In January, a joint endeavor between Madison Equities, Building and Land Technology (BLT) and Thor Equities received a $275 million construction loan to acquire and complete the gut renovation of 212 Fifth Avenue.

Virgin Hotels Brings New Vision to Nomad

Nomad’s moment has been going strong for years. The neighborhood north of Madison Square Park (hence the acronym) has seen a huge influx of building renovations the past half decade. New construction has been rare though, with 241 Fifth and the much anticipated 400 Park Avenue South as the shiny new pioneers amidst pre-war condo conversions; but that’s all about to change.   

What Can Prosciutto Do For You? Murray Hill Condos, Mario Batali and "The Eataly Bump"

Eatily and Murray Hill CondosWe've written several times in the past about NoMad, which is the not-so-convincing but also not-so-bad name given to the rising neighborhood on the fringes of Murray Hill and Gramercy Park. We wrote about NoMad not because we're lovers of real estate conjuncto-neologisms -- although, of course, who isn't? -- but because it's actually a really interesting young neighborhood, and home to a couple of very promising luxury condo listings in Twenty 9th Park Madison and Sky House. More importantly, though, NoMad has a real buzz about it, thanks in large part to destination hangouts like Ace Hotel. To say that Eataly, the blockbuster new Mario Batali-helmed Italian food emporium, has become one of NoMad's signature landmarks is a huge understatement. Eataly, in just a few short months in business, has helped make NoMad one of Manhattan's hottest food neighborhoods -- and boosted this sub-neighborhood's fortunes even higher. Especially among those of us who enjoy prosciutto.

From Non-Neighborhood To Neighborhood: Meet NoMad, The Rising Murray Hill-ish 'Hood North of Madison Square Park

NoMad Murray Hill Luxury CondosIf you browse the Manhattan apartment listings at New Construction Manhattan, you won't find anything under "NoMad." You'll find apartments for sale in Murray Hill and Gramercy Park condos for sale, but nothing on apartments for sale in NoMad. This is not an oversight -- until brokers slapped a name on the area just north of Madison Square Park in what's generally thought of as Murray Hill, NoMad didn't exist. But this is more than the usual Fun With Contractions NYC real estate name game -- the stretch of Murray Hill that we'll now (somewhat grudgingly) call NoMad is indeed on the rise, whatever one chooses to call it. (Not to pat ourselves on the back too much, but we wrote about this back in August) With a feature in the Wall Street Journal touting the new semi-neighborhood's transition into a full-on neighborhood, though, NoMad has gotten its imprimatur as a Manhattan neighborhood to watch. Which is to say that you'd better get used to that name, like it or not.
