Chiu-Ti Jansen, Publisher of YUE Magazine, hosted a cocktail reception on Tuesday, February 25th at The Sterling Mason sales gallery, featuring a special presentation about the highly-anticipated new, boutique condominium and the luxury real estate market in Tribeca.
”Second generation education and real estate investments continue to drive the very high end of Chinese overseas travels. Tribeca, blessed with outstanding school systems and a European feel, is getting more attention as the affluent Chinese seek to provide a welcoming home to their aspiring children. YUE is proud to partner with The Sterling Mason to introduce a new development, which combines a loft conversion and new construction, to its sophisticated readers,” remarked Chiu-Ti Jansen.
The evening brought together YUE readers to discover New York City’s wealthiest neighborhood by per capita income. Guests sipped on cocktails and enjoyed appetizers while getting an exclusive preview of The Sterling Mason.
Located at 71 Laight Street in Northwest Tribeca, The Sterling Mason is a seven-story, full-service boutique condominium designed by acclaimed architect Morris Adjmi with beautiful interiors by GACHOT (which is also known for designing the private residence of Marc Jacobs as well as several hotels with hotelier André Balazs). The Sterling Mason offers 33 spacious residences paired with robust amenities and impeccable service. Residences range from two- to six-bedrooms and from around 2,000 to more than 5,600 square feet, including the penthouses which feature vast layouts, stunning views and sweeping private terraces. Among the amenities are an interior courtyard garden designed by celebrated landscape designer Deborah Nevins, a children’s playroom designed by the early childhood learning experts at the 92nd Street Y, and private parking, which is available for purchase.
“It was a pleasure hosting Chiu-Ti and her colleagues for this unique event,” said Charles Bendit, Co-CEO of Taconic Investment Partners, developer of The Sterling Mason. “The Sterling Mason represents the pinnacle of luxury living in Tribeca and the residential market downtown. We have units going into contract at some of the highest prices per square foot in the area, and are experiencing significant interest from international buyers, specifically from China, who are seeking the value found in Manhattan’s hottest neighborhood.”
Available residences at The Sterling Mason are priced from approximately $3.9 million to $23 million for the newly-listed Penthouse B. Penthouse A is in contract for $21 million, which equates to $4,656 per square foot, the highest in the building so far. Douglas Elliman Development Marketing is the exclusive sales and marketing agent for the property.
