UPDATE, September 25, 2019, 6 p.m.: The seller of land to Related Companies and Oxford Properties for one of their Hudson Yards skyscrapers has scooped up at least seven condominiums at another property in the megadevelopment.
An entity with William A. Dalessandro as president dropped almost $61 million for the “A” condos on the 74th through 80th floors at 15 Hudson Yards, property records filed this week show. The three-bedroom sponsor units each measure between 2,300 and 2,400 square feet. Together, they span over 16,500 square feet.
Dalessandro could not be reached for comment. Related and Oxford did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
The 285-unit building is Related and Oxford’s 88-story luxury residential complex that opened earlier this year. Related Sales LLC and Corcoran Sunshine Marketing Group are handling sales at the project, whose 88th-floor penthouse is on the market for $32 million, according to StreetEasy. Amenities include a fitness center and pool on the 50th floor, a golf simulator and lounge, and a screening room and performance stage.
Related and Oxford in 2016 paid about $61 million for a ground lease for Dalessandro’s parcel at 503 West 33rd Street. It was one of the final pieces needed for the developers to construct their 58-story office tower at 50 Hudson Yards, set to be completed in 2022. Earlier this month, the developers closed on buying that parcel, property records show.
The land-condo swap is not Related’s first. Ponte Equities, which owned the land under Related’s 70 Vestry Street in Tribeca, bought back a block of apartments at the developer’s luxury tower. Ponte earlier this year closed on 15 units there for about $36.7 million.
