It’s the most coveted neighborhood in New York City. In fact, there’s a lot of history in Tribeca but its mid-19th century history is what put Tribeca in the annals and what carries the essence of Tribeca to today. The area was transformed into a commercial center in the mid-19th century with a large number of industrial and loft buildings constructed along Broadway in the 1850’s and 1860’s. Many of these buildings were constructed in the Italianate and Romanesque Revival styles with cast-iron factories and warehouses that were built with large picture windows. Many of these buildings comprise the apartments of what Tribeca is known for today: light-filled loft-like apartments.
The current development frenzy going on in Tribeca today also encompasses these attributes. In the following pages you will read about all of the new developments which have high ceilings, a plethora of light, and large open loft-like layouts. The great thing about this current development is that these new residences have been designed with utmost thoughtful design details. 21st century technology like smart wiring, zoned heating, top notch appliances, building security features, and a host of amenities in this new era of development represents history in the making. Whether you prefer boutique buildings or larger apartment buildings there are a lot to choose from to fit your style of living. It’s all about luxury for those who prefer a higher standard of living in a low key quiet neighborhood.
