Shopping Spree

February 28, 2008 -- It's not every building that will give its buyers a free winter wardrobe.

But that's basically what Atelier gave first-time New York-buyer Mike Feliton when he bought a one-bedroom condo there.

No, the developers of the building on West 42nd Street didn't take Feliton to Saks Fifth Avenue and help him pick out a new Cole Haan coat for himself and an aqua-blue Marc Jacobs for his girlfriend. But they let him put his $90,000-plus down payment on his American Express card, which gave him all the bonus points he needed to fund his shopping spree.
