Bohemia Realty Group, the premier residential and commercial, sales and leasing brokerage in Upper Manhattan and the Bronx, has secured a healthy number of listings in Hudson Heights, Fort Greene and Inwood, as well as the exclusive agency for marketing The Ammann, a ground-up condominium project at 40 Pinehurst Avenue, at the corner of West 179th Street.
The Ammann, in particular, represents a paradigm for the booming residential development happening in the highest reaches of Upper Manhattan, extending from Washington Heights to Inwood. It has been compared to the flurry of development activity in Harlem a decade ago.
“Upper Manhattan is exploding with growth in every category, from residential development to retail and dining,” explains Beth Gittleman, Head of Sales and Development for BRGDM, the development marketing division of Bohemia Realty Group. “Hudson Heights is a stand out neighborhood uptown for buyers looking to put down roots in a great community. This is an incredibly exciting time to be involved in these neighborhoods and The Ammann is the kind of project that is already setting a new standard.”
The eight-story, boutique condominium development features 24 one- and two-bedroom residences, including four two-bedroom penthouses, along with two ground-level commercial spaces. Named for Othmar Ammann, the Swiss-American structural engineer responsible for designing the George Washington Bridge, The Ammann is being developed by Orient Development whose work in Upper Manhattan was most recently seen at Edgecombe Parc at 456 West 167th Street. The architect on the project is Nickolas D. Kazalas RA of ND Kazalas Architecture P.C.
Among the many exceptional apartment amenities will be triple-pane windows with curtain wall systems, individually monitored air and heating and in-unit washer/dryers. An equally impressive array of building-wide amenities will include an expansive rooftop deck, lobby level Zen garden, fully-equipped fitness room, bike storage room, package room, smart phone door access and control app system, and video intercom with security monitoring system. In addition, 20-plus storage spaces are planned for individual purchase.
“The Ammann is perfect for Hudson Heights, an area that is home to a highly diverse population,” points out Bohemia’s Daoud Heidami, a member of the project team.
