著名景区英文介绍:纽约新摩天大楼

One57, a 1,004-foot tower under construction in Midtown Manhattan, will soon hold the title of New York's tallest building with residences. But without fanfare from its ultra private future residents, it is cementing a new title: the global billionaires' club.
One57是曼哈顿中城正在建设的一栋1004英尺(合306米)高的大楼,很快就将赢得纽约最高住宅楼的盛名。尽管其十分低调的未来住户不会大肆庆祝,但这栋大楼也有了一个新称号:全球亿万富翁俱乐部。

The buyers of the nine full-floor apartments near the top that have sold so far -- among them two duplexes under contract for more than $90 million each -- are all billionaires, Gary Barnett, the president of the Extell Development Company, the building's developer, said this week. The other seven apartments ranged in price from $45 million to $50 million.
这栋大楼的开发商,Extell开发公司(Extell Development Company)总裁加里•巴尼特(Gary Barnett)表示,到目前为止,靠近顶层的整层公寓已售出九套,其中包括两套每套售价超过9000万美元的复式公寓,另外七套公寓的价格从4500万美元到5000万美元不等。这些已售出公寓的买主,全都是亿万富翁。

The billionaires' club includes several Americans, at least two buyers from China, a Canadian, a Nigerian and a Briton, according to Mr. Barnett and brokers who have sold apartments in the building, at 157 West 57th Street. Mr. Barnett said that at least a few buyers were "significant Forbes billionaires".
这栋大楼位于西57街157号。巴尼特和售出过公寓的经纪人透露,纽约这个“亿万富翁俱乐部”中包括几名美国人、至少两名来自中国的买家、一名加拿大人、一名尼日利亚人和一名英国人。巴尼特说,至少有一些买主是“福布斯富豪榜里的显赫人物”。
Since late last year, the "trophy" end of New York's real estate market has been recording eye-popping sales that seem to have little basis in reality. The signed contract for the nearly-11,000-square-foot duplex on the 89th and 90th floors of One57 that sold for about $95 million topped the record sale in March of a penthouse at 15 Central Park West to a Russian billionaire's daughter for $88 million. In June, Steve Wynn, the Las Vegas casino magnate, paid $70 million for a duplex pent house apartment above the Ritz-Carlton.
去年年底以来,纽约超高端地产市场产生了令人瞠目结舌的优异销售成绩,高得似乎完全脱离了现实基础。One57第89/90层的复式公寓面积将近1.1万平方英尺(合1022平方米),签约价格为9500万美元,突破了3月的一笔交易所创下的记录,当时,一位俄罗斯亿万富翁的女儿,以8800万美元的价格购得了中央公园西路15号的顶层公寓。今年6月,拉斯维加斯赌场大亨史蒂夫•韦恩(Steve Wynn)曾出资7000万美元,购得丽思卡尔顿酒店(Ritz-Carlton)上的顶层复式公寓。

Individual sales aside, it is the sheer concentration of wealth in One57, a $1.5 billion development, that is raising the eyebrows of some longtime market watchers.
撇开那些单笔销售不谈,One57这个成本15亿美元的开发项目令一些长期关注市场的人士所惊叹的,是其中聚集的大量财富。

"The scale of wealth in this building is just unheard of," said Jonathan J. Miller, president of Miller Samuel, a property appraiser. "Despite all the problems economically, you are seeing these people invest in real estate unlike in any period that has ever happened."
“这栋楼里聚集的财富规模前所未闻。”房地产评估企业米勒萨缪尔公司(Miller Samuel)的总裁乔纳森•J•米勒(Jonathan J. Miller)说,“尽管当前经济存在很多问题,但是仍能看到有人以过去任何时期都没有过的方式,投资房地产。”
Since sales began in the building in November, Extell has signed contracts for more than $1 billion worth of apartments, about $300 million just this summer, Mr. Barnett said. Fewer than 40 of the 92 apartments remain unsold, among them four full-floor units. But Mr. Barnett said two potential buyers from China were "circling" one of them.
巴尼特称,这栋大楼去年11月开盘以来,Extell已签约的公寓总价值超过10亿美元,单单今年夏天就有约3亿美元。92套公寓中,只有不到40套仍未售出,其中包括4套整层公寓。不过巴尼特说,两名来自中国的潜在买主正在考虑这四套整层公寓中的一套。
