I've worked with Janine for both the purchase and the sale of my co-op. I have her to thank for finding the exact apartment I was looking for in the exact building I wanted. I honestly don't think I would have found it otherwise.

When I was ready to sell, I poked around the market for real estate agents, including Janine. Her pitch was very personal and meaningful, so I decided to go with her again. She definitely goes the extra mile when it comes to her clients, she even took care of things that needed to be taken care of on the weekends. Very little was required of me, which to me is a good agent. She also respects her client's wishes, so when you give a price and say you won't take anything less, neither will she.

I would definitely recommend her for anyone looking to buy or sell property in the city.

Jeff Greene asks $150M for 100 Vandam

Billionaire Jeff Greene has switched tactics in Hudson Square. Rather than build a 140,000-square-foot condominium project at 100 Vandam Street, as he told The Real Deal he would do, he has decided to sell the parcel for $150 million, or three times what he paid last year. The move follows a contentious rezoning of the area that will allow for bigger residential developments. The property, which includes twin sites, is being marketed with the option to demolish the existing buildings and replace them with a 290-foot-tall residential development as big as 150,000 square feet, Crain’s reported. Massey Knakal Realty Services is marketing the property.

Cornell Realty selling Williamsburg rental building

Cornell Realty Management is asking $38.5 million for a 61,000-square-foot multifamily rental building in Williamsburg. Of the 49 units, 41 are one-bedrooms that average 990 square feet. The rest are two-bedrooms averaging 1,283 square feet. The four-story building, located at 76-80 Meserole Street near Leonard Street, is 89 percent leased. Amenities include a parking garage, a virtual doorman, fitness center and furnished rooftop terrace. Eastern Consolidated’s David Schechtman, Lipa Lieberman, Gabriel Saffioti, Nicole Rabinowitsch, Abi Kassin and Gary Meese are marketing the property.

Mixed-use Dumbo building asks $34.5M

A mixed-use building at 25 Jay Street in Dumbo has hit the market for $34.5 million, according to a news release from investment sales brokerage the Highcap Group, which is marketing the property. The five-story building on the corner of Jay and John streets has 29 apartments and five ground-floor commercial spaces, one of which is occupied by coffee shop Brooklyn Roasting Company. Approved plans for a 15,000-square-foot rooftop addition that can accommodate an additional 15 apartments will be delivered with the building, according to the release. Constructed in 1920, the building was converted to mixed-use from industrial in the early 2000s.

LES conversion site on the market again

The former Eastern Dispensary building, which houses the clothing retailer Eisner Brothers, is up for sale again, at a higher price of $21 million. The detached, 12,464-square-foot prewar building at 75 Essex Street, between Broome and Grand streets, last hit the market in 2010, when the asking price was $18 million, as listed by Bond New York broker Lisa Bornstein. Bond has the listing again, but the broker is now Janine Young. The property has a parking lot and 31,776 square feet of air rights. But its fate could be as a residential property, since it is being marketed as a potential condominium conversion.

Macklowe puts UES retail up for sale

Macklowe Properties is looking to sell the retail condominium at the base of its new residential condo conversion at 150 East 72nd Street. The company has tapped a Cushman & Wakefield team, including Helen Hwang, Nat Rockett, Steve Kohn, Karen Wiedenmann, Gideon Gil and John LiGreci, to market the property, the brokerage told TRD last month. The condo, on the southeast corner of Lexington Avenue and East 72nd Street, is currently configured as four individual retail storefronts, totaling 4,000 square feet of ground-floor space and 1,300 square feet of below-grade space. There is no official price tag on the property, according to a spokesperson for the company, who indicated that the unit was expected to get around $20 million. Other sources told TRD that number was too high.


The Real Deal (11/11/2013) - LES Owner Asks $3M More for Conversion Site

The former Eastern Dispensary building, which houses the clothing retailer Eisner Brothers, is up for sale again and a bit pricier, asking $21 million.

The detached 12,464-square-foot prewar building at 75 Essex Street, between Broome and Grand streets, last hit the market in 2010 when the asking price was $18 million, as listed by Bond New York broker Lisa Bornstein. Bond has the listing again, but switched brokers – to Janine Young.

The property has a parking lot and 31,776 square feet of air rights. But its fate could be as a residential property, since it is being marketed as a potential condominium conversion.

In 2010, Eisner Brothers owner Shalom Eisner said the contract for whoever ends up taking the property off his hands will require the new owner to leave the exterior “as is,” as previously reported. He said he envisioned the property as a “single-family home for a famous person … someone like Madonna.” [Bowery Boogie] — Mark Maurer

Lower East Side Getting a New Single-Family Mansion for $4.6M

 55ludlow_6_12.jpg

When 55 Ludlow Street hit the market back in December 2009, it seemed most likely to sell as a condo conversion opportunity, with the potential for five full-floor lofts, ground-floor retail space, and a penthouse. But a buyer had a different—and perhaps better?—idea: a single-family mansion. Reps for Bond, the broker representing the buyer and the seller, tell us the place has finally sold for $4.6 million. The most recent asking price was $5,599,000, so that's a substantial discount. But the building, judging by the listing pics, probably doesn't make a great first impression.
 


Real Estate Weekly (08/08/2012) - Whats in it for us? Village Brokers Wonder What 20 Years of Construction Will Bring

 

What’s in it for us? Village brokers wonder what 20 years of construction will bring

11:07 AM, AUGUST 8, 2012

By Sarah Trefethen

The New York City Council voted last Wednesday to approve New York University’s plans to expand its campus in the West Village.

The plan includes building up, with four new towers in the 12-block area now occupied by two university-owned apartment buildings, Washington Square Village and Silver Towers, and adding below-grade classroom space. Construction is scheduled to start in 2014 and continue for 20 years.

City leaders, including Mayor Bloomberg and Speaker Christine Quinn, have championed the plan, which allows the university to add students and classroom space without leaving its Manhattan home.

But residents — including the actor Matthew Broderick and a number of NYU faculty — have been vocal in their opposition to the project, arguing that the new density of students and buildings will detract from the airy character of the Village.

Now that the plan has the green light, West Village based residential brokers are waiting to see how development will ripple into the real world of the West Village apartment market.

“Right now, there’s a shortage of apartments and they’re really expensive,” said Max Dobbins, Prudential Douglass Elliman’s executive vice president and director of sales for the West Village.

The almost two million square feet of planned construction includes classroom, office and dormitory space.

 

Max Dobens


“Maybe what that’s going to do is take a little bit of pressure off the rental market in the long run,” Dobens said of the new dormitories.

 

The median sales price for 24 homes sold in Greenwich Village in the second quarter of this year was $1,100,475, or $1,439 psf, according to the listing site Trulia.com. Asking rents listed on StreetEasy.com range from $2,500 for a studio to from $5,000 to as much as $25,000 for multiple bedrooms.

But Citi Habitats broker and Greenwich Village resident Scott Elyanow wonders what 20 years of construction will mean for the buildings near the site.

“The south village, I think, will be affected by it. I would be incredibly upset if I was in a co-op in that area,” he said.

The area west of Sixth Avenue and north of Washington Square Park will be less affected by construction, he said.

Elyanow reports that when prospective buyers hear about the expansion “it gives them considerable pause.”

He is also dismayed that city officials disregarded what he says was widespread opposition to the plan among local residents, and, like many opponents, wonders why the school’s expansion could not have happened in a neighborhood, such as the financial district, with more already-available office space.

“My neighbors, my landlord, other people that I’ve talked to who are my clients — no one is happy about this,” he said.

Prospective renters might be a little less wary.

Janine Young, of Bond New York, recently leased a three-bedroom apartment on LaGuardia Place across from the to-be-demolished Silver Towers, which will be replaced by taller buildings under the plan.

“Everybody was definitely into the fact that it got great sunlight and had a great view,” she said. “They didn’t seem to think that anything was going to happen, or that it was going to affect them.”

Ultimately, she predicts, the new school space and additional students will make the already expensive neighborhood even pricier, though the construction period might elicit some haggling on the part of renters.

“Tenants are always looking for reason to ask for concessions,” she said. However, “New Yorkers are pretty tough people. I think there’s a lid for every pot, and I really think there’s someone that will live in any apartment.”

The exact ratio of new students to new dormitory space in the development is not yet clear, leaving a big question mark over how the project will change student-driven purchases and leasing.

“I think there’s not that much inventory as there is, so that may affect other prices going higher,” said Jill Camac, a vice president and associate broker at Town Residential. “In general, it’s not adding housing to the community for non-students or faculty.”

Dobens is confident that the village market will withstand the inconvenience of construction.

“Downtown is infinitely hotter than other parts of the city. This is all econ 101, it’s supply and demand,” he said.

And opponents of the project, which Dobens says is “for the greater good,” might remember that things could be worse.

“At least they’re not tearing down historic buildings,” he said. “They’re building on their own land.”

	510 LaGuardia Place, best place of the week

JANINE YOUNG

510 LaGuardia Place is on the rental market for $14,000 a month.

 

Are you a night owl? Have a rock band? Janine Young with Bond has a listing where the landlord doesn’t care if you make plenty of noise.

One catch? You have to have plenty of cash. This 2,750 square-foot space in Greenwich Village rents for $14,000 a month. It’s got a huge open living space with three bedrooms.

“It’s a place that would be great for party animals,” Young said. “But it’s also dead quiet in the daytime, so would be great as a live workspace.”

The space is on top of Le Souk Harem, so it isn’t for light sleepers. But the clubs, like legendary CafeWha? on Bleecker St., are only a stumble away. The area is steeped in rock history, and rumor has it that Ringo Starr even stayed in the apartment when a business manager for the Beatles lived in the space.
