Real Estate Showcase - New Developments

Along 71st Road at Queens Boulevard, the Cord Meyer Development Company is building what will be the first new-construction condos in Forest Hills in more than a decade. The Windsor at Forest Hills, with a 24/7 concierge and doorman, is a 21-story tower featuring 95 one-, two- and three-bedroom homes ranging from 722 to 1,752 s.f.—all with nine-foot ceilings. With just a handful of units per floor, nearly every one of these five-star homes will have spectacular views from the floor-to-ceiling windows. Gourmet kitchens will include custom Bavarian beech wood cabinets, granite countertops and stainless steel KitchenAid appliances. Baths will have Ozer Gold marble floors, countertops and soaking tubs. Building amenities include a lounge with an adjacent catering kitchen, a 6,000-s.f. terrace, a 1,650-s.f. rooftop observatory, and a state-of-the-art fitness center. Priced from $365,000 to $1.15 million, occupancy is set for mid-September 2005.
Are we really surprised the dazzling new Trump Tower at City Center in White Plains is getting the same high ratings The Apprentice garners on TV? For the first time ever, high-rise luxury condos are being built in Westchester and they’re selling like hotcakes (nearly 50 percent of the units sold in the first three weeks of sales to snowbirds, empty-nesters and Manhattanites). The 35-story, 212-unit luxury tower is a key component in Louis R. Cappelli’s $325-million City Center. The one-, two- and three-bedroom, multi-bath homes range in size from 1,040 to 2,600 s.f. Upper-level units will offer views of the Manhattan skyline, Long Island Sound, Westchester County and the Hudson Valley. The recreation complex includes a fitness center, indoor pool, children’s playroom and “Trump Club” (lounge, billiard and card rooms, entertainment center with plasma-screen TVs), an outdoor pool, tennis, paddleball courts, a sundeck—and, of course, a full business center. As with any Trump building it’s all in the details: custom cherry wood cabineted kitchens with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and marble-floored baths. Priced from $600,000 to $1.6 million, occupancy is set for April 2005.
