional inventory to be released for the fall selling season.

This particular amenity offering comes at an interesting time when the city has been expanding the NYC Ferry System on the East River. Commuters are looking for alternatives to the crowded, unreliable subway system. Many wealthy commuters have opted to take Uber to and from work given the convenience and relatively the lost cost compared to a monthly transit pass.

In an effort to get people out of the crowded subway system and onto the water, the city has pledge some $600 million over 5 years towards the NYC Ferry program.

For those looking to take cruising the East River and beyond to a new level, the private yacht offering at One Seaport is certainly the way to go!

Waterline Square Releases First Penthouse to Market

The luxury market remains hot like the summer in New York! The July 4th week marked the 23-straight week of 20+ luxury properties going into contract in Manhattan. In addition to properties going into contract, exciting luxury product continues to come to market, especially in new developments.

We previously wrote about the launch of Waterline Square, the mega project on the Westside between 59th and 61st Streets spearheaded by 3 Starchitects – Kohn Pederson Fox, Richard Meier, and Raphael Vinoly. Waterline Square launched sales last summer and was ranked the fastest selling new development in 2017. Each of the 3 buildings has now topped out, and progress continues to be made onsite.

Two Waterline Penthouse.jpg

The first of the buildings’ penthouses has hit the market at Two Waterline Square designed by Kohn Pederson Fox. Two Waterline will be the tallest of the 3 buildings in the complex. The penthouse, on the 38th floor, is comprised of 4 beds and 5.5 baths with 4,134 interior square feet of space plus an outdoor terrace spanning 1,850 square feet. We ranked our favorite properties with private outdoor space, but this will certainly need to be added to the top of the list! The penthouse also features a fireplace in the living area and dramatic floor-to-ceiling glass throughout.

Two Waterline Penthouse Masterbath.jpg

The home is asking $17.25M.

We expect that the terrace will offer stunning views and wonderful sunsets given the buildings waterfront location. The terrace also includes a hot tub and outdoor grill and will be accessible from both the master bedroom and the living area.

Two Waterline Square Terrace.jpg

The Penthouse comes with access to the Waterline Club which will offer residents an unparalleled amenity experience. Most notably, the Waterline Club will house New York City’s first indoor tennis court attached to a Condo.

Waterline Club.jpg

In addition to the Waterline Club, Two Waterline has its own 11,000 square foot amenity floor which offers private dining with a kitchen, a salon, and a river-view lounge with billiards, bar, and a library.

More about Two Waterline Square

With a design accentuated by a series of ascending, set-back terraces atop the building, Two Waterline makes a striking statement at Waterline Square. Designed by John Pedersen Fox, who is known for glass towers that punctuate skyline, this building makes no exception to this rule. The base of the building will be home to a porte-cochere to welcome residents home.

Homes are designed around the floor-to-ceiling windows that allow the homes to take advantage of the building’s waterfront setting. Yabu Pushelberg has selected natural materials to use throughout such as kitchens done in chic and modern white marble with warm wood accents and white lacquer cabinets.
