New York is becoming Disney World for wealthy condo fanatics.
A wave of new condominium projects is coming to Manhattan by the end of the year, bringing the annual total of new apartment units to 5,300 — more than twice the number that hit the market during the same period last year, according to data provided to the Daily News by new development marketing firm Corcoran Sunshine.
“After several years of extremely limited new development introductions, the market really opened up in 2015, offering buyers an incredible amount of choice across neighborhoods and price points,” said Kelly Kennedy Mack, president of Corcoran Sunshine.
With so many new units hitting the market, developers are making their projects stand out by hiring big-name starchitects, incorporating far-out amenities and building taller than ever before.
Here are some of the sexiest new projects coming to the market this fall.
111 West 57th Street, 520 West 28th Street, 1 Great Jones Alley, Prince, The Fitzroy, 100 East 53rd Street, The Sorting House, Citizen360, The Bryant, 212 Fifth Avenue, XOCO 325 and Gramercy Square.
This condo’s yummier than a chocolate-covered candy bar.
Developer DDG is slated to launch its conversion of a former Tootsie Roll factory this fall, at 325 West Broadway. Its moniker, XOCO 325, was born out of the Catalan word for chocolate.
The project, which has a cast-aluminum façade and vertical gardens, will have 21 residences, most of which come with private terraces and balconies.
Prices start at $3 million. Corcoran Sunshine is the exclusive marketing firm.
