“Flatiron Building, Admired but Rarely Copied, Inspires Developers”

New York is awash with architectural imitators: the rows of identical 19th century brownstones, the spires and setbacks of the Art Deco era, the Seagram Building knockoffs strewn around Midtown. Manhattan in the 1960s and '70s, the luxury fishbowls rising now.

Yet one of the city's favorite landmarks, the Flatiron Building, with its prow looming over Broadway and Madison Square Park, has been rarely copied. At least. not until now.

New York developers prefer to stick to the grid. This results in buildings that are square — in ambition as much as aesthetics — but as the cost of land, particularly in Manhattan, has increased, builders have begun to look to odder-shaped plots.

“New NYC Apartments Hitting the Market, Spring 2016”

The weather is turning warmer and flowers are finally in bloom, which can only mean one thing: spring has arrived.

And that can only mean one thing: it's time to look at the many, many, many apartments—both rentals and condos—that will be hitting New York's real estate market in the next few months. Across more than 40 developments, there are starchitect-designed condos (your Selldorfs, Sterns, and Pianos among them) and super-pricey, family-friendly apartments, along with under-the-radar outer-borough rentals and apartments that are deemed "affordable luxury."

It's a lot to take in, and as always, if we missed anything, the tiplin e is right this way.

It's hard to consider $2,000 per square foot a bargain, given that $1,645 is the average for Manhattan. But when those square feet sit right across the street from Central Park, a bargain it just might be.

While the thoroughfares lining New York's most famous green space — Fifth Avenue, Central Park South, Central Park West — are among the most expensive and exclusive in the city, real estate along the park's northern border of 110th Street has long lagged behind.

That's changed in recent years as developments like Robert A.M. Stern-designed One Museum Mile, which opened in 2012, set new area price records, and projects like Artimus Construction's One Morningside Park and, now Circa Central Park have brought new levels of luxury to the area.

This time, the site of a onetime BP gas station is being transformed into a curved condominium with a distinctive modern look that is changing Frederick Douglass Circle, on the northwest corner of Central Park at West 110th Street.

When it opens next year, with both market-rate and affordable units, the condo will have set-back walls of tinted glass and protruding white horizontal metallic bands that wind around the traffic circle and curve gently round the corner toward Frederick Douglass Boulevard. The street, one of Harlem’s main avenues, is home to a new wave of condo and rental buildings, restaurants, cafes and bars.

“5 Ways Luxury Buildings Are Trying to Woo Tweens”

MANHATTAN — Having a children's playroom for tenant use — for the elementary school set and younger — has been a standard amenity in new developments for more than a decade. But now developers have realized that if they want to attract families and keep them longer, it's all about providing what tweens and teens want.

Mini arcades, study rooms, kids fitness rooms and even a soundproof music studio where kids can jam without their parents worrying about offending their neighbors are just a few of the amenities on the rise in luxury buildings that have been increasingly catering to older children, experts told DNAinfo New York.

UPPER WEST SIDE — While the luxury boom in the southern end of the neighborhood continues, developers have rushed to its northern edge as well, and local families are feeling the pinch of escalating prices, experts said.

Investment in the northern section, from roughly West 96th Street to West 115th Street — which some argue was set off by the arrival of the Columbus Square development in 2009 — has accelerated in the past two to three years, said Shlomi Reuveni, managing director of Town New Development.

In that 14-block range, there are no fewer than seven residential developments either soon to be under construction, currently under construction or already accepting applications to rent or buy units.

The development called Circa on the Park has 11 floors all together if one counts the penthouse levels and there will be a total of 49 condos. Reportedly 38 of those units will be market rate and an affordable element will be part of the mix.

One to five bedroom apartments will be available starting at $970.5K at the semi circular new construction with Central Park views when finished up along with community space on the ground floor. This location is also just by the 110th Street local train stop and thus is quite ideal for this residential tower that sits on a former gas station lot at the southern border of Central Harlem.

The Times says condos in the development will ask from $1 million for a one-bedroom; a high water mark for the neighborhood, but on par for new developments elsewhere in the city with Caesarstone quartz counters, master baths with marble floors, and building perks like a fleet of remote-controlled model boats intended for use at the nearby Harlem Meer for the borrowing.
