 Exterior Rendition

Well….not at the actual Bryant…considering so far it is just a hole in the ground, but I did attend a broker’s open house and was able to see the finishes for the bathrooms and kitchens as well as a miniature scale model of one of the units.

The project, which is being marketed by Otis & Ahearn, looks very interesting.  It has some very creative features including all 50 units being accessed directly by elevator (very NYC) and no units being less than 2 bedrooms (so far….we will see if this holds up) and au pair suites available for purchase as well.

They are marketing these towards the empty nester.  Someone coming from a large house in the suburbs is usually in for a big surprise with most units in the city being much smaller than what they are used to and they also usually have to get used to paying condo fees equal or greater than $1/sq. ft.  However, with the Bryants units being at least 2 bedrooms and at least 1700 sq. ft this solves the space issue, and with condo fees being only .50/sq. ft. (estimated).

Prices are estimated to start at around $1 million and go up to around $3 million with an expected completion date around the sometime late 2007 (my guess would be more like the Spring of 2008).

Great project though….contact me to find out more!
