Hello Julia
Are you looking to buy or to rent?
I have both and what are you looking in terms of budget? And location?
When do you need it by? Since buying will take a bit longer than leasing?
And most of all how familiar with NYC are you? Trying to manage your expectation..
I wil be able to answer any of your questions, feel free o contact me
Best Regards

Hello Irene
We will need more info on the apt. If you can email the link, that would be great. A good idea is to have your attorney do due diligence on the building finances, History of maintenance, Assessments etc.

Hello Twista,

I hope that I can shine some light on your question.

Over the next 18 months, St. Vincent's Hospital is planning on having a major overhaul/renovation done on its existing Labor Unit and will rename it -the Eli and Abby Manning Birthing Center.

Since there won’t be any new construction of a new facility, rather just interior reworking of an existing one, I don't believe that it will cause any major inconvenience to neighboring buildings.

This renovation should not affect any surrounding buildings value negatively. If anything, I would say it could even increase the value after all is said and done because St. Vincent's is doing something great for its hospital and community.

Century Tower is a great Condo Building, located in a much desired area, steps from meatpacking district. It has a subway stop at its entrance and it's surrounded by great restaurants and supermarkets.

You would of course need to look at the building financials, but there isn't anything I found on the building that raised any red flags.

If you have any other questions/concerns you can always shoot me an email or give me a call Twista.

Best of Luck,
