There's now a teaser website for the three condos that are being built at the former Congregation Mezritch Synagogue at 415 E. Sixth St.
Unfortunately, there's not much info there… except for the slogan: "History reimagined … For modern living" and some contact info.
And there's a rendering of sorts… which also shows the new top floor…
At the time when the condo plans were first made available several years back, some neighbors and preservationists were concerned about the size and scope of the new level.
As for pricing, the sign that arrived outside the under-renovation building notes that the condos start at $2.95 million…
As previously cut-n-pasted: The landmarked building between Avenue A and First Avenue was reportedly in disrepair and the congregation's population had dwindled. Synagogue leaders signed a 99-year lease with East River Partners worth some $1.2 million. The synagogue will retain some space on the ground floor for their use.
