Closings will be commencing next quarter at the project known as 35XV, a 25-story modern tower of condos with a graceful glass facade. Occupying a coveted midblock location on quiet West 15th Street where the Village meets Chelsea, there are only 26 apartments at this boutique new development, many filled with generous sunlight and breezy layouts. My client will be closing here soon on a beautiful three-bedroom apartment, where units are trading around $2,600 per square foot—a relative bargain when compared to the surrounding downtown area, with projects like The Greenwich Lane and many other new developments selling at much higher prices. With even the lowest residences starting at 100 feet off the ground, the unobstructed panoramic vistas of the Manhattan skyline are truly something to write home about, featuring such iconic New York City landmarks as the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building and dotted with my favorite urban symbol – the water tower. On-site amenities here include a gym, entertainment lounge, children's playroom and a walk-in wine cellar for each residence. Additionally, at a time when many Catholic Schools are being cut back or closed, this project has allowed Xavier High School to expand and renovate its space with a new six-story wing, the result of a collaboration with developer Alchemy Properties, who bought the air rights on the condition of building new space for Xavier. 35XV is almost sold out, but please reach out if you are interested in learning more about the few remaining available apartments. Next on the to-see agenda: Alchemy Properties’ highly anticipated Woolworth Tower condos. Oh, and good news for those of you lovers of urban parks and gardens—one of the next new developments to debut in Greenwich Village (at the former St. Vincent’s Hospital site) will include yet another public park

Both bedrooms are generously proportioned and the bathrooms feature floor-to-ceiling marble. All just minutes from Central Park on one of the Upper East Side’s very best blocks.
