    Which amenities are popular in new buildings today, and how has that
    changed over the past year?

    Amenities still create value — that
    hasn’t changed. The strength of sales at a building like the Rushmore,
    one of the most amenitized buildings in Manhattan, demonstrates that new
    development buyers still want the complete package. That being said,
    are there other developers who are scaling back on amenities during
    predevelopment? Some are.

  • The first section of the High Line opened last month, and brokers at residential projects in the area say sales traffic has increased as people rush to the West Side to see the elevated park.

  • An unsuspecting pedestrian might well believe, as he walked down 18th
    Street between 9th and 10th avenues, that 459 and 447 West 18th Street
    is comprised of one building. To the west this composite reads as a
    sturdy affair of masonry and metal cladding and to the east, a stunning
    glass curtain wall in various shades of blue. On closer
    inspection, however, it becomes clear that these are two entirely
    different developments. Surely the recently completed buildings are
    jarringly divergent from a stylistic perspective, but that very
    incongruity is so much a part of contemporary taste that it looks, in
    the present instance, like a daring post-modern conceit. more
