New, 2 comments

BATTERY PARK CITY?Rental-to-condo building 1 Rector Park was the area's best selling building in 2012, selling 57 units. That brings the project to 90 percent sold. The website shows nine available units, ranging from a $675,000 594-square-foot studio to a three-bedroom, three and a half bath townhouse listed for $2.425million. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]

NYC?PropertyShark combed through the records to find the most expensive neighborhoods of 2012, and there was a bit of a surprise in Brooklyn. Little ol' Boerum Hill surpassed Dumbo as the borough's priciest 'hood, reaching a median sale price of $950,000. It was the sixth most expensive overall, topping the West Village, Upper East Side, and Flatiron (remember, this is a median price, so outlying blockbuster sales are eliminated). Soho took the top prize, with Tribeca following as a close second, reaching median prices of $2.2 million and $2.13 million respectively. [CurbedWire Inbox; official]

FINANCIAL DISTRICT?Manhattan borough president Scott Stringer has written to the building manager of 1 West to voice his support for the tenants, who are still dealing with a lot of Hurricane Sandy-related issues. His letter suggests that the building should give residents written notification of when the generator has to be shutdown at least three days beforehand, and they should schedule these shutdowns for times most convenient for the tenants. Sounds reasonable. Click through for the whole letter. [CurbedWire Inbox; official]
