First Glimpse at One Vanderbilt’s Terra-Cotta and Glass Facade, Midtown East





Two weeks ago, YIMBY reported on the rise of the first of two cranes that will be used to build One Vanderbilt, on the corner of 42nd Street and Vanderbilt Avenue, in Midtown East. Now, the second crane has been installed, and the first photos of the supertall’s facade have also been revealed. While glass won’t appear on the actual tower for another year or so, the initial images are very promising for what will become the tallest skyscraper in the neighborhood.

Roosevelt Island’s most expensive condo ever sells for $1.87M





The sale is now the neighborhood’s most expensive of all time

Roosevelt Island’s most expensive listing— a $2 million condo spanning 1,433 square feet— just set a record for the priciest apartment ever sold within the neighborhood.

The three-bedroom, three-bathroom home was listed back in May and whereas in the rest of Manhattan no one bats an eye at a $2 million listing, this condo quickly drew attention since it was asking a sum unheard of for the island. While the home didn’t fetch its full asking price, the $1.87 million that it closed for was enough to make it the most expensive condo sale ever to hit Roosevelt Island, reports The Real Deal.

The apartment is a decent space and features floor-to-ceiling windows with stellar views of the East River, a plethora of closet space, marble-clad bathrooms, and views of the Manhattan skyline.

The sale dethroned another unit within the same building, located at 415 Main Street, which once held the title of priciest apartment on Roosevelt Island to sell when it fetched $1.75 million in May 2016.
