The Real Deal unveils special Lower Manhattan supplement

January 11, 2010 10:37AM

Lower Manhattan may be struggling through the financial downturn — after all, it’s the home base for the city’s fiscal meltdown — but the neighborhood has emerged as one of the most fascinating to watch for real estate junkies. In a special supplement to its print issue this month The Real Deal examined what makes the southern tip of Manhattan tick. The stories include a look at the potential problems in the Downtown office real estate market, the excess inventory that’s giving the Financial District’s residential brokers headaches, and the neighborhood’s downgrading retail landscape — from high-end boutiques to discount chains. But it’s not all doom and gloom: The Real Deal also examines the up and coming projects in Lower Manhattan and South Street Seaport, a once-overlooked neighborhood that’s now attracting attention. There are also charts on the Financial District residential market and the Downtown office, retail and hotel markets.
