Thread: Proposed Nobu Hotel and Residences - 45 Broad St (62 Storeys) - by Moed de Armas

    HEY THERE. INTERESTING QUESTIONS, BUT NOT TO WORRY. SEE BELOW.

    They say that the 10% deposit is not returned if the buyer cannot secure financing. Is this normal? [VERY NORMAL. NO ONE IN NYC SELLS AN APARTMENT SUBJECT TO A BUYER RECEIVING FINANCING. THE DEVELOPER PROBABLY HAS A RELATIONSHIP WITH A MORTGAGE BANK WHO WILL GUARANTEE GOOD FINANCING OPTIONS]

    1) No mention whatsoever about all the fancy pants appliances, floors, fixtures the salesman promised. [ALL IS CONTAINED IN THE OFFERING PLAN. THE PURCHASE CONTRACT REFERENCES THE PLAN WHICH LISTS THE APPLIANCES/FIXTURES, ETC.]


    2) If there's an existing tenant, buyer cannot evict him. [VERY STANDARD. FIND OUT IF YOU APARTMENT IS OCCUPIED - IF IT IS NOT, THIS IS NOT AN ISSUE FOR YOU]

    Al Frick: Templeton below you has answered all your questions, but honestly, if you are spending $900,000 on an apartment, you should spend $1,500 on an attorney to read your contract. It is one thing to buy without a broker -- though I wouldn't advise it -- but I don't understand making a major financial decision without legal advice.

    Templeton: at the bottom right of every post is a little blue button that says "Quote" -- if you want to answer someone's questions, just hit the quote button. What will pop up is a reply window for you, and the text you are responding to will appear between the tags "quote" and "/quote."

    You can edit their text as long as you don't delete those beginning and ending tags.

    Thanks a million for your response. I was stressing out because Swig's plan is about a mountain of paperwork. I did hire a lawyer, but I think he's really good for nothing and just wants to collect his fee.

    Almost every line in the Plan and the Agreement are skewed towards their end.

    By the way, you sound as if you've looked a little at the plan yourself. Are we perhaps going to be neighbors possibly? I'll owe you a drink if that is the case.

    Ali, I did hire a lawyer. But as I mentioned to Templeton, I think he's good for nothing and wants to do the minimal work and collect his fee. I'm paying him $1300 but doing most of the work for him it seems.

    This is my first home purchase so forgive a noob: How do people actually agree to these outrageous demands and sign over their lives? If I lose my job, no bank in the world will lend to me and I'll lose my 10% deposit.

    45 Broad St. is completely cleared (too bad because it was a nice classy building):





    Here's the next door neighbor to its right (41 Broad St.):





    ...and next to that is the landmarked 25 Broad St.:





    ...where its rear wing has been approved for demolition. You can see the rear wing here with the underconstruction 15 William St. peaking through the top:

    As per the DOB's website, this building will e slightly taller than 700 feet, and SLCE Architects are the architects of record.

    FYI, it looks to me like interior demolition of the rear wing of 25 broad is well under way. perhaps we'll see something rising at 45 broad by next year.

    45 Broad Street
    Deep in the heart of the Financial District, a new 56-story hotel and residential tower is on the rise. The building is located at 45 Broad Street, between Beaver Street and Exchange Place in the New York Stock Exchange security zone. The new tower will be home to a 160-room hotel with condominium units on its upper floors. Swig Equities is managing the project, with Tishman Construction building the tower. It is expected to open in summer 2010. Click here for a tour of the rebuilding projects taking place in Lower Manhattan.
    Locate this project on the Interactive Streetwork Map.

    eek! please don't tell me that the above photo is the rear wing of 25 Bond - that would be a total travesty!!!

    The building seen in that photo is safe. The rear wing of the building that's coming down was not visible from any street until 45 Broad was razed. It's not a loss.

    Hopefully, something nice will be built here, rather than a mediocre piece of junk.

    10 bucks to anyone that can find a picture of 45 broad pre-demolition.

    I don't understand luxury development in this spot. If I was going to pay top dollar I certainly would not pay to live in a dark cavern, there is no light in this spot. Plus it's not yet a truly 24/7 community yet.
