Greenwich Village Apartments for Sale – Studio and One Bedroom Condos May 2013
- What is currently for sale in the market?
- What have these types of apartments been selling for?
- How do I go about buying one?
First I’d like to date stamp this discussion as we’ve discussed this topic before and as everybody knows real estate is all about having the most up-to-date information, currently we are in the May 2013 Spring Sales Market in New York City.
1. What is currently for sale in the Studio and One Bedroom Category in the Greenwich Village Neighborhood in New York City?
The Studio and One (1) Bedroom Condos for Sale in Greenwich Village is one of the most desired and fought over segments of the market. it is like a perfect storm of factors creating mass demand with very little supply, including the proximity of New York University and other universities, few condominium buildings within the neighborhood and very few new construction projects adding inventory in the foreseeable future. The outcome is that we consistently see bidding wars for the best studio’s and one bedroom condos to come available in Greenwich Village.
- I see Eleven (11)different Greenwich Village Studio and One bedroom Condominiums for sale right now
- Price ranges from $689.000 for an alcove studio at the Georgetown Plaza(A very good buy in my opinion) up to $2,295,000 for a One Bedroom at the Devonshire House
- The lowest priced one bedroom is available at 44 East 12th Street asking $799,000(Another very well priced apartment)
2. How much have Studio and One Bedroom Condos been Selling for in Greenwich Village?
- I see 17 apartments currently in contract, price range of $610,000 for a studio at 184 Thompson Street up to $2,175,000 for a One Bedroom at the Devonshire House
- Many of these apartments went into contract within less than 7 days of coming on the market
- Since the beginning of 2013, I track approximately 20 closed sales in the Studio and One Bedroom category with an average price per square foot of over $140 sq ft.
- Keep in mind that pricing depends a lot on the specific type of apartment. If you are looking for a pre-war condominium the price point typically starts around $1500-$2000 sq ft, or if you want a new construction condominium expect $2000 sq/ft and up.
- Take a look at an article we wrote back in 2010 about Greenwich Village Apartments for Sale and see how pricing has changed, the pricing was in the $1100-$1200 sq ft range back then. This is a very prime neighborhood and these are entry level apartments, with little supply coming on the market its a smart assumption to make that pricing will continue to increase.
3. Are you looking for a One Bedroom or Studio Condominium for Sale in Greenwich Village?
We have two main pieces of advice, first be open minded about pricing. Condos for sale in Greenwich Village, the West Village and the East Village are going to be more expensive than something in other Manhattan neighborhoods. We are typically asked why can I find a studio for $500,000 in Midtown West or the the Upper East Side but not in Greenwich Village? The answer is simple, it just doesn’t typically exist, the demand outweighs the supply and the pricing increases because of that relationship.
The second piece of advice is that once you are in the market and have seen some properties you have to move quickly. Moving quickly means a number of things. Have your financing in place, have your cash ready, have an attorney ready to handle contracts, you will have to make an offer quickly and negotiate quickly. If it comes down to a multiple offer situation, sellers obviously favor the highest price, but they also consider who is easy to work with. Which buyer has the least amount of obstacles to close, meaning who doesn’t need financing, who has a Manhattan experienced attorney, who comes across as easy to work with.
Are you ready to find out about what’s for sale in Greenwich Village, then give me a call to discuss what it is you are looking for. I can be reached at (917) 837-8869 .
This is a segment of the market we specialize in and we know depending on your budget and goals what buildings will work best for you. Often buyers looking for condos for sale in Greenwich Village will also look in the Meatpacking District or the West Village or in the Union Square neighborhood.
All information is deemed reliable but is not guaranteed.
Are you looking for a Meatpacking District Apartment for Sale and have a budget of around $500,000?
First, I always find it important to time stamp this type of analysis as pricing and inventory is always changing.
The Meatpacking District Neighborhood in New York City has established itself as a premium location in downtown Manhattan, its combination of historic charm, high end boutique shopping, restaurants and entertainment options have made it one of the most energetic neighborhoods. Apartments for Sale in the Meatpacking District have become a very hot commodity, and one of the reasons is that the supply of Meatpacking District apartments is always very low. There are just not that many condominiums that would be described as being near the Meatpacking District.If you have a budget of $500,000 what kind of apartment is for sale in the Meatpacking District?
If you are looking for Condominium Sales in the Meatpacking District than the answer is that there is No Availability right now. There is nothing on the apartment for sale right now if you are looking for a condominium for sale for less than $500,000.
The entry level for a condominium in the Meatpacking District usually is going to start around $600,000-$650,000 for a studio, if and when something does come on the market. We’ve been tracking sales for the Meatpacking District and usually only one or two of this size of apartment comes available every year.
One Bedrooms will vary in pricing depending on the building, for a non-doorman elevator doorman condominium like the Village Pointe Condominium at 350 West 14th Street, one bedrooms are selling in the $800,000 range. In a full time doorman new condominium building like you’d find at 345 West 14th Street or 450 West 17th Street- The Caledonia, expect the pricing to be around $1.5 million.
The Meatpacking District Neighborhood will continue to have a very limited supply of apartments for sale, it’s location between the West Village and West Chelsea Neighborhood has made it a prime location, so expect pricing to remain and exceed its current levels.

Manhattan New York Meatpacking District Neighborhood
The Meatpacking District Neighborhood in Manhattan New York is one of the most popular downtown locations. A historically designated and protected district, once home to the meatpacking industry in New York City, its heyday in the early 1900s has now transformed into a 24 hour destination.
Located in a small pocket between the West Village and the West Chelsea neighborhoods, running from Horatio/Gansevoort Streets on the South up to 16th Street to the north and from the Hudson River to Hudson Street/Ninth Avenue as its Western and Eastern borders. Not a huge neighborhood in total size, but what it may lack in size it packs a sizeable punch when it comes to the energy and ambiance when you step foot inside its borders.
Walking through the Meatpacking District you will see its history all around you. Including the awnings and canopies from the original meatpacking district businesses, the uneven cobble stone streets, the mixture of manufacturing warehouses, and most notably arguable they anchor attraction of the Meatpacking District as to the High Line Park. What was once an elevated train track that was built to transport the meatpacking manufactured products to all over New York City had become a derelict and eyesore of the neighborhood was transformed and restored into a Must See attraction for this neighborhood. What is now an open elevated park that runs along the Western side of the neighborhood and stopping in the low 30s in West Chelsea. The High Line Park is beautiful, a unique way to see New York City as you are about two stories above the street and literally snake your way through buildings, underneath them at time, its a great place to spend your time when visiting the neighborhood. The High Line Park is major attraction, both visitors and neighbors will be found there everyday of the week.
The other must see attraction in my opinion has to be the Chelsea Market. Once home to the National Biscuit Company, the birthplace of the Oreo Cooke, the Fig Newton, Vanilla Wafer and even the Saltine. Now home to one of the most trafficked food courts and concourses in all of Manhattan. This converted manufacturing facility has retail and food shops on its main floor and offices and studio’s on the upper floors including the Food Network and all of its tv shows. The Chelsea Market is the perfect place to go to eat, buy a gift, or just sit down and relax after a long day on the High Line Park.
The Meatpacking District Neighborhood has a double designation that protects its historical roots. It is still designated a manufacturing zone, making residential development extremely difficult to happen with its interior borders and it was designated a historic district, known as the Gansevoort Market Historic District, as established by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission. This combination makes any type of new development whether residential or commercial extremely difficult. Because of this most condominiums for sale in the Meatpacking District or actually located along the borders of the neighborhood or within a block or so within the designated section that is protected.
Another reason why the Meatpacking District has earned the reputation as a 24 hour neighborhood is because its home to a collection of hotels including the Standard Hotel along the High Line Park, the Gansevoort Hotel, the Soho House and the newest entry the Dream Hotel along the northern border of the neighborhood. All of these hotels are well established to have many nightlife options, restaurants and are extremely popular.
The Meatpacking District neighborhood is home to a collection of condominium buildings that are extremely desirable. Meatpacking District condominiums for sale is a segment of the downtown Manhattan real estate market that has exploded in popularity with its neighborhoods prominence. Just a handful of buildings exist that are typically referred to as being Meatpacking District Condominium buildings. There is a variety of buildings for all different types of purchases, whether it is a new construction apartment for sale in the Meatpacking District, or a Meatpacking District loft for sale, there is a little bit of variety.
