Neighboring $1.8M Soho Lofts Enter Campaign Mode

New, 2 comments

Imagine you have around $1,800,000 to spend on an apartment and you've narrowed it down to two co-ops in the same neighborhood. How do you make up your mind? The answer is simple: you shove them into a metaphorical cage and let them battle it out until one emerges victorious. It's time for Real Estate Deathmatch.

Address 514 Broadway #PH6G 66 Crosby Street #2F
Price $1,650,000 $1,850,000
Maintenance $1,211 $1,721
Square Footage 1,200 1,690
Beds, Baths 1, 2 1, 2
Floor 6 2

We were halfway through this post when we realized that these Soho apartments with very similar floorplans are actually in the same building, but maybe that makes it...even more interesting? Usually, the penthouse is indisputably the best unit in any given building, but in this case #2F is almost 500 square feet larger and $200,000 pricier (with $500 higher monthly costs.) It also appears to have higher ceilings, which is very odd. So what does #PH6G have going for it? Well, other than the massive savings, it has significantly more exposed brick, nicer looking flooring, a crazy light fixture that looks like a hornet's nest, and, probably most significantly, a roofdeck. And it's four floors higher.
