[The current No. 250]
Last fall, Red Square, the 13-floor residential complex at 250 E. Houston St. between Avenue A and Avenue B, changed hands for a reported $100 million.
A letter to residents noted some "very exciting changes" coming to the building, which was apparently dropping the Red Square moniker. Among other things, the common areas would be refurbished.
There are currently eight available units (ranging from $2,900 to $4,500) on Streeteasy.
The renderings that accompany the listings show a luxurified version of its current self... with more high-end retail than what's currently in place...
... and another view of the entrance... with some awesome scalies...
Not sure if this is really the future or just wishful thinking.
The building opened in June 1989. Workers removed the building's statue of Lenin from the roof in September.
