Starting in the spring of 2014, the 12-floor building at 55 Third Ave. (aka 200 E. 11th St.) went through a top-to-bottom renovation, emerging looking less like a 1970s-era dorm.
Now, it looks like a 2016-era dorm here near the NYU student housing along this Third Avenue corridor.
In any event! The building is now on the market.
As you may recall, The Benchmark Real Estate Group bought the place in late 2013 for a whopping $57 million.
Now they are asking an even more whopping $65 million for the luxurified building.
Per The Real Deal, who first reported that the 54-unit residential component was for sale:
As part of a gut renovation of the residential portion, the company constructed a three-story building on an adjacent vacant lot that now serves as a lobby and amenity space including a fitness center, yoga/meditation room and massage room. The overhaul included an upgrade to the exterior façade and windows and the addition of condo-like features to the apartments.
The building... has more than 53,000 square feet of residential space, not counting the 4,000-square-foot addition.
Rents for the 37 one-bedroom apartments average $5,600 a month, while the nine two-bedrooms and eight studios average $7,500 and $3,600 per month, respectively.
