top-five-condos-financial-district Top Five Condos This Week in FIDI
Located on Manhattan's southeastern tip, the Financial District (FIDI) is the financial heart of the city, boasting the New York Stock Exchange and Federal Reserve Bank of New York. The neighborhood consists of the area south of City Hall Park and east of Battery Park City. While it was once a neighborhood known for traders and office workers, the recent conversions of office real estate to residential developments has attracted young professionals to move in. The neighborhood also features many high-end buildings with more affordable residences than what one would find in other family-friendly neighborhoods.

The Financial District currently has 509 units for sale. The median price of condos is $1.9M and the median price of co-ops is significantly less, at $764K. The top ten FIDI condos on CityRealty right now are:

1. W New York Downtown, 123 Washington Street

2. 20 Pine Street

3. Southbridge Towers, 299 Pearl Street

4. 75 Wall Street

5. Downtown Club, 20 West Street

6. Downtown By Starck, 15 Broad Street

7. 15 William NY, 15 William Street

8. Greenwich Club, 88 Greenwich Street

9. 50 West Street

10. The Setai Wall Street, 40 Broad Street

TOP FIVE SALES LISTINGS IN FIDI

1. 3 Hanover Square, #21E

— For $425,000

This studio apartment is the most popular search this week which makes sense since it also happens to be the least expensive sales listing in FIDI. It's located in 3 Hanover Square, a full-service co-op building that's also pet-friendly. The best part about this studio is that it doesn't compromise on kitchen space like most studios do - there's a full-sized, renovated and windowed kitchen with a dishwasher, plenty of cabinet storage and prep space, and a full-size refrigerator. There is also a renovated, windowed bathroom with a dressing area and tiled stall shower. Building amenities include a full-time doorman, on-site maintenance, same floor laundry utilities, and an opportunity to purchase private storage. Definitely a steal.

2. Downtown Club, 20 West Street, #21K

— For $795K

The second listing is also a good deal considering it comes from a historically landmarked full-service condominium, the Downtown Club at 20 West Street. Unit 21K is an east-facing loft-like apartment that contains 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom. The sun-filled residence is modern with an open layout that seamlessly connects the living area to the kitchen, which features stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. The location couldn't be better with the World Trade Center nearby and red, green, yellow subway lines within a 1-block radius.

3. Southbridge Towers, 299 Pearl Street, #13J

— For $759,000

Southbridge Towers is a huge complex with more than 1,000 units in its 9 buildings, made up of condos and co-ops. The complex also has quite a few affordable residences like this one at 90 Gold Street. Subpar listing photos aside, unit 13J is a fully renovated 1-bedroom apartment with views of the Empire State building, beautiful laminate flooring throughout, and custom-made closet doors. It's also move-in ready with the option of coming furnished. The low maintenance cost of $615 includes gas, electric, air conditioning, heat and water.

4. W New York Downtown, 123 Washington Street, #39A

— For $1,495,000
