‘Superb’ $2.3 million apartment in Manhattan’s ‘Superman’ neighborhood will be named after DC Comics superhero
It was a super-hot July day in downtown Manhattan and the man behind the name “Superman” was already in town for the opening of a new apartment building that will house his super-powered family.
The Superman Place at 556 West 47th Street, just blocks from where Superman lives, was officially named in honor of DC Comics hero.
The building is set to be completed in late 2019.
It will feature a 1,400-square-foot loft with an outdoor pool, a rooftop deck, and a heated patio.
Its design will reflect the superhero’s origins in the DC Comics universe, which includes his alter ego, Superman.
A DC Comics spokesman confirmed the news to The Sport, saying that Superman Place is “designed with a retro feel to celebrate the superhero identity and a modern feel.”
Superman Place will be located in the same building that houses the DC Comic headquarters and other DC properties.
In 2018, the building’s opening ceremony was moved to New York City’s Times Square.
The apartment building is owned by the same family as the Superman Place on West 47 th Street.
