Tirbeca loft assignment
Douglas Elliman Real Estate has been selected to exclusively handle sales and marketing of 77 Warren Street, a loft conversion with four floor-through two-bedroom, 2-bath apartments in TriBeCa.
Developed by the Colonnade Group, with architecture and interiors by Andre Kikoski, 77 Warren is being marketed by Sabrina Saltiel, Kirsten Jordan and Carlo Romero.

The Maximilian, a newly constructed luxury rental in Long Island City, is now 100 percent leased.
The 188-unit building officially opened for leasing in September 2013, and welcomed its first residents in November.
On June 27, the building’s last two remaining apartments were leased, a one-bedroom unit with a wrap-around terrace and a studio, also with a large terrace.
“From the start, we were very pleased with the interest The Maximilian generated, not only among renters from Queens, but also many from Brooklyn and Manhattan,” said Chiho Machado, director of on-site leasing for Rose Associates, the exclusive leasing and managing agent of The Maximilian.
“The pace of leasing was exemplary and we credit this to the building’s boutique qualities, its many amenities, and the fact that Long Island City has matured into a true destination neighborhood.”
