At 60 stories 56 Leonard will be the tallest residence in Tribeca.

Most of the 145 units are spoken for besides a select few of the 4 and 5 bedroom homes starting at 14M.

New York City is one of the most amazing cities in the world. That being said, Development is ever so changing. New construction on west side, more luxury high rise buildings are being built and crime overall has been decreasing. "Nicest areas" is a subjective matter depending on a persons definition of nice. I would love to help you in your search or help educate you on the city and certain areas of growth since you have last been here in 1996.

This was just addressed in the New York Times. "For the first time since such data have been tracked, the average price for luxury condominiums downtown superseded the uptown average. The trend persisted into this year, with condos priced above $2,000 a square foot averaging nearly $5.9 million downtown in the first quarter [2013], compared with $5.6 million uptown" ... more

If a friend or relative performs part of the work, treat them in exactly the same manner -- have a contract, demand adherence to your schedule, etc.

Don't let a gift or a good price disrupt the project overall.
Questions to Ask

What is a good design for our needs?

What is a building code? Does it effect us? How does it work? What doesn't it do?

Who is responsible, overall, for my building project?

What are good sizes and proportions for rooms? What style do I want?

What am I really getting from the builder?

What problems do I have in my current house that I don't want to repeat?

Where can I find answers and help? How do I make my desires known?

What does that line on the drawing mean?

What is a dispute; a lien?

What are specifications? Does the builder write and provide them?

What if my builder does something in a way I don't like? Is the house going to be complete; will something be left out?

When will the house be finished?

What is a contract? How do I play a part in it? What does it say?

What is "an extra"?

Is that a good material, I've never heard of it?

Can I change things?

Who picks the color of the paint, wall coverings, etc.?

Is landscaping included? Sod? Seed? mud and rocks? Slopes? Are landscape features guaranteed?

What if I disagree with the builder? Can I stop the work?
If you need to buy or sale ,please call me I will be glad to help :)

There are MANY ways to make your apartment "more green." To your advantage, many of these eco-friendly improvements will save you money on utilities that you wish you did not have to pay.

Start off by installing sun shielding shades and blinds in order to control sunlight during the summer and use less heat.

During the winter months, remove your window AC unit in order to prevent the cold air from entering, and instead place a plastic cover over it.

If you can, find an apartment with double pane windows. These are designed to prevent heat or cold air from entering or escaping, allowing you to use less heat or air conditioning.

Finally, you could schedule an energy audit in order to obtain an expert's advice! Energy auditors will use specialized tools and skills in order to evaluate the current state of your home and recommend appropriate measures needed to upgrade your home and make it even more eco-friendly.

I am an San Francisco citizen interested in purchasing in the Power supply Playground place, but have been discouraged by the leasehold qualities and big monthly installments to BPC Power. Just thinking if the same relates to qualities in the Tribeca place.

Elan Gavish answered:
Hi Riham,

While I do agree with the both of the answers below, I believe the agents forgot to mention that there are two new construction buildings, (101 Warren and 200 Chambers) that are on the southern part of Tribeca. 101 Warren is on top of a Whole Foods which does raise its value. The main reason you would want to purchase at the bottom part of Tribeca is because of the new Fulton street station that will be ready in 2014. By 2014 the new Freedom Towers and the Fulton street station will be up bringing the value of the property up by then dramatically. Knowing future information like this is crucial as I myself am a developer as well as a broker so a high capitalization rate is always a concern of mine!
Please let me know if you have any more questions!

Coops tend not to be as good as condos. Coop come with restrictions but lower prices. Condos generally tend to be without as many restrictions but there are always exceptions to the rules such as Condops. Higher downpayment will get you the best loans if you can afford it.

Thank you!

Jenet Levy answered:
In general, when comparing condos to co-ops, condos are generally higer in purchase price and a little lower in monthly costs. Co-ops are less expensive, but higher in monthly costs. You are asking on the basis of price per square foot. With condos, we know the price per square foot, because it is in the offering plan. In co-ops, we usually do not know the accurate square footage, because what is in the offering plan is the number of shares in the corporation associated with the unit, not square footage. In many cases where it is listed, it is very inaccurate. Furthermore the way square footage is measured in condos is a different methodology than co-ops.
What is important is to work with an experienced agent and get pre-qualified. You may or may not meet guidelines for most co-ops. It is easier to qualify for a condo for several reasons. Once you know where you stand from that perspective, start looking with your agent and find the place that feels right for you.
