The approaching winter suddenly seems not quite so bleak for West 12th Street's Big Three. Units at 385 West 12th Street, 397 West 12th Street, and Superior Ink have been going into contract or closing after a slow and PriceChoppy stretch. The news inspired us to do a little status check on the West 12th Street market. What's selling from among the block's new developments and for how much?
At FLAnk's 385 West 12th, StreetEasy reports seven apartments in contract between $5.795 million and $12.5 million. At the high end is the recently-PriceChopped west penthouse. And if that's what the building can do without its copper, we can only imagine it has a bright (ouch) future ahead of itself.
Nearby, at 397 West 12th Street, the development's website lists the three most expensive of the Cary Tamarkin building's five raw units as in contract. (The building was last set upon by mortal enemy the PriceChopper in October.) Prices? $7.25 million to $20 million.
The outlook is perhaps best of all over at Superior Ink. StreetEasy reports nine closed sales in October, all above $2,000 per square foot, and some above $3,000. Xerox chairwoman Anne Mulcahy and her husband are among the closers. So what if some buyers don't actually want to live there?
