Ian Schrager's 215 Chrystie now in the condo-building phase

Well, I've mostly been following along with the developments at Ian Schrager's hotel and condo development at 215 Chrystie St. just below East Houston via Curbed and BoweryBoogie.

Walked by the construction site the other day and hello!



When completed, the Herzog & de Meuron-designed building will be 28 stories, featuring 370 hotel rooms via Schrager's Public Hotel brand, topped off by 11 ultra-luxury condos, which appear to be going up now ...



The final product will have a real, authentic street-art vibe...



Oh! Well, you can see the 215 model inside the Schrager Sales Office in the Death Star/51 Astor Place...



According to Streeteasy, several of the residences are in contract. And several units are still up for grabs, including PH3 which is selling for $18.75 million... and includes top-of-the-line everything (kinda just guessing with that price) with 360-degree views that you can take in from your John Pawson custom-designed concrete tub.



Simply toss a piece a plywood over the tub and outfit with some table felt for when the gang comes over later for poker night.

It won't be long before another taller residence will be build with exposed bathtub across the street so enjoy it while you can.

I don't care what anybody says, I want to bathe in that tub.

Kills the character of the neighborhood? Could be the deathblow. This is the type of building that changes the character of a neighborhood for good. A Deathstar for the LES/ Bowery arwa. Might as well be in downtown Dallas.

There are few things in life that are better than a bathtub in the kitchen; I speak from experience. Not sure it's worth $18.75 mil, though.

Plywwod? For that price I'm sure you could at least afford some slate..

Who are the fools who purchase these places? $18 million - I don't care WHAT the view is, you're still living on Chrystie Street!

PLUS you'll be living on top of nearly 400 hotels rooms - so no privacy, lots of transient action. For $18 million one can do much, much better in NYC.

PS: The whole oval-tub-in-the-middle-of-the-room thing is already OVER, but plenty of trendy people are going to be stuck with one for a long time!

That isn't a living room. It's the bathroom. Tubs belong in bathrooms.

Liz Christy Garden is about to lose a bunch of sunlight from its southern exposure. Funny, with how hard they fought to keep the Avalon building low-ish, you'd have thought that they'd have taken a stand on this big eye-sore.
