The Jefferson reveals what '21st Century living in the heart of Olde New York' costs



And yesterday, The Jefferson — the luxury condos that rose up from the former Mystery Lot on East 13th Street — unveiled its pricing and floor plans, as BuzzBuzz Home first noted. (We spotted the listings at Curbed.)

The Jefferson's marketing campaign asks, "Can you afford not to buy?" Unfortunately, the units turn out to be more than $300. The listings include a 536-square-foot studio for $850,000 up to a two-bedroom penthouse with a rooftop terrace for $2.49 million. In between, one-bedrooms range from $1.11 and $1.54 million.

Anyway, go look at the units... come back and comment... Or just comment.

And the view from East 13th Street...



...and the roof...

Could saved the old theater for the cost of the penthouse or so. And the neighborhood would have been better off for it. Sleek, cold, sterile interiors...just perfect for today's on the go, bloodless lifestyle!

Good stuff. From their website...

"The East Village, specifically, is a neighborhood within Manhattan considered to be the area spanning from the East River to Broadway, between Houston & 14th Street, and is residential area that has continued to blossom as the nexus for New York City’s counterculture. Known as the birthplace of many iconic artistic movements and venues, including our very own site location which was once home to the celebrated Jefferson Theatre, the East Village is distinguished as the historical home of punk rock, Andy Warhol, Club57, Fillmore East a.k.a. “The Church of Rock and Roll”, CBGB’s, Jimi Hendrix, Charlie Parker, the galvanization of post-modern art, Jackson Pollack, Jack Kerouac, Madonna, The Ramones, among countless others that have helped define new directions in American fine arts and popular culture.

Today, The Jefferson is surrounded by our current East Village cultural icons: Momofuku, Gotham Bar & Grill, Union Square Café, Wd-50, Esperanto, Co-Op Food & Drink, Il Buco, Gnocco, Northern Spy Food Co., Webster Hall, Café Mogador, Blind Pig, New York University, The Cooper Union, Union Square, Mercury Lounge, Nuyorican Poets Café, The Orpheum Theatre, and so much more, all within walking distance of public transportation."

It's a nice-looking building. A bit out of my price range though.

I just checked out the site, and the units are priced near $2 million, although there is one for $850,000. That's probably the "affordable" unit! Who is going to snap that one up?

Bring back the boarded-up Jeff Theater with its headless gargoyles. Still looked better than this sterile piece of crap, and it didn't even register on the pretension scale, unlike The Junkerson.

This proves it--Rich people in NYC just aren't that interesting.

Glad to see so many new mega apartment complexes being built. Question. Who is creating jobs for all of these people?
