After a few years of near-zero interest rates, the Federal Reserve has indicated that it will likely raise them in March 2022. The hope is that this move will eventually rein in inflation. It could also cool New York's red-hot real estate market, which has experienced a strong buying spree in recent months.

Meanwhile, unusually big end-of-the-year bonuses are burning a hole in certain professionals’ pockets. Bankers and traders, much like those found at Lower Manhattan exchanges and offices, saw a jump in bonuses not seen since the Great Recession, with the very top predicted to collect an extra $5 million to $10 million, following a year of mergers, takeovers, and IPOs. This is not limited to the finance sector; Forbes reports that Apple offered significant stock bonuses in a preemptive move to retain talent, and Meta (nee Facebook) is offering high salaries to woo talent.

The finance and tech sectors are known for their desire to have the biggest and the best, which would make Tribeca a natural fit. Many of the industrial buildings of yesteryear have been converted to luxurious residences, and new development has gone up with approval from the Landmarks Preservation Commission ("Landmarks") where required. Add in easy access to some of the city's top restaurants and nightlife, as well as the offices some may be expected to return to in the coming weeks, and it's little surprise that Tribeca sold its largest number of apartments on record (533) in 2021. This shows in prices - CityRealty data shows that the median sale price per square foot of Tribeca condos has thus far come in at $2,201, higher than pre-pandemic prices.

Below, we take a look at six new development penthouses. Some are located in historic conversions, others in well-conceived new construction, and all offer expansive floor plans, top-of-the-line appliances and finishes, private outdoor space, and prime downtown addresses.
