As we first reported back in June, the 10-story rental building at 189 Avenue C at East 12th Street that debuted in early 2011 would be converting to condos.
The building has been rebranded, and The Calyx — with the slogan "Choose what you C" — made its debut several weeks ago... with sales and marketing courtesy of Ryan Serhant and Nest Seekers International. (This is the sixth development in the East Village that Serhant's team is representing. His other projects include 100 Avenue A and Thirteen East + West.)
Here's the building description via The Calyx website:
Introducing The Calyx, one of the finest full service condominiums to ever emerge within the colorful maze of streets known the East Village. Built in 2010 and recently converted to luxury living, The Calyx captures the best of old vintage vibes and blends them with modern and stylish living. The building rises 10 stories and sits on Avenue C, an East Village strip lined with tasteful restaurants and cafes and located only a few blocks away from Tompkins Square Park and popular nightlife scenes.
Designed by OTL Enterprises—the same firm whose passion and vision were behind The Blue Building of the Lower East Side—The Calyx offers 35 residences dressed with groomed interiors, a fitness facility, and a rooftop lounge boasting panoramic views of Manhattan. Pairing sophistication with the vibrancy of the East Village, The Calyx is a captivating proposition for first time buyers and veteran real estate investors alike.
The Calyx is for those seeking to capture the energy of an evolving neighborhood, to experience the edge of the city’s past and the shimmering promise of its future.
According to Streeteasy, the prices range from $675,000 for a studio to 1.45 million for a two-bedroom home. Of the nine listed at Streeteasy, seven of the homes are in contract.
There's also retail space available... per the listing, the asking rent is $15,000, with retail, restaurant or gym usage being offered up to potential tenants...
