March has been a busy month for NoMad real estate news. We’ve put together a round-up of the residential and commercial deals in the neighborhood, including beautiful new apartments offerings and impressive office space closings.


Residential Developments

Pre-war brownstone in NoMad, New York's hottest neighborhood

The apartments at 24 Madison Park (41 west 24th Street) will soon be ready to rent. Developer GRJ, headed by brothers Graham Jones and Gregory Jones, designed the apartments to exemplify “affordable luxury.” 10 three-bedroom units will be available, all of which feature exposed brick walls, stainless steel appliances and heated bathroom floors.


Developer JD Carlisle has purchased 15 East 30th Street for $102 million, with the goal of building the neighborhood’s tallest residential tower. Plans for the building reveal that it will be 53 stories and stand 825 feet tall.


A historic brownstone at 127 East 26th Street is being listed for $5.25 million. The three-story, two-family home retains features from its construction at the beginning of the 20th Century, including high tin ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, and exposed brick walls. The townhouse is being listed by Town Real Estate, which describes NoMad as “New York’s hottest neighborhood.”
