Condos hit the market at former East 13th Street dumping ground



The new residences at 536 E. 13th St. arrived on the market this week... the 6-floor building between Avenue A and Avenue B features 11 homes, which range in price from $1.3 to $1.6 million for around 830-860 feet and one bedroom, according to Streeteasy. (Three of the listed homes are already in contract.)

Here's more on the units via Town:

The condominium consists of 11 residences, with a full floor unit at the ground level and only two homes per floor on the upper five stories. The ground floor residence offers 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, plus home office, and a generous fully landscaped rear yard designed by Terrain Landscape Architects. Floors two through five consist of eight one bedroom residences with windowed home offices, and the sixth floor residences include two full bedrooms.

Each of the rear homes include balconies, while the fifth floor front and sixth floor units include spacious private roof terraces; all with quintessential New York City skyline views. Additionally, each residence includes a dedicated storage room in the basement.



As for the individual units, back to Town:

From the interiors, the beautiful windows allow natural light to wash the entirety of the clean and elegant living spaces within. Each light filled home is enhanced by the feeling of openness and clarity provided by wide plank oak floors, custom doorways and high ceilings of more than nine feet.

The kitchens and bathrooms offer subtle details, rich materials, and high quality fixtures and equipment. Bianco Dolomite marble and mirrored glass meld seamlessly into the walls of each bathroom; while top of the line fixtures, including Toto and Zuma provide refined comfort. Each kitchen is punctuated by function.





You can see for yourself during an open house Sunday afternoon at 2.

The lot had been home to a stalled development for years... until this project kicked into gear during 2013.

I didn't know luxury apartments looked the same as Stuy Town apartments.

I am sorry to break it to you but these apts are more like 650 sf than 850 sf when I look at the floor plans. Maybe I am miscalculating it, but try figuring it out from the floor plan for yourself.

The 3 year plus construction of this building is finally finished. My place is faces the back of it and I just hope the new neighbors are not party animals as my neighbors at 331 E 12th street are. This building for the sake of the new home owners has noise reducing window and balcony doors.

Over $1 mil for half a floor of an ugly institutional brick box. But the kitchen is punctuated by function!

Looks like entertaining means 3 people at the suburban kitchen bar or a cozy duo at the little cafe table in the living room. The original plans for this building was full floor apartments each with 2 fireplaces, looks like a lot has been scaled back for bigger profits or they mis-calculated what luxury really means in the EV in 2016. The worst part of this is single or couples at best living here meaning a college student living in a condo paid for by the parents which means a lot of woos from the balconies and garden space, ugh.

The price per square foot is pretty bad. But even still, the people sneering down their nose at these places must be some pretty high rollers. Does your place look like that?

@Anon 1:26 - My place in Penn South looks like this (interiors). Anyone who pays these prices is an idiot.

Where is the bedroom? Not sure about the wide oak floors. Might makes sense if this were a refurbished farmhouse. There is only so much you can do with railroad flat apartments. I should know, I lived in one for an eternity. Lipstick on a pig.

Yep, more like 650 sq. feet - but I guess they figure anyone who'd drop that kind of money to live on that block isn't good with math or money.

Yes fortunately my place is a lot nicer. These building waited too long to finish this building. There are hundreds of new condos being built just within blocks of this one all of which have amenities unlike this place. They screwed up big splitting the floors and making 1 bedroom apartments. These place will be for NYU students and owned by those students parents no doubt.

The listing forgot to mention that this building is in the "heart of the East Village". Now none of the apartments will sell. darn it.

Good eye. Indeed, they are including the store room in the basement. Seriously it's a fact.
