“Completion time for conversions is faster than new construction, so buyers benefit from quicker move-in times,” says Asher Zamir, principal of Zamir Equities. “Plus, conversions often translate to soaring ceilings, attractive architectural features such as sky-high windows, and enormous amounts of light. That’s why we chose 40 Broad Street for our latest luxury development: the Setai, New York.”
