The Changing Grand Street Co-ops: Join The Lo-Down For a Panel Talk at the Manny Cantor Center June 2

Here’s a one-of-a-kind opportunity in the Grand Street Cooperatives:  a chance to combine two 19th floor apartments into a two or three bedroom, two bath home of your dreams.

Real Estate Market Showing Signs of Life on Grand Street


In the last couple of months, Manhattan real estate brokers have reported some glimmers of hope. While the market as a whole is still dismal, less expensive properties appear to be moving again. We wanted to find out what’s happening on the Lower East Side, so we checked in with Halstead Senior Vice President Neal Young, who specializes in the Grand Street Co-ops.

Over coffee at Cafe Patisco on East Broadway, Young confirmed what the second quarter market reports suggested: since the early spring he’s seen an uptick in sales, as sellers adjusted their expectations. Stretching from Essex Street to the East River, there are around 4500 apartments in four separate complexes: Seward Park, Hillman, Amalgamated and East River Housing. In the six years Young has been selling apartments on Grand Street, he’s seen prices skyrocket, peaking at the end of 2007. By September of last year, when the economy cratered, almost nothing was moving.

But Young says, in the last three months, “activity has picked up decidedly. One thing that helps the Lower East Side is that the entry level point is lower than a lot of other neighborhoods. And so people who were priced out of the market are now realizing they can now afford to buy in Manhattan. So we’re getting a lot of first time home buyers.”  Young estimates the price declines on Grand Street have been anywhere
from 15 to 20-percent. Even though the market has stabilized (he has more than 20 apartments in contract), and a slight uptick in prices is possible in the next 12 months — he’s not
anticipating prices will begin escalating again for three to five years.

On Halstead’s web site, Young and his partner Jeremy Bolger, are listing one-bedroom apartments starting at $395-thousand. There’s a signed contract on a one-bedroom for $365,000. “Where else are you going to get a large apartment, potentially with some views, some outdoor space for 500-600 per square foot,” he said. Young told me a lot of buyers are looking to trade up. In one case, a family sold a renovated one-bedroom and moved in to an a two-bedroom apartment (that had not been renovated) for less money.

A 275 sq. foot balcony is the selling point of a one-bedroom apartment Halstead is listing for $659,000.
