NEW YORK | 57th Street Corridor "Billionaires Row"

On the plus side, it has a great view of the more attractive billionaire buildings.

“Not everybody wants to live in the tallest building in Midtown,” Gordon said. “Buyers love that they only have to share the building with 59 families.”

,(The rep quoted regarding the Baccarat “Buyers.”)

Such clever semantics are used to indirectly deify the human beings fortunate enough to purchase a fortress which will not only keep out the riff-raff but do so without the tedious process of having to be admitted to a Co-op Board and then VOTE on who gets into the Gilded Red Keep and risk being identified. The small-scale, untouchable price tag does that by proxy. How REFRESHING to be spared the mockery of being called elitist snobs.

this building looks dingy and awful nowadays, Deserves a teardown, but it sounds like they’re just going to renovate it.

The new ownership has plans to convert the property into a 438-unit residential project with office and commercial space. The well-located building is one block west of Columbus Circle near Billionaire’s Row within the Clinton neighborhood of western Manhattan, along the Hudson River and the southern edge of Central Park.

The units will feature 8’ to 10’ high ceilings, hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances and quartz countertops and each unit will have in-unit washer/dryers. There will also be 30,000 sf of retail space and 25,000 sf of office space. The project is anticipated to complete in early 2023.

I read that and had the same thoughts sadly.
