Which of These Stylish Seaport Lofts Would You Buy?

New, 8 comments

Imagine you have around $1,850,000 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: 140 Nassau Street #15A/ 265 Water Street #8
Price: $1,850,000 $1,840,000
Maintenance: $2,245 $1,900
Square Footage: 1,460 1,650
Beds, Baths: 1, 1.5 2, 1.5

↑ This high-floor apartment in 140 Nassau Street costs more per square foot, but it also includes unobstructed views of the Woolworth Building from a shared roof deck. There are a whole lot of windows and some nice molding, and it's further inland, which is probably a good thing if you're worried about the next superstorm.

↑ This 265 Water Street loft's charm comes from its exposed brick, wood ceiling beams, and wood-framed windows. It also includes a huge screened off portion currently configured as an office, although it looks like it could be versatile.
