Investing decision

The investing decision was based on analyzing the market demand for high end condo rentals in Gramercy.  Demand was strong and there was not much high end supply in the area.

 

200 E 21 St in Gramercy.  Located on tree-lined street on 21St and Third Avenue, this is a green building targeting LEED Gold certification.  Designed by BKSK Architects and developed by Alfa Development.

A high end marble bathroom is another key mark of a luxury condo and this translates into higher rent per square foot.  Bathroom comes with Dornbracht fixtures and bathtub by Kohler.

We will be listing the apartment for rent next week.
