Growing Your Business in Timeless Lower Manhattan
Lower Manhattan is filled with stories. The layers of history covering this stretch of the island from the Battery to the South Street Seaport and Canal Street are richer and complex. Of all the timeless vestiges in Lower Manhattan, none will stand taller than One World Trade Center, or 1 WTC, which at an expected 1776 feet will contain approximately 2,600,000 square feet of office space. Not only will 1 WTC increase the Lower Manhattan’s existing commercial building stock, it will attract new businesses seeking to capitalize on its burgeoning economic growth. Before the rents shoot up, start your search for Lower Manhattan office space below while the price for Class A and B buildings remains within reach.
Civic Strength and Capitalism’s Powerhouse, Operating Side by Side
Almost all of the city’s bureaucratic agencies are situated in Lower Manhattan because of their proximity to City Hall at 260 Broadway, in the surprisingly modest but peaceful environs of Civic Center Park. Operating behind the office buildings surrounding City Hall on nearby Federal Plaza, Chambers, Gold, and John Streets are numerous agencies, departments, and non-profit organizations determining the city’s public service needs. In stark contrast to the bureaucratic nexus of City Hall, however, is the symbolic powerhouse of capitalism—Wall Street. With the world’s top financial firms competing for space as close as possible to Wall Street, the asking rents for Class A office space here are understandably high but often worth the cost.
Getting the Jump on Office Space in Lower Manhattan
Still, it is also worth comparing properties on Wall Street and the Financial District with those in neighborhoods around Lower Manhattan, such as Battery Park City, Chinatown, and Tribeca. These areas contain quality Class A, B, and C office space. As mentioned earlier, it is wise to get the jump on these spaces before the rents significantly increase with Lower Manhattan’s already booming economic development. The construction of 1WTC , the renaissance of the South Street Seaport, and the increasing night life options on Fulton Street and Stone Street are bell weathers of the areas latest transformation.
