One of the most exclusive streets in Noho, Bond Street is receiving a few new luxury neighbors. Currently under construction is Annabelle Selldorf’s 10 Bond Street, which is selling well and receiving praise for its design. Prices start at $4.55 Million (Exclusive is with Corcoran Sunshine). BuzzBuzzHome wrote that 31 Bond Street, a six story cast-iron beauty built in the 1880’s which sold in late 2013 in an off-market deal to Josh Gurwitz’s Good Properties, has just filed its plans for residential conversion; an additional story will be added to the building and it will of course house a trio of luxurious apartments and services to match.

Over the last 20 years Noho, (generally the area between Houston and 8th Street, Broadway and Third Avenue) has evolved into one of the most exclusive residential and bohemian-chic areas of Manhattan. Read more…

I’m delighted to share that today, Thursday, February 28th at 6:30pm EST, HGTV’s Selling New York will air a new episode featuring my clients, an international couple, facing a true New York real estate challenge. The couple and their 3-year old daughter welcome twin boys into the family. Sarah and her husband quickly realize their 2-bedroom Bowery condo is too small.

New York After Hurricane Sandy – Videos, Photos, Tenant Advice, Where to Donate and Emergency Contact Information Aerial View of New York During Sandy's Blackout - Photo Credit: Iwan Baan for New York Magazine (cropped)

As Hurricane Sandy battered Manhattan I nervously watched from my 12th floor West Village Co-op while simultaneously monitoring Facebook posts by friends and acquaintances. On the 42nd floor of a No-Mad condo a friend posted a hair-raising 10-sec video of his overhead lamps swinging wildly from right to left as though he was on a ship in a storm. “What are you still doing there?” a concerned friend asked.  Where would he go, I thought? Other friends have had to leave Read more…

What is Real Estate?

What is Real Estate?

What is real estate? As I leave my office late tonight, I look at the list on my desk-wall of clients who want to buy or sell. They aren’t numbers to me. They are people: fathers, mothers, children, partners. All with a dream of owning a home or having more space. A place to create memories, to celebrate anniversaries, to laugh, to cry, to perhaps disagree and then come back together. To watch teeth fall and then the 1st sideburns grow.

This is why I do what I do. To help people make their dreams come true, as smoothly as I can. Nothing feels better than to seem them smile on closing day…and five years later. – By Tony Sargent

NY Art & Real Estate: LA Street-Artist Retna Paints Mural at Bowery Graffiti Wall

NY Art & Real Estate: LA Street-Artist Retna Paints Mural at Bowery Graffiti Wall Bowery Graffiti Wall - Photo by Tony Sargent (C) 2012

In New York, at the corner of Bowery and East Houston, the infamous Bowery Graffiti Wall (where Keith Haring put up the first mural 30 years ago) is currently host to LA based street-artist Retna. His mural, along the four story south-facing wall, served today as the perfect backdrop for this photographer and his model. Nowhere in Manhattan real estate can you feel the intimate mix of luxury condominiums along side such a vibrant culture of music, design and art, as here at the crossroads of Noho, Nolita, the East Village and the Lower East Side.

From the New Museum and The Bowery Hotel on the Bowery to the nearby Elizabeth and Mott Streets, you’ll find a delightful mix of boutique fashion and furniture retailers like Area I.D. and restaurants such as Emporio. The eclectic blocks are punctuated by some other infamous graffiti walls as is found at Jay Meisel’s 190 Bowery. Just off the Bowery on Bond Street you’ll find Ian Schrager’s super-luxury condo, 40 Bond designed by Herzog & De Meuron.

Expect to see more photos and posts on this dynamic area in the coming weeks.
