Rental Building News and Offers

Lower Manhattan is home to some of New York’s most highly coveted neighborhoods, and it shows in the price: According to CityRealty listings, the median Tribeca rent is $5,095/month, and Soho isn't far behind at a median price of $3,450/month. A proposed Soho rezoning could bring as many as 3,200 new housing units, which could include 600 to 900 affordable apartments, but that remains some years away.

As much of Soho, the West Village, and Tribeca are protected by historic district designations, much of the rental stock is comprised of prewar walkups that often lack modern amenities and finishes. But there is a small stock of full-service luxury rentals providing the bells and whistles today’s renter has come to expect and appreciate. We take a look at the top 10 luxury rentals between 14th Street and Chambers Street, as well as the new Downtown rentals we’re most excited to see.
