Small boutique development in Tribeca at affordable prices. Building has a tax abatement and quite a lot of amenities for a small building.
The Not So Good
The neighborhood feels more like Financial District than Tribeca. Not so convenient as other neighborhoods. Most of the units lack natural light as the building is surrounded by other high rises.
The Bottom Line
Well priced new development in Tribeca is worth considering if you are budget conscious, however there are other properties that may be well suited in other parts of the city.
Minimalism at its finest is what you will find beyond the glass at FIFTY Franklin. All units have floor-to-ceiling windows and oak plank flooring. The natural light offers an openness and freedom to each condo, and some units have private terraces with Arcadia sliding doors, meant to extend the luxurious feel outdoors.
More a work of art than a building, the Ed Rawlings-designed 18-story tower houses 72 units, and is a paean to modern style. Amenities include a full-time concierge, live-in super, fitness center, multimedia lounge, and available parking. Additional specialty features like a guest apartment and pet spa are located on-site as well.
Upscale and peaceful, Tribeca is home to cobblestone streets and restaurants like The Odeon, Locanda Verde, and Khe-Yo. Shopping, galleries, and nightlife can also be found in this section of Lower Manhattan. 50 Franklin is located a few blocks north of City Hall, close to numerous subways, and convenient to the Financial District.
