Cleopatra's Needle. My brother used to be obsessed with it, and once tried to climb it.

Wow, this beauty is really getting up there. I am getting excited to see its true color once the blue film is removed.

Hope everyone is doing alright with the long shadows of late. Hang in there; only two more weeks until maximum shadow coverage, and then we're on our way out of the darkness.

:haha:

When all of the crowns on these towers are lit, it will be spectacular...

New York’s luxury market is slow. But its ultra-luxury market is booming
Sales over $25M increased 50% from 2015 to 2017



December 11, 2018


Quote:

An oversupply of product has led to slowdown in New York’s luxury real estate market, but sales of “ultra-prime” properties are continuing to climb.

Citing a Knight Frank study, Bloomberg reported that 153 properties in six cities worldwide sold at an average $43 million a house, or a total of $6.6 billion. Over the past year, 39 residential sales in New York were valued over $25 million, totaling $1.5 billion. The priciest section of New York’s residential market increased by 50 percent between 2015 and 2017, according to the report

These figures are in stark contrast to the rest of the city’s residential market, which saw an 8 percent decrease, year-over-year, in overall transaction value in the second quarter.

“In New York’s case, the story has been about the slowing market,” Liam Bailey, the global head of research at Knight Frank, told Bloomberg. “But the background is that the market has actually grown in sales, but there’s just that much more property to purchase.”

The high-end price growth in New York has been seen in other markets, too. Hong Kong had the most number of high-end sales valued over $25 million, ahead of New York, and then London.

.....According to Bailey’s research, there were about 130,000 people globally with investable assets worth $50 million or more.

That would be fantastic. The skyline needs that site as a focal point.

This one has an old timey Gotham kind of look with all the towering peaks...the peaks now just happen to start around 500 ft and up.

^ That's true. What's more is that if you look at old photos of the Central Park South skyline from even 10 years ago, it's hard to believe it existed for so long without these towers on it. There's a big change in that regard.

I know it's just temporary film, but I kind of like the deep blue color

NYguy Dec 17, 2018 4:47 AM

I think the facade will be as shiny as that little reveal...
