A few months back, I highlighted Georgica Condo up on 85th Street and Second Avenue, the condo with a kitchen that, in my book, is up for my "Kitchen Of The Year" prize. Well, a few months on, it's fair to say that things are proceeding swimmingly for the condo with a beach name. I spoke with Rob Kaliner, the president of Ascend Group this morning, and the developer is "very happy" with the way that things are going so far. The building is already better than 30% sold, and he expects that after the traditionally slow summer season, the fall "will be a whole new ballgame". While summer traffic is never fantastic, Mr. Kaliner is happy with the quality of buyer who is coming to Georgica Condo (when they are not on Georgica Beach).
I passed by the building this morning and it is certainly moving along. Twelve stories and counting. Oh, and the double cantilever- hot!
