We've been watching the three-day effort to raise the sidewalk bridge on Third Avenue at East 11th Street …
All this is ahead of the big renovations at 55 Third Ave., which despite its drab appearance, is not an NYU dorm. The Benchmark Real Estate Group actually paid $57 million for the 12-floor building late last year.
The Real Deal had the scoop yesterday on what to expect in the currently-tenant-free building, now known as Eleventh and Third:
Rent for the units will range from $3,500 for a studio to $6,000 for a one-bedroom to as much as $10,000 for a two-bedroom, the spokesperson said. Some of the one- and two-bedroom apartments feature a private outdoor space.
The building is getting a makeover to look less dormy.
As for the retail tenants that share the building … The Smith and M2M appear to be safe.
However, the owners of NY Copy & Printing had to vacate their home here after 22 years, as we first reported.
The owners told us the that the building's new landlord wouldn't continue their lease. Fortunately, NY Copy found a home on East Seventh Street.
