As a New York City real estate broker, I am an avid reader of The Real Deal, a real estate-focused website that does a monthly column called “The Closing” in which a market leader is interviewed. In line with the recent opening of the 160 Leroy Street sales office this month, I am featuring The Closing’s 2012 Ian Schrager interview. Schrager is a NYC real estate developer and hotelier, whom you likely also know as the co-founder of Studio 54. His most recent NYC project, 160 Leroy Street, has sold nearly half of the 49 units within two weeks of launching. The Herzog & de Meuron-designed building will have 15 stories and each of the condos will have a unique layout. Prices begin at $2.6M for an 1,100 SF one bedroom. There will be a 6,000 SF five bedroom for $25M as well as a 12,000 SF penthouse with 7,500 SF of outdoor space and a private pool. The price of this home has not yet been disclosed but it is likely to move quickly.
