One Rector Park is 87% Sold; Atlantic Yards Groundbreaking

New, 2 comments

BATTERY PARK CITY?One Rector Park has passed the 85 percent sold mark. A sales rep notes that a selling point for the remaining apartments in the 174-unit building will be the fact that it did not take on any water during Hurricane Sandy, and, more impressively, had power throughout the storm. How can that be? "While Battery Park City is in Zone A, a small pocket of the neighborhood receives its power from Brooklyn," says the rep. StreetEasy shows 27 active sales listings, and it looks like all types of units except two-bedrooms are still available. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]

PROSPECT HEIGHTS?Mark your calendars and clear your schedules, the first Atlantic Yards tower breaks ground next week on Tuesday, December 18. We've waited more than eight years for this day! Will Bruce Ratner cry again? Maybe. Will we get to see one of the modules? Probably not. Will the building be the tallest modular construction in the world? Most definitely.
