High Five: High Line Phase Two Will Extend to 30th Street -- Will Real Estate Boom Follow?

NYC condos for sale near High LineIf you follow Manhattan real estate, you are familiar with The High Line. And if you don't follow Manhattan real estate, and are in town for a convention or to see the sights or check out Anything Goes on Broadway or whatever... well, welcome to the New Construction Manhattan blog, and we'll presume you're also familiar with The High Line. After just a few short years on the West Side, the winding, lushly landscaped park that runs on the former freight train tracks above 10th Avenue has become both one of Manhattan's must-visit venues and one of the greatest success stories in Manhattan real estate. While Chelsea condo listings were, truth be told, doing pretty all right before the High Line went from random-old-elevated-train-tracks to hugely popular public park, the arrival of the park gave a huge boost to apartment listings near the High Line, and helped occasion the development of such blockbuster, star-architect-designed high-end condominium listings as HL23, +Art, 456 West 19th Street and Nouvel and Chelsea Modern. And with the opening of the High Line's second stage -- which will run from 20th Street all the way up to 30th Street -- on June 8, the High Line looks likely to work its real estate magic again, this time for North Chelsea and the emerging and highly promising Hudson Yards neighborhood bearing the goofy-ish nickname The Linc.

New York Burger City: Two Manhattan Neighborhoods Get Prime Burger Outposts

Apartments near Places to Eat in NYCAt New Construction Manhattan, we are not unaware that people browsing Manhattan apartment listings are often looking for different things. This is why we've built our advanced condo search function so that NYC apartment hunters can search condos in specific price ranges and apartments near specific landmarks and so on. It's our hope that a more focused and specific way to search Manhattan condos will lead to a more satisfying and successful experience. That said, there is not currently a search function at NCM that enables you to find an apartment located near a delicious hamburger. For that, we use the NCM blog. No, seriously: we've covered food-related real estate news pretty extensively in the past, and we're not going to stop doing that. We do it for you, readers. And also we do it because we're hungry, and because (in this specific case) Shake Shack is delicious. And so it is with no small amount of delight that we inform New Construction Manhattan readers that condo listings in Battery Park City will very soon be rental listings near a delicious hamburger. And we are further pleased to announce that they are not alone.

(Re)Birth of a Neighborhood: Hudson Square Is Ready For Its Close-Up

THudson Square birds eye viewhe first rule of Manhattan real estate -- of real estate in general -- is said to be "location, location, location." Which, as conventional wisdom goes, isn't the silliest thing in the world. But Manhattan real estate observers could be forgiven, in recent years, for believing that at least one of those "location"'s could be swapped out for "branding." New Manhattan neighborhoods are nothing new -- New York City is a study in flux, and all it takes is one zoning decision and a few bold real estate developers to turn a neighborhood like the nowheresville around the Lincoln Tunnel entrance into "The Linc," a newly branded Manhattan neighborhood between Chelsea and Midtown West that comes complete with its own new construction condo listings and superstar condos such as The Atelier. What sets Hudson Square apart from The Linc, besides a much cooler name, is that this new neighborhood is actually one of Manhattan's oldest. Hudson Square is, for all intents and purposes, West Soho.
