To be fair, for every agent that posts an article on the latest condo purchase there are 5-10 articles from news agencies that say that the market is crashing and that the end of the world is near. Both sides play the media, you just have to be smart enough to figure things out for yourself instead of being spoon-fed crap.

Gotta LOVE "Real-Estate-Speak."

You see, if they announced BOTH the price and the buyer, one could check up and see if it true.

I'm surprised they didn't say $20 Million for a STUDIO while they were at it..

Yep, same Hovnanian who made overpriced junk...only now it seems they are WAY overpriced.

These developers will do ANYTHING to keep potential buyers from realizing the market has gone belly-up.

Probably evey realtor and developer all over the country is saying: "Yes the market is in a disastrous downturn EVERYWHERE BUT HERE...after all some unnamed movie star just paid a '$$JILLION$$'" bucks for an apartment at DROOPY TOWERS.
ANYTHING to get the name of their complex into print.

Elvis has bought the penthouse for the record amount of money. Its a 'boom' trade for the real estate people and everyone in that selling arena are having a 'hoot' coming up with words with no meanings to describe their progress!

HIGH-ROLLER HIGH-RISE
Monday, August 20, 2007
By JARRETT RENSHAW
JOURNAL STAFF WRITER

Condos get Hudson's top dollar

Who says the real estate market is cooling off?

It's still red-hot on the Hudson County waterfront, where a high-roller has purchased two condos on the top two floors of a Jersey City development at a whopping price tag of just more than $6 million. It's believed to be the highest price paid for a condo in the city's history.

Even if sold separately, either likely would have fetched more than $2.3 million, the previous record for a condo sold in Jersey City.

The unnamed buyer reportedly plans to merge them into a lavish two-story penthouse at the top of the 49-story building. Once completed, the two-story penthouse will measure 4,188 square feet. That translates to roughly $1,400 a square foot.

The purchase was made at K. Hovnanian's 77 Hudson St. development. The developer announced the sale last week but refused to divulge any details about the buyer - only about the development itself.

"The sophisticated design, hotel-quality amenities, luxury materials and finishes at 77 Hudson are exactly what buyers are seeking," said Tom Graham, of K. Hovnanian Homes, in a press release boasting about the sale.

Gershon Adjaye, a broker who deals with high-end real estate in Hudson County for Keller-Williams, said the price per square foot is on the high end in the county - but it's still a steal compared to prices in the New York City market.

"The truth is the square foot price is still much less expensive than penthouse condos in New York, which don't offer the same views," said Adjaye, who is not associated with the sale.

K. Hovnanian Homes opened 77 Hudson St. for VIP sales two weeks ago, with more than 300 appointments set for the initial sales release of condos.

Approximately 50 percent of the 100 residences released already have been sold, ranging in price from the upper $400,000s to $6.07 million. Thirty percent of sales have been broker generated.

"The waterfront is an extension of the New York market, and that is still very strong," said Jersey City Housing and Economic Development Corporation Acting Director Bob Antonicello, who defined the waterfront as everything east of Marin Boulevard. "The waterfront has now become separate part of the city, with very little linkage to the rest of the city."

The previous record of $2.3 million was the price of a penthouse condo sold at the Beacon, the site of the old Jersey City Medical Center.

interesting guess on Corzine... he already is in Hoboken (I'd heard at one point he'd committed to the W project there, but.....?), he'd be right across from his old stomping grounds at Goldman AND it's a "NJ Pride" thing that he'd committ here and not to NYC. Maybe a post-gubernatorial crash pad? He certainly has the cash for it.

I think you're right - my first guess was Corzine or someone like that. I know it is hard for some to understand, but not everyone buys a primary residence with appreciation in mind - investments are for appreciation your home is for you and your family to enjoy.

i'm not saying it's not an extraordinary amount of money, because it is. but try and find that kind of square footage, with that kind of view, anywhere in the city for less than $10,000,000, esp a duplex, and you'll see what it makes sense (in some kind of freaked out, twisted "sense" anyway).


by "city" i mean NYC.

Well look at the source. There is a reason reporters work for online news sources rather than say, the New York Times. Not that I'm really one to malign online news sites, but look at the writing: "...the residences will feature views of Manhattan?s skyline. The community will feature a glass curtain wall fa?ade, and will feature amenities..." Somebody needs a better editor.

When did the word "community" become a synonym for "building?"
