10-17 Jackson: Fresh Renderings




My friends over at Studio V were nice enough to share some more renderings for the much anticipated (by me at least) 10-17 Jackson. They would like me to note a couple of changes- the kitchens will actually have granite counters and the vanities in the bath will be smaller with storage underneath.
The lobby, though small will be double height with green/gold quartzite floors, walnut walls at the elevators and distinctive perforated aluminum sheeting on the walls of the rest of the lobby. The sheeting as pictured will also cover the majority of the exterior of the building, so the current appearance of the building should be far different in just a few weeks. Other finishes of note are solid walnut floors that are nailed down (not glued), and the cove lighting above the kitchen which the generous ceiling heights (9'4"- 11'4") afford. The cove lighting allows a more natural and evenly diffused light reflected by the white laminate cabinets. Heck, beats the heck out of a big fluorescent light any day.
According to Studio V, the building is just weeks from completion (expected by year end). Then, comes the big decision by the owner- to move forward with condos, rent the apartments or come up with another scheme. I would encourage the owner to look at the quiet, yet runaway success of it's triangular sister 10-63 Jackson down the street. If priced right, 10-17 should have similar success, even in a tougher environment.
Other small factoids: 33 units- 6 2 bedrooms, 27 1 bedrooms. You begin to clear all the neighboring buildings starting at the 4th floor.Share B

  2. I think we know this will go rental. The only reason 1063 did well is b/c those units went on the market years ago and just now closed. People were locked in with no way out. No so with this building.

    Yet another rental building, what are these developers thinking?

  3. I'm sure the brokers will fail to mention that the idling LIRR trains right across the street creates a deafening, unrelenting, wall-shaking noise, ALL DAY LONG (Monday-Friday)! And toxic fumes. Don't be fooled - just visit the location on a weekday - there is a reason they will only want to show the units on the weekdend.I'm sure the LIE traffic and exhaust right below will also be nice.

  5. actually, 9 of 10-63's units went to contract and then closed after May of this year.

    The original closings started February of this year and were all closed by April.

    Pricing was adjusted accordingly (but no huge slashes) and units moved ... Andrew has a point ... price to the market and units will move.

  7. No word on pricing yet, or if they will follow through on condo (despite my encouragement).

  12. Spoke to owner's rep on Friday. The jury is still out. They have not decided if they should go rental or condo. They say they will have a decision early in the new year.

  16. Really good.

    I liked the blog very much.
    adopting some green principles will be good.
    Now think of some ways to preserve the arable land and at the same time improve our infrastructural facilities.

  18. The closing paragraph tells all of it in my opinion. I have to say that I agree with it, and probably the most fantastic factor about it's that you left it open ended…this shows that you are ready to draw in new and different opinions and that you're ultimately very interested to see folks getting involved within the subject. So, any various opinions?
