Add Northern Tribeca to the list of Manhattan micro-neighborhoods that have gone from under-the-radar to next-big-thing. This section of Tribeca stayed underdevelped for years, but no longer: developers are responding to high demand by building numerous luxury apartment buildings in Northern Tribeca. It was only a matter of time before the westernmost section of Canal Street became the next hot section of Manhattan, and now it’s Northern Tribeca’s turn in the spotlight. Pioneering Manhattanites are paying top dollar to live in this enclave, partly because it has that up-and-coming cachet that gives buyers of Manhattan luxury apartments the feeling that they’re living in the “It” neighborhood, and partly because the luxury apartments for sale in Northern Tribeca cater to current tastes. They're large, converted industrial spaces, exactly the kind of Manhattan properties that buyers of luxury apartments in Manhattan love.
