  • From the archives: The future of Lower Manhattan

    Check out the predictions for the neighborhood from neraly 10 years back
    January 24, 2015 01:00PM By Tom Acitelli

    Bloomberg vs. Silverstein

    The future of Lower Manhattan is not in doubt. It will finish recovering from September 11. But what will its real estate makeup be when that recovery finishes? Some real estate analysts point to Battery Park City for an answer. In the 1990s, according to a market analysis by CB Richard Ellis, Battery Park City was roughly one-third residential and two-thirds commercial. By 2008, after fresh construction that includes the new Goldman Sachs headquarters and additional housing, the neighborhood should be about half residential and half commercial.
