The leasing office for one of the tallest ground-up rental buildings in the Financial District will open by May 19, the vice president of marketing for Glenwood Management Corp., Stephen Maschi, said today at Citi Habitats' second annual Elite Residential Rental Forum.
Barclay Tower, a 50-story-plus building at 10 Barclay Street, just west of Broadway, will have around 400 one-, two-, and three-bedroom apartments.
The building will feature condominium-like amenities, including a fitness center, swimming pool, tenants' lounge, media center and children's playroom, Maschi said.
"New York is a rental city," Maschi noted. "Some people just don't want to buy."
Residents will be able to move into the tower by late summer; rental prices for its units have not yet been made public.
