Luring potential East Village condo buyers with a DJ and fine art raffle — not to mention an open bar and Katz's

The folks at Prudential Douglas Elliman are throwing a big party (hot!) Tuesday evening to introduce "2 hot new developments" — the Copper Building at 215 Avenue B at 13th Street ... and the no-fancy-name 525 E. 12th St. between Avenue A and Avenue B. As you can see in the disco-ball decorated flier above, potential condo buyers and various crashers will be treated to an open bar and food from Katz's. ("Send a salami to a condo buyer in...")

So, you know about Upper Avenue B's out-of-place Copper... But how about 525, which is real close to "THE ONLY REAL FRAT HOUSE AT NYU!" According to the listings for one of the seven available homes:

525 East 12th Street is one of the latest and finest new boutique condominium developments of the East Village. Superiorly located, this unique floor through lofts project, is facing the serene, beautifully landscaped Sauer Park. The building offers private keyed elevator that opens into each apartments, T.V. intercom system, 10 Years tax abatement, low C.C. and much more. This garden duplex is one of the most unique properties in downtown. Townhouse living: Gracious entry leads into an extraordinary double height living room with walls of windows overlooking your own private landscaped garden. The enormous chic Italian SCIC chef's kitchen is open through a Caesar stone quartz bar and equipped with a Subzero fridge, Wolf Range, A Zepher exterior vent that removes all cooking odors, Miele… D/W and Marvel dual zone wine cellar. The upper floor occupies the south facing bedrooms that give onto Sauer Park, the master bathroom with double sink and Neptune bath and the second bathroom that's furnished with green glass tiles and natural stone. Family room/ mezzanine includes the Washer and Dryer and its own WIC. Each zone has its own self controlled HVAC unit.

Prices at 525 range from $1.2 to $1.8 million.

Man, I would love to infiltrate and sabotage this. I'd wear three pastel polo shirts with all collars popped, sunglasses indoors, talk about how me and my frat bros totally got wasted at Superdive last night, and repeatedly ask if the building has a heated garage where I can park my Porsche. All while messily pigging out on Katz's and free beer (actually, that part wouldn't be ironic).

UGH. Condo F*cks.

There is only ONE guy that lives in the 12th street bldg. He often sits in his window, alone, and stares at us in the garden. Check out the awful medical office sign on the front of the place, between that and the fact that there is NO SUN in the middle of the apartments I dont know how they are going to sell the apartments left!
