Bevy of NoMad condo projects quickly find buyers

June 27, 2013 01:30PM

NoMad is awash with new residential and hotel construction, and buyers are signing contracts for new condominiums at a brisk pace, the New York Post reported.

At Huys, a new 58-unit condo that went on the market in March, units are now over 50 percent in contract. Similarly, 241 Fifth Avenue, a 45-unit building roughly a block north of Madison Square Park, marketed by Core’s Doron Zwickel, is already 70 percent sold, as The Real Deal reported. It will be move-in ready this summer, the Post said. And the four-unit Whitman, on the park’s northern edge, reportedly sold a unit to Chelsea Clinton and still has a $25 million, 6,540-square-foot penthouse available. Melanie Lazenby and Dina Lewis of Douglas Elliman are handling sales.

South of the park, the Related Companies and HFZ Capital Group are soon restarting sales at One Madison Park, and Bruce Eichner’s firm Continuum is gearing up to Launch A Project On East 22nd Street.

The neighborhood is also a heavyweight on the hotel front, with the 190-roomn SLS hotel slated to open at 444 Park Avenue South next year and Virgin Hotel on 29th Street and Broadway set to open in 2016.

NoMad residents will also get a boost on the home dining front this summer when a Fairway opens at the base of the 33-story Chelsea Landmark On Sixth Avenue And 25th Street, as The Real Deal reported. The 23,000-square-foot space will come complete with organic and specialty foods, the Post reported. [NYP]Julie Strickland
