Which of These Spacious Seaport Apartments Reigns Supreme?

New, 2 comments

Imagine you have around $1,750,000 to spend on a place and you've narrowed it down to two apartments 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: 59 John Street #6F/ 270 Water Street #4F+4R
Price: $1,485,000 $1,750,000
Monthly Costs: $3,004 $2,268
Square Footage: 1,757 2,100
Beds, Baths: 2, 2.5 3, 2

? This spacious, high-ceilinged apartment in 59 John Street is asking $845/square foot, but even with its 421g tax abatement its monthly charges are 32 percent higher than those of its counterpart. However, it does have nice finishes and cute little home office with a bookshelf wall.

? This full-floor loft in 270 Water Street is both bigger and pricier, but comes out to a slightly lower $833/square foot. It's much more loft-y, and includes wooden ceiling beams and exposed brick. It's also currently configured as two separate apartments that could be combined.
