The hottest real estate trends in NYC right now
It’s hunting season. House-hunting season, that is.
New Yorkers on the prowl for a new home this fall have plenty of options to consider, thanks to a number of rental and condo developments that have recently launched (or soon will).
New Development: leasing starts at ARO, Amberly hits luxe rental market
Leasing has begun at ARO, a new 62-story, 426-unit luxury rental tower developed by Algin Management, designed by CetraRuddy Architecture, and located at 242 West 53rd Street in Midtown West.
A Home at the Center of the City: 10 of the Best Midtown Rentals
As the name would imply, Midtown is in the center of New York. It's also at the center of it all, with food, culture, entertainment, business, parks, very accessible transportation, and on and on. The one thing it doesn’t really have is a distinct residential neighborhood feel - or does it? CityRealty compiled a list of 11 midtown rental buildings (and their current special offers) that are doing their best to make Midtown more homey.
ARO Launches Leasing At 252 West 53rd Street In Midtown Manhattan
Covered from top to bottom in a sleek facade of curved glass corners, tall windows, and white paneling, ARO is a 738-foot, 62-story residential tower that has risen from the former site of the Roseland Ballroom in Midtown, Manhattan. Located at 242 West 53rd Street between Eighth and Ninth Avenues, the new structure contains nearly 450,000 square feet designed by CetraRuddy Architecture. Algin Management is the developer, and leasing is being led by Triumph Property Group, and has now commenced for the 426 available apartments.
Roseland Ballroom-replacing rental launches from $2,900/month
The Roseland Ballroom-replacing rental building designed by CetraRuddy Architects has now launched leasing, five years after the project was first announced. The 62-story building, located at 242 West 53rd Street, has a total of 426 apartments up for grabs with rents starting at $2,900/month.
New NYC apartments for rent: Fall 2018
Fall is just around the corner, which can only mean one thing: New York’s real estate market is about to pick up, and quickly.
ARO Residential Tower Gives the Former Roseland Ballroom a New Look
In a sea of iconic skyscrapers, it's a challenge to stand out in midtown Manhattan. One firm's strategy? Toss aside the rulebook completely. For its new luxury residential tower, architecture and interior design studio CetraRuddy—helmed by John Cetra, FAIA, and Nancy J. Ruddy—eschewed architectural norms of the area in favor of a slick, curved high-rise clad in a web-like white steel and glass exterior. The 62-story tower (called ARO) houses 426 residences and will begin leasing this September. The new addition to the Manhattan skyline has already amassed several design awards, including winner of the American Architecture Prize (2017), winner of the Architecture Podium International Award (2017), and winner of the SARA National Award (2015).
Next Act for Roseland Ballroom Site
Roseland Ballroom, the popular concert and dance hall on West 52nd Street, between Broadway and Eighth Avenue, saw plenty of fishnet on its dance floor through the years. Fishnet tank tops at the disco parties of the 1980s. Fishnet stockings when Lady Gaga performed at the auditorium’s final shows in 2014, shortly before the building was torn down.

Only Four Condos Remain at The Hendrik in Boerum Hill; See Photos of Finish
Almost exactly a year after sales launched at The Hendrik, only four units remain on the market and the façade is nearly complete. Designer Beyer Blinder Belle was inspired by Boerum Hill’s industrial past; to that end, the façade is made of Petersen brick, a Danish handmade, coal-fired brick that brings a unique tonality to the six-story building.

Hunting season has officially begun.
House hunting, that is.
Brokers are using virtual reality headsets to sell apartments
This spring, Amol Shah and his husband Jens Audenaert were intrigued by an Upper East Side apartment they saw online, so they did what any prospective buyers would do: They took a tour.
Shah, 33, who works in ad sales at Facebook, and Audenaert, 37, a Fortune 500 company exec, started on the street just outside the building, called Vitre.
The Hendrik Nears Completion At 509 Pacific Street, Boerum Hill, Brooklyn
The Hendrik is nearing completion, and today YIMBY has an update on the project, at 509 Pacific Street, in Boerum Hill, Brooklyn, thanks to Tectonic. The building is a large development, with 33 condominiums designed for families who love townhouses and modern amenities. Scaffolding on Atlantic Avenue and Pacific Street still remains and sheds along the sidewalk obscure vision of the entranceway and masonry along Pacific Street, as seen in the rendering, but the Beyer Blinder Belle-designed exterior is just about finished.
ODA New York 2222 Jackson Ave
One of the most enticing amenities for residents buying or renting an apartment in a big city is outdoor space, yet in far too many cases the balconies hung off of buildings are too shallow to be of much use. Such is definitely not the case with ODA's new rental apartment building at 2222 Jackson Avenue in Long Island City, Queens, where sizable terraces are provided and become the project's main architectural expression. ODA sent us some text and images about the eleven-story building.

Has Brooklyn peaked?

Be the first person to live in this brand new Hunters Point two-bedroom
Ah, the joys of being the first person to live in an apartment! Especially when you don't have to shell out millions of dollars to do it, and don't have to pay a fee.

Partial Reveal Of Six-Story, 33-Unit Mixed-Use Project At 509 Pacific Stree
Back in August of 2015, YIMBY reported on applications for the six-story, 29-unit mixed-use building at 509 Pacific Street, in Boerum Hill. Now, Curbed NY has updated details on the project, as well as the first partial renderings revealing the structure’s exterior. The 114,812-square-foot building, dubbed the Hendrik, will actually feature 33 residential units, averaging 1,680 square feet apiece. The apartments will be condominiums, ranging from two- to four-bedroom configurations. Per the Schedule A, amenities will include a fitness center and a 12,725-square-foot parking garage in the sub-cellar. There will also be 16,293 square feet of retail space across the ground and cellar levels. Hopestreet and AEW Capital Management are the developers, with Beyer Blinder Belle behind the design. The site’s old Walgreens store was demolished in 2015 and completion of the new structure is expected in 2017.

More and more condos keep coming to Boerum Hill, with the Hendrik, a new development by Hopestreet, the latest to join other projects like The Boerum, The Nevins, and Morris Adjmi's 465 Pacific Street. The latest one will rise on the site of a former Walgreen's drugstore, which was demolished in 2015. And like those other developments, condos at the Hendrik won't come cheap—apartments are due to start at $1.5 million and rise from there. The building will be designed by Beyer Blinder Belle (known for projects like the Whitney Townhouses and Downtown Brooklyn's Belltell Lofts), and will feature amenities like a lot of green space—there will be courtyards and terraces aplenty. Sales for its 33 two- to four-bedroom condos are set to launch sometime in the next few months, and the building should be completed by 2017.

Developers are transforming the architectural landscape of the entire city, resculpting its skyline.

Here is a selection of new condo and rental developments and conversions coming to a Brooklyn corner soon:
First Look Inside ODA New York's Luxe Long Island City Rentals
ODA New York's cantilevering building rising in Long Island City is hitting the rental market this spring (along with dozens of other developments), but looks into the new building have been limited—until now. The Post got a peek at new renderings of the 175-rental building's interiors, the first put on display. The studios to three-bedrooms of 2222 Jackson will hit the market in April asking from $2,600. Tenants can expect the luxe rental to have the amenities du jour: an attended, triple-height lobby; valet parking; a resident roof deck; and, via a membership, access to the building's gym, pool, and resident's lounge.
Here’s a new reason to move to Queens
