March Manhattan Residential RE Market Snapshot: A Song of Ice & Fire

Only three months into 2015, Manhattan is already ringing the cymbals in two polar aspects.

In January and February, the city saw one of the most brutal winters in 20 years. The first major winter storm warning in January turned out to be a dud, but the snow was persistent and just kept coming back.

On a seperate front, in the past six months ending in February, the closings are coming and are expected to continue. For past readers of my blog, you have seen most active buildings concentrate in Harlem and downtown financial district. In this month’s snapshot, we can see that buildings are closing in every single neighborhood like wildfire across a plain.

The top three buildings with most recorded closes are:

  1. One Morningside, Morningside Height, 321 West 110th St (45)
  2. Huys, NoMad, 404 Park Avenue South (45)
  3. 325 Lexington, Midtown East (41)

Honorable mentions:

  • 456 West 167th St – Edgecombe Parc in Washington Heights
  • 101 Leonard in Tribecca
  • Baccarat Hotel & Residences in Midtown East

The Puck Penthouse

The Field Team’s exclusive Puck Penthouse apartments are truly remarkable apartments for those who seek convenience as well as style in one of the trendiest neighborhoods in Manhattan (if not the world). There are six apartments in the building currently available for sale. The prices range from $20 million to $66 million. The price doesn’t tell the whole story about how posh these apartments are, so I included some pictures that I shot when I visited the duplex unit last week. Professionally shot photographs and details about the apartments can be found on Sotheby’s website.
