No-Fee Apartment of the Week: $2,150 studio in the Financial District
Finish out the lease at this $2,150 studio in the Financial District's Ocean 1 West building and you'll be eligible to renew in March.
Pros: The luxury rental building, located across from Battery Park, has tons of amenities, including 24-hour doorman and concierce, fitness center, on-site dry cleaning, laundry and housekeeping. There's also laundry on every floor.
Cons: The space (suprise!) looks pretty small, and the temporary lease may not suit everyone. Also, if you do renew the lease after March 2013, you can expect a rent increase. A quick look on StreetEasy shows recent asking rents for studios in the building at around $2,500/month.
