The Visionaire Condo, by Albanese Development, is growing and now glowing with it's first sheets of glass and some terra cotta too! It seems the terra cotta has something to do with "optimizing thermal performance" of the ultra-green building. Albanese has achieved platinum status for his LEED certified building, which means clean, green living and a 35% reduction in your energy bill to boot. The Pelli designed building is sleek and modern. The curved Western side juts out on the North and South side in a manner that quite brilliantly affords those on the corners views of the East Side Hudson River and Statue of Liberty Views. The building includes a wide array of amenities including 50' pool, green roof with built in grills, and expansive fitness and playroom space. Average prices are around $1300psf, but if you are looking for a bargain, East facing units go as low as under $1000psf and have a much better view than the majority of higher priced comparables on Wall Street. The apartments themselves are handsomely outfitted with Wolf and Sub-Zero kitchen, wide oak floors, and a top of the line master bath which is also included with the 1 bedroom units. The pricing is very competitive with it's neighbor to the North, The RiverHouse Condo. So, if you haven't been to BPC lately, this vision is well worth a look.
