A casual walk through Lower Manhattan shows what looks like a lively atmosphere and recently rejuvenated dining, shopping, and working scene. It's not one's imagination; according to Downtown Alliance's Real Estate Year in Review, the area has welcomed the return of the Cortlandt Avenue subway stop, two new NYC ferry routes, 95 newly opened retailers, and over 700 new hotel rooms. The remarkable resurgence extends to the realm of residential as well: Over 1,300 residential units opened in six buildings, and 2,900 units in 19 buildings are in the pipeline.
The report cites luxury rentals 20 Broad Street and 19 Dutch as examples, but apartment sales have proven highly desirable as well. Leading the charge is One Wall Street, the largest office-to-condo conversion in the history of New York. Ralph Walker built it as the Irving Trust Company headquarters around 1930, and it is being converted to studio through four-bedroom condos with a $1.686 billion sellout and high-end finishes.
