Urbanization drives the stifling New York housing market Fox Business
October 27, 2014 – Fox Business
Throughout the US, urbanization continues its upward trend, increasing demand in many metropolitan housing markets. New York City is at the forefront of the boom. Bill Rudin, CEO of Rudin Management and co-developer of the anticipated NYC luxury condominium building, The Greenwich Lane, was a guest on FOX Business to speak to the urban surge. Rudin explained that a fairly significant portion of the demand is coming directly from locals. His observations are corroborated by the fact that almost 70% of The Greenwich Lane’s luxury condominiums sold thus far were purchased by New Yorkers. However, those Manhattan condominiums not sold to New Yorkers were sold to people all across the country—and the globe. With stunning residences like The Greenwich Lane almost 70% claimed, it’s clear the incredibly strong real estate market in NYC can be attributed at least in part to the appeal of city life being the highest it has ever been.
