The Post yesterday noted the arrival of Arabella 101, the rental building that sits atop the new Lower Eastside Girls Club on Avenue D between Seventh Street and Eighth Street.
And the leasing office opens next week. Arabella 101 has 78 apartments (half of which are market-rate, the other half affordable).
Per the Post:
"Starting prices [for market-rate units] are about $2,500 for a studio, $2,900 for one-bedrooms," says Drew Spitler, director of development for the Dermot Company, Arabella 101’s developer. "And they're going up from there."
And the Arabella website has more details on the units... as well as the amenities like gym and roof deck...
Here are photos of the apartments from the website...
As we understand it, the Girls Club space is 30,000 square feet... while the residential portion of the building is 50,000 square feet. The main entrance into the Club will be on East Eighth Street while their cafe-bakery will have an entrance on Seventh Street, per Girls Club executive director Lyn Pentecost.
And the Girls Club is not developing or managing the residential component of the project, according to their website.
