A 2011 construction accident stalled work on 61 Fifth Avenue, but the 10-story condo development eventually topped out and quietly launched sales in July of 2013. Apparently none of the building's four units sold, however, and the listings were pulled from the market this January. Douglas Elliman will be taking over the marketing from Sotheby's, which Elliman broker Fredrik Eklund revealed today on his Instagram, along with a new rendering of the building's exterior. The facade, previously a light tan, will instead be dark gray in color.
Although the new listings are not yet live, when they were on the market before the prices for the units ranged from $28.5 million for the penthouse to $12.975 million for one of the duplexes (the other two duplexes were similarly priced). According to Eklund's Instagram caption, the total sellout value will be $70 million, which means that the prices probably have not changed. He also revealed that they will be move-in ready by this summer.
UPDATE: The architect tells NY YIMBY that, "Absolutely no change whatsoever is planned for the exterior! [61 Fifth Avenue] changed sales brokers, that's all. The new broker's rendering looks darker because of the colors they used."
