Updated Rental Report: The Ups and Downs

The newest numbers are in, and it’s no surprise to see that overall Manhattan and Brooklyn rental prices are still up from 2012, but some of the month-to-month numbers might surprise you.

Paying Rent with a Credit Card? That’s Priceless

Paying rent with a credit card: that's priceless!

For most of us in New York City, the start of every month sees us either writing a check or withdrawing cash from the nearest ATM to pay our apartment rent. While this is a routine we have all got accustomed to, wouldn’t it be great if we could pay our rent using our credit cards instead? Think of the benefits involved—besides the relative ease and comfort in paying with plastic, we would also be able to rake up a whole lot of credit card reward points!

The Continental in Midtown West Fills Up

The Continental—a 5The Continental3-story building on 32nd Street and Sixth Avenue—announced today that it is all sold out. That’s right, the building that lingered in construction for two years and underwent a name change filled up in less than a year. Call it the success story of the week, and good news for the high-priced, low inventoried rental market.

Gotham West, Largest Affordable Housing Project, Breaks Ground Near Hudson Yards

Gotham WestNothing in recent Manhattan history has spurred development like Hudson Yards in Midtown West is now. Since 2005, the one-time site of Mayor Bloomberg’s failed Olympics bid has seen the construction of 15 Manhattan luxury condo buildings and 12 hotels. News about development projects in the area are released every day it seems, and every real estate insider projects that development will skyrocket in the Far West Side over the next several years. Even building projects not directly inside the Hudson Yards boundaries have the area to thank for their existence. Gotham West, a massive construction project that will take up an entire block, is one such building. From 44th to 45th Street and Tenth to Eleventh Avenue, Gotham West is a four-tower rental and condo hybrid that plans to offer 1,263 housing units, 556 of which will be apartments for rent.

Asking the Experts: What the 2012 Manhattan Rental Market Will Look Like

In honor of the new year the Real Deal solicited a group of real estate experts and industry insiders to get their opinions on where the Manhattan rental real estate market is headed in 2012. The experts agreed almost unanimously that conditions will be similar to how they were in 2011. Apartments for rent, they said, will still be in the grip of a strong market, and ultraluxury rental apartments will do particularly well. There was general consensus that average rent will either stay the same, or increase slightly over the year. Many experts said that high and stable rents will force condo and co-op prices upward, and most agreed that the rental market would overall be steadier than the purchase market.

More Rentals Rising West of Midtown West

Far West Side ManhattanThe words Manhattan and real estate development have long been synonymous, so it should come as no surprise when The Real Deal recently announced that the Gotham Organization would be taking on one of the largest new construction projects in Manhattan yet. The Gotham Organization project is expected to cost over $520 million and consists of four separate buildings spanning an entire Manhattan city block at 550 West 45th Street between 10th and 11th Avenue. Out of the 1,238 expected units for rent, close to 600 of them will be constructed with low-, moderate- and middle-income New Yorkers in mind.

New Media, Not Investors, Investing in Rentals. What?

NYC Luxury Condos - Media Investing in Rentals

New York City, ever known for taking the real estate and rental advice from the rest of America and throwing it out the window, is now going through a more unexpected demographic change. When we think of who actually rents luxury rentals, the first group that comes to mind is usually investment bankers, mainly those in their 20s and 30s who fill the tangled streets of Lower Manhattan early in the morning and seemingly beat rush hour both to and from work. That was true until recently, and while financiers still comprise the largest portion of renters, they no longer form the majority that they used to be. Instead, an eclectic tech-savvy generation has usurped traditional business, and in turn, the rental market.
