Tasteful friends: welcome to a tacky hi-rise

Aside from the crap decor, WTF is going on with these property fraus?

'Amy' has the neck and jaw strain of a xenomorph seeking to break free from its larval casing, while 'Heren' (?) has enough vocal fry to frizzle an egg.

Does New York naturally create wound-up bizarre critters like these, or are they drawn there?

See all the gold? The owners are hoping to sell to Israelis or Qataris.

It's foreign money.

Normally I don't care about such things, but the name "billionaire's row" is just so freaking tacky and new money.

That is one ugly building

No one actually lives in these things and they’ve ruined the skyline. Pure greed. If they can’t be dismantled perhaps one day they’ll retrofit them to be homeless shelters.

Most skyscrapers are just vertical sprawl. Better but not that much better than the horizontal sprawl that dominates the sunbelt. Skyscrapers are actually very energy inneficient. The best buidlings are mid and low rise ones like the ones that dominate Rome, Paris, Barcelona, etc.

Isn’t this the building that has so many engineering issues that it’s practically uninhabitable?

What, $27M and no balcony?

these skinny tall buildings sway and have horrible sounds of the wind passing through. No balcony for obvious reasons .

I wouldn't want to live in the shadow of that either, for fear it would blow over during a storm.

$28 mil and the kitchen is still a corner of the living room? Food should be prepared in a separate space!

r12, I think that's 432 Park Avenue, the Tetris Building.

by Anonymousreply 17November 25, 2021 6:05 PM

I immediately saw that too, r17. The kitchen in the living room? Pots and pans? Then schlep the food across the LR to the DR on the other side? Are those sliders to the outdoor? Sliding glass doors yet no balcony. Maybe they only slide a few inches for fresh air.

Just a bit curious, how well are the Hudson Yards apartment development selling? Anyone know?

$27.75 million for only three bedrooms?

HY received billions in tax abatement by rezoning that area as Harlem. GRIFT.

by Anonymousreply 22November 25, 2021 6:35 PM

the skyline is ruined but the views from the inside out must be incomparable, no balcony necessary

by Anonymousreply 23November 25, 2021 6:49 PM

R23 having a balcony isn't just about the view. It's about having outdoor space and fresh air. Though at that height, it's prob too windy.

by Anonymousreply 24November 25, 2021 7:01 PM

Some years ago I lived in a $850 per month rent stabilized building in a nice neighborhood in Brooklyn with easy street parking and clean air. Sometimes I'd walk a few blocks to the 'F' train and get off at 50th Street station below Rockefeller (Or any other parts of Manhattan) in 35 minutes. Pitiful rich idiots.

by Anonymousreply 25November 25, 2021 7:09 PM

To me, it is really criminal to have these units occupied only a couple weeks a year. Yet we’re stuck with a ruined skyline and homeless people suffering on the streets.

by Anonymousreply 26November 25, 2021 7:12 PM

get rid of tax abatement for luxury construction and charge 30 percent transaction fees for foreigners, homelessness solved.

Windows can’t open; the hallways are dark and narrow and somehow the view is ugly is and dreary despite the location.

Horrific, what a waste of money. Looks like a hotel. NOT worth the $$$

by Anonymousreply 34November 25, 2021 9:03 PM

Why do these apartments look so cheap? Same for the top of 432 Park Avenue, discussed with gusto at DL. They do look like hotel suites, no character, no homeliness. Cold and boring. I know it’s staging furniture but with that money could they not afford an interior designer? David Geffen, if you read this: you can do better.

by Anonymousreply 35November 25, 2021 9:11 PM

I would be a nervous wreck in a building like that. Way too shoddily constructed and way too high. If I had that kind of $$$ I'd buy a lovely townhouse on the UES.

by Anonymousreply 36November 25, 2021 9:32 PM

it IS cheap construction.

by Anonymousreply 37November 25, 2021 9:33 PM

The open air concept - living room, kitchen and dining table all in one place, is for affordable middle class homes the HGTV viewers love. For 27 million, I would expect more. Where is my study? My gym? The children's wing? The sling room? The wine "cellar"? Why am I staring at dirty dishes or the housekeeper cleaning them?

Sounds like my BF after margaritas and Mexican food

by Anonymousreply 39November 27, 2021 3:53 AM

That’s a good point that who would want an open kitchen if the help were preparing meals and doing the cleaning . You would probably not want them in the open living space all the time. Reality is, I think, that since these units are rarely occupied there aren’t any staff doing the cooking. Meals are probably brought in from restaurants when anyone is staying there, and those ultra high end appliances are most likely never used.

by Anonymousreply 40November 27, 2021 3:24 PM

No cooking happens there. This is a 28M pied à terre. They are ordering in and the food is brought up by the concierge staff. Maybe they’ll host a catered get together.

I sometimes stay at a $10m pied a terre in west chelsea. Much more relaxed and “down to earth” than this monstrosity. But still it feels cold as fuck like you are crashing in a fancy hotel suite. These buildings are empty and truly soulless. You never see people walking in or out. The staff is bored shitless as nobody’s even there!

by Anonymousreply 41November 27, 2021 3:42 PM

Amazing how 4,000 square feet can feel so cramped. The lack of east/west exposures is awful. The layout is basic and and the rooms not graceful.

Look at this still from the video. Awful!
