Here and now…

Extell Development Corp. just unveiled the new condo sales website for “One Manhattan Square,” the bullshit upper crust name given to its South Street monstrosity. What’s interesting about the new splash page – published today – is the fact that it confirms the overall height. Yes, the tower will rise 80 stories, after all, more than three times the height of the Manhattan Bridge.

No information on specific units is provided, only an application form to learn more about prospective buyers. As previously reported, though, Extell is actually bent on attracting foreign investors first for the 800+ condo units stocked in its belly. Exhibitions are planned next month in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Beijing, Singapore, and Kuala Lumpur. Don’t worry, though; these 1-3 bedroom units are “cheap” – in the $1 million to $3 million range.

Here is the broker-babble to ruin your lunch.

On the edge of the East River, with epic views of one of the world’s greatest cities, is One Manhattan Square.

80 stories of meticulously designed, light filled homes with walls of glass that frame postcard perfect views; clad in a shimmering façade that reflects the bridge and city it overlooks.

A modern garden square providing an unprecedented 100,000 square feet of outdoor and indoor amenities for social interaction and private relaxation. One Manhattan Square is a vertical village; the only one of its kind in New York City.

One Manhattan Square (aka 250 South Street) will carry 1.1 million square-feet with 815 units and various over-the-top amenities. The complex earmarked approximately 50,000 square feet for indoor perks like “art studios” for residents, bike storage, pools, gym, “screening room,” game room, and “library lounge.”
