Rental Incentives during peak summer months in NYC? Sounds too good to be true but it’s not.

New York’s prime leasing season is well under way and there are more choices then ever for prospective renters. Typically, from May through August property owners across New York City have the upper hand as college graduates flock to the city in preparation for their new jobs as well as families gearing up to secure a residence before the new school year. Renters in NYC know all too well to expect higher rents during these summer months, and those that find themselves in the cycle of leasing during the summer are usually prepare for sticker shock.
For the first time in almost four years of growth in the NYC real estate market property owners are having to get creative with incentives like paying the broker fee and offering free rent to attract more interested renters. There are more choices in the market now more than previous years because prices are beyond what most people can or will pay for a rental. Renters looking for a new place to call home this summer have a competitive advantage as they can be more choosy in what they put an application in for. People who may not have ideal credit are getting approved much faster than in past as landlords appear to be more willing to work tenants. While incentives are typically neighborhood specific, certain older rental buildings are also competing by offering their own incentives.
As one of the leading boutique firms in the New York Metropolitan Area, NY Living Solutions specializes in helping renters and buyers navigate the Financial District. NY Living Solutions has access to many no-fee apartment rentals all throughout Manhattan including luxury condominiums as well as new grand opening properties with incredible amenities.

Luxury Rental Building NYC Directory – Historic Front Street

 – Historic Front Street




Buildings  Historic Front Street is the restoration of an entire block of landmark buildings on Front Street between Beekman Street and Peck Slip, one block south of the Brooklyn Bridge.  The eleven 18th century buildings and three new buildings will contain unique and very special residential rental apartments and ground floor retail spaces.  Historic Front Street is at the center of a revitalized landmark district and is the largest historic preservation project to incorporate Green Design as an integral part of its design, construction and operation.

Residences  Historic Front Street combines historic preservation, modern architecture and green design to create a community of ninety five apartments in one of New York’s oldest and most authentic neighborhoods.  Each of the apartments reflect the unique character of the buildings and the rich historic fabric of this wonderful landmark district.

Neighborhood  Seaport North is one of the oldest neighbordhoods in the City with its roots going back to the mid 18th century.  Having been bypassed by the development of Downtown, it looks much like it did 200 years ago and it has retained the feel of a gritty, working waterfront community.  With the relocation of the Fulton Fish Market this winter and the completion of Historic Front Street, the uses of the buildings will change but the qualities of this waterfront community will be retained.  It will become a 24/7 residential community with vibrant retail and restaurant activity on the ground floor.  There will be access to a new public space on Peck Slip and to the waterfront that will be transformed to provide access to the River, cultural and recreational facilites and parks.
