I know you've proven yourself immune to understanding this, but to me, that approach is laughable and misleading....But by patiently hanging in there and refusing to accept that I found the listings hilarious...What part of your description of the marketing of this building as misleading and getting responses from me disagreeing with your stated assessment of the building do you find so hard to understand?No kidding you find it "hilarious." You also have stated it's "misleading." Synonyms for "misleading" would include deceptive. So you think it's misleading, state it's misleading, and then get up in arms with someone for disagreeing with your assessment of how the building is being marketing. And then trying to claim they fail to understand you? Get out of here with that.

Not to speak for dssjh, but this is just more of how Nu-Place is marketing the building versus reality. Simply using the word "luxury" on a sign or website doesn't make it so. They may be using some "luxury" finishes in the renovations (though they claim that the kitchen countertops are Caesarstone), but the building itself is not anywhere near what most people would put in the luxury class.
So, what we've established here is that a rental conversion to a luxury building isn't often the norm. And because of that you (Simka) aren't familiar with the use of renderings, because you don't look at listings for luxury conversions very often. That means the criticism of use of renderings is moot.
Now, you guys can disagree whether or not the building will be up to "luxury" standards. Remember, this is about the future state of the building and amenities, not the current. Why don't you go set up an appointment to see a unit, and then go to the sales office to find out about replacing the elevators or what's being done in the hallways beyond what is represented on the site?
It seems pretty clear to me based on the marketing, as well as the high asking prices and maintenance, the buyers they are targeting are people who don't mind spending more for services and finishes. Marketing it as a luxury building is a no brainer for the developer and realtor.
I also think based on what Simka describes as needing to be done to make it a "luxury" building, that Simka perhaps hasn't spent time in many buildings that describe themselves as "luxury." The older ones routinely have plain hallways that haven't been updated in 20 years. Even the new build hallways aren't anything to brag about. Industrial carpets and modern light fixtures, and walls with only one layer of paint. Wow, how luxurious.
Honestly, it sounds to me like you guys are just bothered by the first big harbinger of gentrification for the coop market in Jackson Heights.
