Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker Ariel Tirosh, who is marketing the property for Douglas Elliman, explained to Multi-Housing News that the Lower East Side is in the midst of transitioning: “It used to be a very young neighborhood of mostly newcomers, but with the luxury and services that are in (100 Norfolk) and in the neighborhood, we see the 50+ demographic buying (more often).”
Amenities include a gym and yoga room, secure bicycle storage and a third-floor garden lounge. An outdoor rooftop terrace offers sweeping views of downtown Manhattan and the Williamsburg Bridge, which provides quick access to Brooklyn, pointing to what Tirosh describes as one of the asset’s strongest selling points—its surroundings.
“You’re so central to downtown Manhattan, and the subway is right here, so it gives people a quick way to get uptown or to Midtown,” Tirosh commented. “Twelve stories in this low-rise neighborhood is tall, so the views are phenomenal.”
