The three luxury residences at the former Congregation Mezritch Synagogue at 415 E. Sixth St. between Avenue A and First Avenue hit the market back in December, as Curbed first noted.
The homes range in price from $2.95 million (second floor) to $4.4 million for the duplex penthouse, which has two private terraces.
All three are still available, according to listings at Streeteasy, which notes open houses on Sunday. (The listings arrived only this week at Streeteasy.)
Anyway, I hadn't visited this project in some time... so there are more images of the residences ... as well as details on what you get the for the $$$.
Here's copy via Streeteasy for the penthouse...:
The Duplex Penthouse, at 2,564 SF, has been designed to embrace indoor-outdoor living, with two expansive terraces totaling 813 SF. On its light-filled top floor, the grand open-plan kitchen is the centerpiece, connecting dining and living areas that extend outward to the terraces, providing great flow for entertaining. The lower floor offers privacy and tranquility for the master suite, secondary bedrooms and a spacious den.
415 East 6th Street ... represents the culture and creative movement only found in the East Village. These three one-of-a-kind condominium residences are steps from the diverse boutiques and restaurants located throughout the East Village Historic District. Two floor-through residences and a duplex penthouse have been designed within a historic 1910 neoclassical limestone faade that features ornate architectural details and original stained glass windows. They offer the perfect synthesis of historic charm and modern elegance.
Additional features: Keyed elevator, 4" wide white oak flooring, Bertazzoni range, Liebherr refrigerator, Bosch dishwasher, built in Sharp under-counter microwave, Bosch 24 washer/dryer, and an individually controlled, energy efficient heating and cooling system...

And the usual background... the synagogue — active here since 1910 — had reportedly fallen on hard times, "with a dwindling membership and few resources to maintain the building," as The New York Times noted. Previous plans called for the demolition of the building. Those plans never materialized, and a new developer, East River Partners, emerged and proposed the current arrangement.
As part of the current agreement, the developers are providing at least $20,000 annually to the congregation "for the next 198 years ... East River is also giving the synagogue a $180,000 'fit-out allowance' for the synagogue to design and rebuild the sanctuary and other spaces, like offices or meeting spaces in the basement."
