Not gentrification, it’s luxurification
Formerly an industrial area, East Tribeca — or east of West Broadway — is now becoming a luxury real estate hotspot. High-profile projects, such as 93 Worth Street, 57 Reade Street and 56 Leonard, are planned for this pocket. The area is also home to the Franklin Place building, whose penthouse recently sold for $10 million — or nearly $3,000 per square foot.
With the blessing of the city Landmarks Preservation Commission, a seven-story condo project will proceed at 6 Cortlandt Alley in the Tribeca East Historic District. The building will have five full-floor homes with choices of three or four bedrooms. No word yet on pricing.
Touchdown for Strahan
Former NFL defensive end and current talk show co-host Michael Strahan sold his 1,911-square-foot Tribeca pied-a-terre for $2.3 million. The pad has 18-foot-ceilings, exposed white-washed brick, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Strahan had planned to renovate the space, but the goal never materialized. He bought the home in 2008 for $1.66 million; the current buyer is under wraps.
