Lower Manhattan is graced with some of the most eclectic and architecturally rich streetscapes in the city, if not the country. Thanks to building boom and bust cycles spanning three centuries, structures range from the Georgian-styled Fraunces Tavern (1719) to the edgy metal and glass constructs of today.

Ever-shifting industries and the deindustrialization of Manhattan have resulted in scores of older commercial buildings adaptively reused for residential living. Fortunately, this does not come at the expense of eye-catching architectural details like soaring ceilings, oversized windows, exposed brick and beams, and original columns. Below, find a selection of new-to-the-market listings in some of downtown's finest converted buildings.
