Why Are 3+ Bedroom Tribeca Lofts in Such Demand?

Why Are 3+ Bedroom Tribeca Lofts in Such Demand? Tribeca Lofts - N Moore Street - New York (Photo By Tony Sargent)

Walking in Tribeca today on N. Moore Street, I noticed this scene outside the Montessori School and it made me smile. Then I thought, is this a big reason why 3-bedroom Tribeca lofts have been in such demand for the last 18 months?

World Trade Center Construction – Video by Silverstein Properties

Larry Silverstein and Silverstein Properties created this movie-quality video to market the new World Trade Center buildings to the commercial real estate community as reported by the New York Observer and Architect’s Newspaper. It provides a great visual sense of what the WTC buildings and Dowtown New York will look like twelve plus years of re-building after September 11th.
