all around the town / 3 open houses at $2.55mm

Here are three Sunday loft open houses at the same price in very different Manhattan neighborhoods, at sizes ranging from almost 2,400 sq ft to just over 1,600 sq ft, all with fairly deluxe finishes, all in new developments. One has a huge wrap terrace, one has (essentially) no amenities, one is a former recording studio. Two have building websites. One is in the up-and-coming Financial District, one is in the up-and-coming (way) West 50s, one is at the up-and-coming edge of tres chic Tribeca.

(Don’t forget to check the sites to make sure the open houses are still on Sunday morning – and make appointments where required)
