NEW Penthouse Offering from the Stein Team: 92 Warren St, Offered at $7,650,000
CITY LIVING with the Stein Team

September has been a relatively active month for us as we have launched and relaunched a number of properties - most of which have been received well and have been garnering solid attention from buyers and brokers.  We have had two properties (both Upper East Side) with multiple offers (both listings have been on the market for over 6 months).  It seems buyers who took the summer off are ready to move and are out looking and, when the price is right, bidding.  

Market Update
The entrance to 740 Park Avenue, one of New York's most exclusive cooperatives. 
Co-Up Conundrum 

The cooperative market in New York City is facing stiff competition. A trend seen over the last several years, as the volume of new development condominiums throughout the city rise, the luxury co-op market, specifically on the Upper East Side, has seen a irrevocable impact. As young buyers skew more affluent than in years past, they are leaning towards Downtown living and the security of condo ownership. These luxury buyers are no longer swayed by the exclusivity or traditions of a cooperative building.

Co-op boards are starting to become aware of their sliding appeal, and some are relaxing their rules to win back buyers. Many hope that there’s a social cachet of living in these buildings that will never go out of style. But, its a safe bet to expect a wave of significant price reductions across the Upper East Side this Fall. The way most see it: if the Upper East Side wants to keep their value and their building’s value, they have to re-evaluate their policies.

Spotlight on NoHo

Tucked between the two Villages, Greenwich and East, NoHo is a small downtown enclave home to expansive lofts, chic boutiques, top-of-the-line gyms and quaint cafes. Short for North of Houston, NoHo has a reputation of being one of the most desired neighborhoods Downtown. Formerly known as the “Warehouse District,” artists and creative professionals were among the first residents of NoHo upon its transition from commercial to residential, and with New York University only a few blocks away, many of the area's residents are also students that want to live close to school.

While small, NoHo packs a dynamic punch. Dining in NoHo provides a relaxed, yet chic atmosphere. The most trendiest of those being Atla, Lafayette, and il Buco - all within a stone's throw of each other - creating a casual dining scene that’s hip, but still accessible and affordable - a brunch enthusiast's dream. 

After brunch, enjoy a production at The Public Theater, the only theater in New York that produces Shakespeare and the classics, musicals, contemporary, and experimental pieces, all in equal doses. 

And last, but certainly not least, NoHo has diverse mix of high-end real-estate options, specifically on picturesque Bond St. A new addition to the mix will be 1 Great Jones Alley. A collection of 16 two- to four-bedroom residences, designed by renowned architecture firm BKSK, 1 Great Jones Alley takes its cues from the iconic neighborhood: a terracotta facade, a cobblestone alley, and even a secret garden oasis. No surprise - the new development is one of the most sought-after Downtown - more than half of the building is already sold.
