Great times for NYC!

Any chance the ugly brown building gets redeveloped?

Also, that parking lot could be a mega scraper.

I think it's already under demolition. Parts of the facade are being taken down.

50 West


Observatory @ 734' high


Quote:
Four floors of the building are devoted to amenities, not even including the Water Club, which boasts a 60-foot swimming pool, 8′ by 8′ hot tub, marble-wrapped steam room and cedar-lined sauna, with a lifeguard presiding over classes. The third floor has 15 commercial condos for really, really convenient work commutes, while the fourth-floor gym has floor-to-ceiling windows, a golf simulator and spa treatment rooms. The fifth-floor entertainment spread will have a theater with stadium seating, library, lounge, game room, demo kitchen with private outdoor space and a children’s playroom with outdoor space. The crowning amenity, quite literally, is a landscaped observatory 734 feet high, with binocular tower viewers, two barbecues, outdoor kitchen and private dining areas.

For a split second I was like whoa, how are they going to build this tower so insanely cheaply, then I realised those are prices for apartments. Derp...

Man, $18.6MM at the high end is a total steal compared to the luxury buildings going up in Midtown. If I was an investor, I'd be buying in this building -- with the trajectory of Downtown, it's not hard to see making your money back several times over. Hard to imagine flipping a $90MM apartment on 57th St. for double in a couple years.

I believe no apartment south of Chambers St has ever sold for more than $10 million (probably actually considerably lower, like $6-7 million or so), so $18.6 million is still very ambitious. (30 Park Place will clearly break a lot of records, but it's still arguably in Tribeca rather than the "real" Financial District even if south of Chambers, as Barclay St is often considered the border instead.)

This place is affordable, surprised they aren't asking triple those prices. Nice to see a decent tower can be designed and built with somewhat affordable apartments. This will have sick views, not Central Park, but over the water is pretty killer.

These are baseline prices intended to prime the pump with interested buyers. As people begin buying, the developers usually raise prices depending on the velocity of sales and the prices could easily double after the tower is 50-70% sold. Developers are the biggest flippers out there and will take no shame in juicing buyers towards the end of availability. Obviously buyers know this and will snap up as many units at these prices before they go up.

30% of the building already sold!

Time Equities launches sales at 50 West

Nearly a third of of units sold during preliminary "quiet period"

http://therealdeal.com/blog/2014/07/...es-at-50-west/

Quote:
Time Equities has launched sales at its 64-story luxury residential tower at 50 West Street and Rector Street. Following a 30-day pre-sale period, 30 percent of the building’s 191 units have already sold.

The average selling price at 50 West so far has been $2,400 per square foot, according to a release from the developer. The most expensive units, which sold for $5,000 per foot, were half-floor penthouse homes, while one-bedrooms on lower floors have gone for as low as $1,400 per square foot. Prices per unit start at about $1.6 million.

The residences range from a 1,045-square-foot one-bedroom condominium to a 9,000-square-foot, five-bedroom duplex penthouse. Thomas Juul-Hansen is the interior designer for the building and was one of the buyers during the pre-sale period.

The exterior of the building, designed by architect Helmut Jahn, offers panoramic views of the New York Harbor, Hudson and East rivers. Amenities include a rooftop lounge, children’s play areas, fitness and pool facilities. The third floor includes 15 commercial condominiums, which can be purchased by residents and used as office space, BrickUnderground reported.

Roberta Axelrod and Javier Lattanzio are handling sales in-house for Time Equities. The developer announced in February that the Marketing Directors would consult on sales and marketing for the building.

The building is scheduled to be completed in 2016. Time Equities closed on $400 million in financing for 50 West last summer.

New Look: 50 West Street

Quote:
A new video by DBOX depicts the evolution of 50 West Street, from construction to completion; the short clip comes just a few months after YIMBY’s reveal of the project, which featured a slew of fresh renderings. Helmut Jahn is the architect, Thomas Juul Hansen is designing interiors, and Time Equities is developing.

Whether construction proceeds as smoothly as the video indicates is up in the air, and excavation is still ongoing, but if the imagery is accurate, the concrete superstructure’s rise will quickly be followed by cladding, and the glassy building should take approximately two years to reach completion. The skyscraper will stand 783 feet tall, towering over nearby structures, and becoming one of the tallest residential buildings in Lower Manhattan.

I never noticed that there is a small setback near the top. After looking at the other renderings, I realize it was always there.
