BEIJING, May 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Oosten project in Brooklyn, developed by XIN Development Group International, Inc., the U.S. development arm of Xinyuan Real Estate Co., Ltd. ("Xinyuan" or "the Company") (NYSE: XIN), an NYSE-listed real estate developer and property manager primarily in China and recently in other countries, was named one of the "Top 10 Best-Selling NYC Buildings in Q1 2017" by PropertyShark.
The Oosten, in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn, was ranked 5th among the top 10 by PropertyShark, with 37 units sold in the first quarter of 2017 (as disclosed by PropertyShark). The strong showing reinforces Oosten's notable performance in 2016, when it closed sales of another 100 units, PropertyShark said. PropertyShark is a leading property research tool for real estate professionals, investors and homebuyers in New York, and other major US markets. The ranking of top 10 best-selling NYC buildings was based on all sales closed between January 1st and March 31st 2017.
Xinyuan acquired the land for the Oosten at the end of 2012, and has since transformed an entire city block of raw land parcel into a state-of-the-art, modern land mark.
"We are pleased with the performance of the Oosten project, which is our first residential real estate development in New York City," said CFO Helen Zhang. "With the success of the Oosten, we are expanding our investment in the residential market in New York City with the Hudson Garden project in Midtown Manhattan and the landmark RKO KEITH'S Theater project in Queens."
The Oosten, located at Kent Avenue and South 8th Street in Williamsburg, has good views of downtown Manhattan and is a short distance from the Wall Street financial district. Williamsburg is one of the most culturally exciting neighborhoods in all of New York. The waterfront district, where Oosten is situated, is just one subway stop from Manhattan, seconds from the East River Ferry and right at the base of the Williamsburg Bridge. Abundant bike lanes nearby allow bikers to travel into Lower Manhattan and neighboring areas.
The building has 216 units with seven different unit typologies (townhomes, duplex homes, 1-, 2-, & 3-bedrooms, lofts, and duplex penthouses). Approximately 80% of the Oosten's total units had been pre-sold as of Dec. 31, 2016.
