The $20k penthouses that rose from the ZP Auto Repair Shop on Lafayette

[EVG photo from 2011]

We've been following along with the developments at the corner of Lafayette and Great Jones for seven or so years now.

The corner was previously home to ZP Auto Repair Shop, who was able to secure a new space in 2011 in Brooklyn. (Jeremiah Moss noted at Vanishing New York that, despite brisk business, the shop lost its lease and closed last October.)

Now the rentals in the new building at 11 Great Jones (aka 372 Lafayette) are officially on the market.

Curbed had the first look last week:

The 11 apartments ... start at $11,750/month for a 2BR/2.5BA, and ask up to $21,000/month for a 3BR/4.5BA penthouse with a private terrace. "11 Great Jones Street was conceived as a response to the demand for high-end rental residences in the sought-after neighborhood," Noam Shemel, founder of developer Kano Properties, said in a statement.

Here are more details via broker Corcoran re: the penthouses:

The two Duplex Penthouses are among the finest in Downtown Manhattan, with soaring 11-foot High Ceilings and generous Private Terraces with Custom Outdoor Kitchens. PH-A covers 1,900 square feet with 850 square feet of outdoor space spread over Two Terraces; the Upper Roof Terrace has an amazing Outdoor Kitchen area with a Wolf Gas Grill and Marble Wet Bar, while a Lower Terrace has a Weber Grill.

Both penthouses are comprised of three Bedrooms and three Baths, along with two half-Baths and a Lounge Area with a Custom Wet Bar. A direct Keyed-Elevator opens to these spectacular Lofts featuring only the finest of Custom Finishes, including 7” White Oak Floors, Floor-to-Ceiling Windows with bright, Eastern Exposures, and Extra High 10’5” – 11’ Ceilings. Each Designer Kitchen is fully-equipped with Gaggenau Appliances, including 5-burner Cooktops and Dishwashers, REXA Custom Cabinetry and Carrara Marble backsplashes and countertops individually hand-cut in Italy.

There was hardware store on the south corner of the old building, as I recall. Is that correct? Unfortunately the pictures don't show it.

I wish someone respond to the need for affordable housing.

Not sure about this particular corner ... but the M&D Shapiro True Value Hardware is still there (for now) a block down on Lafayette and Bleecker...

Clearly, the need for unbridled, unspeakable luxury trumps the need for affordable housing.
