CurbedWire: Mark-Up Sans Makeover, Who Needs $100M?

New, 3 comments

CENTRAL PARK SOUTH?"Who guts without renovating?" wonders a listings sleuth, who has a few things to say about this $8.25 million listing in the Essex House, a combination "ready for a buyer and their architect to redefine the space," according to the description. Our tipster says: "They bought the two units (uncombined) on July 31, 2005 for $1.35mm each. Since then, they took down all the walls. Stribling had it last year for $9.1mm, but it is 'new' with Carrie Chiang at $8.25mm. Sounds as though they are still totally NUTZ, no?" Maybe, but dizzam, those views. [CurbedWire Inbox]

FOREIGNERS?There's been chatter lately about foreign investors swooping in to buy condo units in bulk. In fact, brokerage Prodigy International claims to be near a deal to sell $40 million worth of William Beaver bits to a group of Italians. Now, Prodigy has formed Prodigy Network, which will "initially purchase approximately $100 million worth of new condominium units in New York and Miami on behalf of investors located in Latin America, Europe, and Asia," according to a press release. Muy, muy interesante. Quotage: "We are looking for new condominium projects, ranging from approximately $350,000 to $3 million per unit, with attractive discounts, in Manhattan, Brooklyn, New Jersey and Miami."
