With a recent pardon from former President Barack Obama and two Manhattan projects, both designed by Herzog and de Meuron, successfully taking shape, things are on the up-and-up for developer Ian Schrager.
Schrager’s company announced that units are nearly sold out at both 215 Chrystie Street and 160 Leroy Street, a 57- and 11-condo mixed-use tower, respectively. In fact, all but one of the luxury condos at 215 Chrystie have already entered into contract with prices ranging from $4.05 million for a one-bedroom to $23.5 million for one of the three sprawling penthouses.
At 160 Leroy, just nine of the building’s 57 units available and are even pricier than those at 215 Chrystie Street. The undulating condo building is still under construction, but more than 75 percent of its condos are either sold or in contract. Prices for this luxe project are going from $2.4 million to a staggering $49.5 million penthouse (though it was once a much bigger unit, seeking $80 million). Among the building amenities at 160 Leroy are a 70-foot pool and whirlpool spa, a yoga and pilates studio, a fitness center, a residents’ lounge, and a steam room.
A 370-room Public Hotel brand will populate the building at 215 Chrystie Street and though the lineup up for amenities has yet to be fully revealed, what we do know is that one floor will consists of a fitness center.
