The Newly Developed, The Newly Renovated

Jardim

Here are some of the three most excited buildings—from newly renovated to new construction to hit the New York City market.

Jardim

Named after the Portuguese word for “garden,” the Jardim at 527 West 27th Street, is renowned Brazilian architect Isay Weinfeld’s first construction project in New York City. The condominium’s prime location in the heart of Chelsea allows residents to enjoy the quaint and trendy neighborhood, surrounded by top restaurants, cafés, boutiques, and more. In addition, it’s right next to the Highline and near a slew of art galleries.

The two buildings that make up this development are craftily created of brick, concrete, glass, across each building's 11 floors. Just as the name suggests, the series of interior gardens brings a lush and most certainly unique element to the condominium—one that measures 40 feet by 60 feet, brimming with trees, bushes and more, sitting between the two buildings.  A number of the condos also include spectacular, private outdoor areas that elicits a zen like atmosphere.

Totaling 36 apartments that range from one to four bedrooms, starting at around $2 million, each home is crafted using materials like smoked brass and limestone accentuating the condo’s modern, open gourmet kitchen that’s delightfully detailed with its stainless steel appliances and custom cabinetry. Relaxing in the city is easy with the Jardim’s warm marble master bath that provides a spa-like experience. The floor-to-ceiling windows that slide all the way open, add to the natural aura of the condominium that illuminates the home with natural light and bringing an outdoor feel to the interior. It also has top-notch amenities such as state-of-the-art health and fitness center that includes a massage room, sky lit indoor swimming room, children’s playroom, and private storage.

550 Vanderbilt Avenue

Brooklyn’s newest development at 550 Vanderbilt Avenue perfectly exudes the neighborhood’s post-war feel. This 17 floor condo will be situated not even half an avenue away from Prospect Park and in the center of  Prospect Heights’ trendiest clubs and bars. The thoughtfully drafted design of the sleek, grey building’s exterior is designed with oversized windows as well as a nature engulfed roof. Along with the landscaped rooftop deck, the building will also feature a lounge, children’s playroom, fitness center, and access to private parking.

Each of the 278 condo’s have an open layout and high ceilings, bringing a sense of space and comfort. The natural light that comes through the massive windows accentuates the hardwood floors and guides light throughout the homes, including the open kitchen and its grey lacquer cabinets, which are are accented with a marble backsplash.

This luxurious condominium will be complete in 2017.

Ralph Walker Tribeca Residences

The newly renovated, Ralph Walker Tribeca Residences are a stunning example of historic elegance meshing seamlessly with modern finishes and fixtures. At 100 Barclay Street, the building stands tall in as an import monument in the Financial District’s rich history.

As the exterior of the building remains timeless, the apartment's interior has been renovated to include floors lined with white oak, walnut accent, marble countertops, wooden cabinetry, and brass hardware, playing with the refined and the new. Each of the 161 two to four bedroom condos include high ceilings and walls of oversized windows, including bathrooms with both granite and marble, as well as both a soaking tub and a glass shower along with radiant heating.

The gold accented roof of the building holds a pool and a terrace. Residents also have access to a fitness center, laundry room, private parking, wine cellar, as well as a screening room.
