Manhattan Buyers Rush to the Playground

New developments build private playgrounds for apartment  buyersNew York City parents looking for a family-friendly place to raise their children have greatly influenced Manhattan real estate developers as they begin to include outdoor playgrounds as an amenity to newly constructed apartment buildings.

(Madison Square) Garden Apartment: Carmelo Anthony's Apartment Search Brings Him To The Upper West Side

Three, two, one… that’s how long it takes for freshly signed New York Knicks Carmelo Anthony to win a basketball game. But while Melo's a great talent, all those big buckets came thanks to a lot of practice. Carmelo Anthony's Upper West Side apartment searchThat work ethic should serve Melo well during his NYC condo search, since finding the right apartment in New York City takes a lot of effort as well -- whether you're Carmelo Anthony or someone shorter and less famous trying to find the right condominium in Manhattan. When he's not making shots for his employers, the Knicks’ new superstar -- and wife Alani "La La" Vazquez -- are tirelessly scoping out places in Manhattan. And although the New York Knicks have made a huge investment in the former Nugget all-star, Anthony is apparently not ready to invest in New York real estate and was originally searching for a rental apartment in a downtown condominium -- something in the, um, $30,000 a month range. What, it’s not that much if you're getting paid like he is. Now, though, Melo's sites have shifted uptown, and he has reportedly identified two all-star Upper West Side condo listings as his new top choices.

Reach For The Stars: Extell Announces Plans To Build Tallest Condominium Building in Manhattan

Extell plans to build the biggest condo building in Manhattan There are a lot of things to miss about the heyday -- it was only just a few years ago, although it feels much longer -- of NYC real estate. There was a time when new construction condos in Manhattan came on the market every week, when the streets rang with news of rezoning and new construction and condo conversions and so on. It was... honestly, probably a bit much, and not nearly as great a time to find a condo for sale in Manhattan as today's more chilled-out real estate climate. But the market is turning itself around as we speak, and proof is everywhere you look, both on the New Construction Manhattan blog and elsewhere. But if you need proof that the grandiosity of old is returning to Manhattan real estate, look no further than the news that condo developer Extell and star architect Christian de Portzamparc just announced plans to build the tallest condominium in Manhattan at 57th Street and 7th Avenue in Midtown West. Hurray?
