Pop Up Parks in NYC Parking Spots, aka Street Seats!

August 26, 2017

Great, short article in the NY Times about some temporary parks popping up in parking spots over the summer.

From the article (no paywall):

The space felt intimate and, dare we say, calm, even as cars whizzed by a few feet away. The Ipe (Brazilian walnut) wood flooring, arranged like a boardwalk deck, is surrounded by bright yellow scotch broom shrubs, purple Russian sage plants and coral bells that hang in brown fabric pouches on a fence made of bamboo. Solar panels collect energy to power the park’s L.E.D.s at night.

August 16, 2017

Extell, the massive Billionaire's Row developer responsible for One57 unveiled the proposed pricing for the premium units in their upcoming project, Central Park Tower, which includes 20 units priced at $60 million!

Since 2012, there have been just 61 sales of residential properties for north of $30 million in Manhattan, according to The Real Deal’s analysis of closed sales. Of those sales, 21 closed at $40 million or more and just 13 traded for over $60 million. Even in 2015, when the market was on amphetamines, only four sales at $60 million or above were recorded. This year so far, three sales have closed at over $60 million.
