For monitoring condo listings in NYC is solid and supports free email alerts

There is a large supply of luxury condo conversions/new construction scheduled for 2020 occupancy in the financial district-
130 william
25 park row
33 beekman
45 park place
125 greenwich
161 maiden lane (one seaport)
77 greenwich
1 wall st

1 Wall St is near 77 Greenwich and has a Whole Foods coming as the commercial tenant, that and the Alamo Drafthouse at Chase Plaza should help make the area feel more residential

After monitoring this since pre the bankruptcy I bought my first shares in December as an asset play and looking for a January effect.  Future capital allocation is my top concern.

There appears to be a glut of new Condos
historically, developers in nyc can't help themselves from building until there is a bust

then again, there is so much demand and rates are so low, it's hard to think that more ppl aren't going to buy rather than rent where there is a better probability for cap appreciation ... though, to be fair, NYC RE is not the same kind of an investment as something with a cap rate more than 5...

Any updates on the amount of condo units that are pre-sold?  I want to like this idea, but have stayed away and been happy of that decision so far.  One of the concerns that I have is that TPHS doesn't really offer any shareholder value (at the moment to people).  NAV discount investment thesis are a dime a dozen in the public markets today.  If you can buy Vornado at 1/3 of NAV that pays 7% dividend, why bother with TPHS?  You can buy LAACO and get a 5.5% yield that is very safe.  You can buy GRIF and they are converting into a REIT and will likely start a small and growing dividend yield.  All the other names offers some flavor of real shareholder reward.

Agreed, I want to like this, but whatever its proposition is there are better propositions in other stuff right now.

On a somewhat tangential note, there's been some articles about tons of "distressed real estate" funds being setup all over. Lot of money just waiting.
