  • Rentals-in-demand

    The west side of Manhattan – specifically Chelsea, the West Village and the Upper West Side – was the go-to spot for prospective renters searching for a one-bedroom apartment last week, according to Zumper, an apartment listings website. Chelsea was the most in-demand Manhattan neighborhood overall, followed by the West Village, Murray Hill, Central Harlem and Greenwich Village. The West Village was No. 1 the previous week.

    Demand was evenly divided among the apartment types, ranging from studios to three-bedrooms — signifying a rare surge in interest for the latter. [more]

    104-111 Eighth Avenue

    More than 12 businesses along Eighth Avenue between West 14th and West 23rd streets shuttered last year and early this year as retailers struggle to pay rising rents.

    The result is many empty storefronts lining the Chelsea stretch. The bar Rawhide at 212 Eighth Avenue; clothing shop Camouflage at 139 Eighth Avenue; and Pinkberry at 170 Eighth Avenue are gone. Rawhide’s rent jumped to $27,000 per month from $15,000 per month, leading the owners in March 2013 to leave the space, which has not yet been filled. [more]

    Yair Levy and 47-55 West 28th Street

    Developer Yair Levy is said to be behind the purchase of Tin Pan Alley — a series of five four-story rowhouses on West 28th Street between Broadway and Sixth Avenue in Chelsea — in order to convert them to condominiums, the blog Lost City reported, citing unnamed sources.

    The houses at 47-55 West 28th Street hit the market for a total of $44 million in 2008 on the eve of the market crash, as The Real Deal reported. A plan to replace them with a high-rise fell through. The properties came back on the market in April, with Massey Knakal Realty Services handling sales. All retail units in the buildings were offered vacant. [more]
