I paid $ 1.33 M and signed the contract already. As of Friday, they were at the 5th amendment and my unit is listing now for $ 1.43 M. This does not mean anything but it is a plus.

    The area is going to pickup incredibly. Please read the NYT Sunday Real Estate section. The Orion was favorably mentioned.

    I have all floor plans, etc and can give info to prospective buyers.
    My appointment is on the 9th - i hope the prices don't rise too much before then! Hoping to get a high floor 2br....

    Would love to get any additional info you are willing to provide so that I can go into my meeting more informed. My personal email address is: jsgardinier1275@yahoo.com - any info is appreciated!

    Any additional info

    Default white brick building directly west of the Orion

    Holly House is not a "welfare hotel". It is subsidized low-income housing. It is a residence, just like the Orion will be. Low income individuals get up, go to work and come home. You'll find that that building is well maintained.

    The white brick building directly west of the Orion is a drug addict, prostitute hotel and has drug addicts and drunks on its steps in the entry. That corner attracts a run down lot of people, due to the day treatment center on Ninth Ave under the Bus Terminal viaduct. They are pretty harmless, but could get uptight preppies all knotted up.
    Is that building on top of Dunkin Donuts you are refereing to?

    [QUOTE=angnyc]Do you think too much sun on the summer time?

    In their website, they are promoting the north-east facing the time-square.

    If you don't like the sun, then you should get a northern view. on the lower floors you will be blocked by other buildings on 42nd, also the sun shines from the south of NYC.

    I Have the UNIT A which is the South & West view (should be a lot of sun )

    Hi guys:

    My wife was there again today with a friend of hers looking to get a unit. They are still on the 5th amendment. However, some 2 bedrooms have gone up in value dramatically. Unit 44D facing North and East is 1207 sq ft and is listed at
    $ 1.39 M , and has appreciated over $ 280,000.- since the initial offering. On the initial offering, South and East exposures were more expensive but North and East exposures on higher floors ( 30 and above ) have appreciated quite a bit.

    South will get morning sun, North in the afternoon.

    One bedroom 615 sq ft 11 floor west exposure $ 585 K, one bedroom 667 sq ft, 14 th floor, North Exposure $ 577 K as of today noon. Approx 200 contracts have been signed.

    detigiwa or anyone else that might know pricing plans for 2br's. do you have information for other 2br's in Orion, price, sq ft, and floor? how many apartment choices did you have when you went to the appt? I have the appt next wk and wanted to find out any relevant info in advance so i can compare data when i'm there. Will let you know how appt goes. Thanks a bunch. Any relevant email, please email to stn104@yahoo.com

    Sorry but I will try to answer all questions at the same time.

    The F line faces North and East. They have 1 bedroom, 690 sq ft. They are around $ 610 K on the lower floors.

    2 bedrooms start at 957 sq feet around $ 920 K and go all the way to $ 1.5 M presently.

    When one goes to the meeting, they will tell you that they have a list and try not to show it to you. Ask politely to see the list and they will show it to you. They usually release approx 15 units at a time and once they are gone, they release more. Your choices are limited. Say, you may have 2 1 bedroom units, 2 studios and 3 2 bedroom units available and not exactly the exposures you are looking for. My suggestion is put your $ 100 down and take the one you really like. You have about 1 week afterwards to decide whether you want it or not.
    If you sit and ask too many questions, by the time you say OK, let' s go for it, someone else may have taken it. It happened to a friend of mine yesterday !!

    Building is in 6th price amendment as of Saturday April 09. It is my understanding that contract went out for an additional 35 units today.

    I find the "Zebra" building to be quite ugly.

    If you're going to use ugly colors, spare the public by only using one...not two.

    Great shot by the way. I love looking down across Manhattan streets.

    It's quite awe inspiring just to look at how massive and diverse the cityscape is.

    Do you mind sharing the #bedroom, square footage, direction and price ranges for each line? Thanks very much!

    Hi Liching:

    I just replied to your message a few minutes ago. Prices change constantly and when you go to the meeting, be prepared to jump onto the unit that is available, that you like out of the choices they present to you. Not all plans will be available when you go. I have them in a 300 page book format so it is very hard to share info online.

    Just got back from Orion appt. I was very impressed with the potential of the building. I bought 53C, 2BR's, 1070 sq ft, with northern exposure for $1.2mil. The area of Orion is congested, but seems to be very popular/happening. It can only get better. I think appreciation value will be tremendous, especially in 1-2 yrs when the building is completed. Also, the building is one of its kind in Manhattan with 3 floors of amenities(floors 29-31). Floors above 32, have their own washer/dryer hook up, and separate elevator bank. Kitchens, bathrooms, and finishes are really great. They had quite a few other 2Br's, 1Br's and studios available. Also common charges weren't too expensive considering residents get free breakfast each morning

    Congratulations on your purchase! I think you made a great choice. I agree, the building's ammenities seem to be fabulous with what looks to be a great gym with a view to die for as well as a sundeck right outside, a rec area with a pool table and as you mentioned the free breakfast. Looked more like a hotel in ammenities than an apartment house .

    I'm sure your purchase will appreciate greatly as the area further develops into a great fast paced residential area with great cultural assets nearby. Real estate in Manhattan in almost any section right now is a great investment.
