Hear from our very own Mitchel Flaherty about his views on afforable housing in the Bronx.
FOR SALE: 88 and 90 White Street
This site consists of two adjacent buildings in Chinatown. The five-story, 9,350-square-foot building at 88 White Street was built in 1890 and has two commercial floors; three two-bedroom, full-floor apartments; and a basement. The third-floor apartment is occupied and rent-stabilized; the other spaces will be delivered vacant. The two-story, 10,500-square-foot building at 90 White Street was built in 1915 and includes a mezzanine level.
Taller buildings are going up, but, so far, developers are making good on their promises to bring affordable housing to the neighborhood.
Lower Manhattan, which experienced the enormous 9/11 tragedy, has come back to life—but is now facing new challenges brought on by COVID-19, just as other cities are, too.
Two decades since the 9/11 attacks, Lower Manhattan has bounced back, transforming into a vibrant residential neighborhood as well as a top-tier business district that has drawn major office tenants to the area.
The changes have gone hand in hand with New York City’s metamorphosis. According to Mike Aziz, Partner and Director of Urban Design at architecture firm Cooper Robertson, at a macro scale, New York City has been evolving from an almost purely hub and spoke model—which relies on Manhattan’s central business districts to drive the city’s economic engine—to a more distributed and decentralized model.
