What it will cost to live above the ruins of La Vie in the Bowery District



At the end of October, the teaser site went up for the condos a-rising on 64 E. First St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue. (An area which the developers have dubbed — hey ho! — "The Bowery District.")



Yesterday, pricing and model-home pics (H/T Curbed!) arrived for the residences that sit on the former neighborhood scourge La Vie. And you will be paying a pretty premium to live on the former hookah hotspot. Prices for the two homes now available hover just below and above the $3.3 million mark.

And some blurbage:

An exclusive boutique collection of six full-floor residences with private outdoor terraces in the Bowery District. The Bowery epitomizes both the colorful history and perpetually changing landscape that is New York. 64 East reflects the heritage of this iconic thoroughfare in a forward-thinking, modern design.

And some photos…





And the terrance penthouse…



And, as you may recall, the final product…

So.. where do you watch TV in an apt like that ?

That looks like a flat-screen TV over the conference table, right? You can use it for PowerPoint presentations, too.

the "blurbage" sounds like a lot of word vomit to me.
is that room full of chairs with a couch for interventions?

An exclusive boutique collection of vomit puddles will greet you at the front door in the Bowery District. The Bowery epitomizes the displacement of old drunks with new, more affluent drunks who look forward to keeping you up all night with binge drinking, sex crimes, and other fratastic behavior. 64 East reflects every other new luxury building. Seriously, it's made of glass, it reflects everything.

Most likely there will be no frat parties at this location so I prefer it to building with a revolving door of NYU students.

When it snows, are you expected to shovel it off the roof and onto the sidewalk? Asking for a friend...

Heck no.. The servant will use a snowblower and shoot that shit right over the side... Vrooommm!

And . clean off all the furniture

The terrace is not accurately represented - where are the over-served "guests" who'll be lounging on the furniture, half-heartedly looking for the puke-bucket?

With the rate people get drunk and fall off buildings these days, I'd be more concerned with falling bodies than falling snow.
