Bruce Ehrmann has 24 years of extensive real estate experience in the Manhattan and Brooklyn, New York markets. He is an expert in all types of residential properties, and represents many high-visibility clients from the arts and entertainment communities.
He has been the exclusive marketing agent or project manager for many highly successful development projects, including The Reade Street Houses (the first new single-family townhouse row south of Canal Street in 125 years); The Franklin Tower; Tower 270; 80 Chambers; The Porter House, designed by SHoP and listed recently as one of the 54 most splendid buildings in New York City); One Brooklyn Bridge Park; Loft25; The New Yorker Condominium; The Worth Building, and many others.
With Douglas Elliman Development Marketing, Bruce was responsible for the sales of Taconic Investment Partners and Oaktree Capital’s The Sterling Mason, designed by Morris Adjmi, with interiors by John and Christine Gachot. The Sterling Mason, with a sellout of over $250 million, was celebrated for having the finest layouts and designs in Tribeca. Bruce was also Director of Sales at SK Development Group, CB Developers and Ironstate Development’s Reade Chambers, designed by Annabelle Selldorf Architects. Both developments were prepared during the last recession and sold out quickly, at record prices, and with rapid absorption.
Currently, he is representing sales at the Morris Adjmi-designed 30E31 NoHo, a 40-story tower; 565 Broome SoHo, a 29-story twin tower designed by Renzo Piano Building Workshop, Renzo’s first residential building in New York City, with a $650 million sellout; and Quay Tower, a breakthrough condominium tower at Brooklyn Bridge Park in Brooklyn Heights, designed by Eran Chen of ODA, with a $550 million sellout.
Notable recent sales of Bruce’s include the $21- and $23 million penthouses of The Sterling Mason at well over $4,500/square foot; a $15 million residence in 150 Charles, designed by Rick Cook of CookFox Architects, one of the West Village’s most acclaimed contemporary developments; a recent $24 million contract signing for a Greenwich Village townhouse; a pending $37,500,000 penthouse contract at 565 Broome SoHo; a $9.225 million co-op sale at 75 Central Park West, with 60 feet of frontage along Central Park; a $9 million duplex on the Upper West Side’s 118 Riverside Drive; an $8 million penthouse at Reade Chambers; and a $45,000 duplex apartment rental (featuring a private full-length swimming pool) at 60 Collister Street in Tribeca’s landmarked American Express Carriage House.
Bruce and his wife, the artist Sandi Slone, have lived in the same Tribeca loft apartment for over thirty years. He is involved in neighborhood, city, and regional civic activities. He was a consulting party to the Federal Section 106 Process of the World Trade Center site and was an appointed member of the World Trade Center Memorial Committee of the Lower Manhattan Development Corporation.
Bruce has been Chair or Co-Chair of New York City’s Manhattan Community Board #1 Landmarks and Preservation Committee since 2001. Community boards are municipal government panels.
He also serves currently on the board of directors of the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, a non-profit founded originally by David Rockefeller to bring public art to Downtown Manhattan. The LMCC has grown exponentially over the decades to expand beyond Lower Manhattan, and now it hosts the River to River Festival, and runs arts residency studios in all media, as well as a gallery building, on Governors Island, between Brooklyn and Manhattan.
He is also a founding board member of Architecture Omi, a component of the Omi International Arts Foundation, on 300 acres in Columbia County, New York.
A graduate of Columbia University, Bruce was a reporter and worked for The New York Times, ABC’s Good Morning America, and elsewhere before entering real estate. He is working on an architecture and design show with the Academy Award-winning producer Fisher Stevens. He is an automobile and motorcycle aficionado, and collects Detroit “iron.”
