The real estate speculators who started large condo projects at the height of the bubble continue to struggle. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that the Trump SOHO is discounting prices by 25% to boost slumping sales. Previously, it was reported that the prices of housing sales in the Battery Park City region saw one of the biggest decreases in the entire city.
