HARLEM?The Gold Coast is still shining. FDB's The Douglass (right) just received its TCO, paving the way for closings and move-ins. The 38-unit building is now 75% sold after eight months, and the remaining residences are two- and three-bedroom apartments priced from $649,000 to $829,000. [CurbedWire Inbox]
DOBRO?Zombie building be@schermerhorn in Downtown Brooklyn got preliminary approval for FHA financing, joining the crowded field of buildings offering itty bitty down payments to buyers. There are accepted offers on 42% of the 246 units, and more than half of those have reached the contract inking stage. [CurbedWire Inbox]
SOHO?Much has been made of the return of the real estate party, but things haven't been quite as over-the-top as they were in their pre-2008 heyday. Or so we thought. While neighborhoods like Williamsburg are opting for fried chicken and beer at their condo marketing blowouts, Soho is taking no prisoners. Check out this invite-only party being sponsored by Soho Mews next week. They're shutting down Wooster Street!
Classic cars from the Classic Car Club, Jupiter’s MotoShare motorcycles, personal grooming services, wine tastings, Johnnie Walker Scotch sipping, Kelvin Natural Slushies and Calypso clothing and home accents will be among the products and services featured at the Soho Living Experience sponsored by the Soho Mews on Tuesday, July 27 from 6 to 9 p.m. at 311 West Broadway, Manhattan. The festival will feature the very best Soho has to offer and attendees will get a chance to win a weekend in the classic car of their choice, a SoHo Grand Hotel package and admission to a fashion/arts benefit. Wooster Street between Canal and Grand streets will be closed to accommodate the classic cars while classic motorcycles will be on display in the Soho Mews’ 4,000-square-foot garden.
