Time to rent at EVGB, where studios ('lofts') start at $3,695



Extell Development's EVGB — the "East Village's Greatest Building" — is now renting at 510 E. 14th St. and Avenue A.

The listings went live on Monday, as Curbed first noted.

In total, there are 110 market-rate rentals here. And "market rate" is apparently $3,695 for a large studio (called "lofts" at the EVGB website). The largest units, with three bedrooms, are asking $12,425.

Here's the description of a two-bedroom unit ($7,455) via Streeteasy:

Make yourself at home in this north facing split two bedroom, two bathroom residence. 412 features generous living space, multiple walk-in closets, and an in-unit Bosch washer/dryer. for entertaining and relaxing. The huge open kitchen is outfitted with Miele and Bosch appliances, Cosentino Silestone Quartz countertops and backsplash, and unique wood and glass cabinets with gunmetal pulls. The four-fixture master bathroom includes a walk-in shower with blackened steel and fluted glass door and double vanity. Both bathrooms feature Porcelanosa tile and Kohler and Wetstyle fixtures. This apartment is finished with hardwood white oak flooring.

Each unit also includes an Alexa home interface for easy Alexa-ing. ("Alexa, how much is $12,425 divided by eight?")

Here's a view of the back of the building, showing the various balconies and the garden units...



Building amenities include an indoor saltwater pool, a bi-level fitness center, a children’s playroom, and a 19,000-square-foot roof deck with bocce, a putting green, a yoga lawn, a wet bar, fire pits and more things to perhaps inspire 13th Street residents who live behind here to call 311.



As you can see, the EVGB site is working hard to appeal to would-be renters... (The "Mmm ... carbs" cartoon cupcake, like)...



EVGB has an Instragram account too... the first one is a puzzler: "East Village will have you Going Back for more again, and again, and again...donuts are just the beginning of what the vibrant neighborhood has to offer."

Anyway!




Move ins at EVGB start in April.

And as previously reported, part of the retail space in this building will house the small-format Target store. Which someone already tagged.

I'm curious how come the listing does not mention you will experience living on a huge construction site of an underground train until the end of 2020. No word about "sounds of 7 days a week reversing dump trucks "? "Enjoy the fumes of stand still traffic because NYC DOT decided not to extend the bus way east of 3rd Avenue when the L train shuts down "? Excavation and drills from 6 AM to 10 PM ?

$3700 for a fucking studio apartment? Only in NY kids. Only in New York.

Why is everything marketed for the millennial set like there the only generational group looking to rent an apartment? I'm not sure models with man buns, retro new wave kitschy women at the beach and morning show "how to decorate for a 4 year olds birthday party" will get people in this building. My guess is these apartments will set a new hight per square foot in lower Manhattan and the amenities will be underused since millennials don't socialize beyond their iPhones.

LOL what a scam

I can't imagine many families moving into what sounds like a glorified set of MTV's old "Real World" series. That children’s playroom will become the Beer Pong Room before long

I cant wait to NEVER LIVE HERE.

@8:33am: Yep! There's no way this place is going to have families with young children AND the woo-woo party bro's.

PS: IMO, anyone who'd pay that kind of money to rent in that location should be sent directly to a locked mental ward, b/c they're clearly insane.

Alexa laughs at anyone who will rent here.

Reading this gave me a seizure. The marketing for this and the expenses that went into furnishing and fixtures is just certifiably insane and a living parody of itself.

12,000 a month? there is no hope for this generation or humanity that there is a market for this mindless frivolous spending.

19,000 square foot roof deck, wet bar, backyard and balconies? Think there's going to be any noise issues for surrounding neighbors?

Something tells me these are going to be more money laundering pied-e-terres.

My condolences EV

Note 1: Market rate rentals are listed as net effective rent with 2 months free rent, so expect a large bump up in rent the second year.
Note 2: The living and bedrooms are small.
Note 4: 50 subsidized apts is great, but whoever gets them initially will hold onto them and there will be very little turnover. The subsidized rate is very low.

Doesn't mean I have to live in one too!

Almost as bad as the 250 sq.ft condo on Mott Street asking $499,000!

I like the "in-unit Bosch washer/dryer. for entertaining and relaxing."

You don't even need a tv, you can watch the washer/dryer!

I am already wondering how far the noise is going to carry from that roof deck. The people on 12th and 13th aren't going to be happy and neither are the people across the way in Sty Town.

Has anyone who applied for an affordable unit heard anything? And for anyone who applied, if you are picked, will you take one of these apartments? I applied and haven't heard back yet, but I am torn as to what I would do. I probably don't have to worry given the odds of getting chosen are low!

How I have managed to survive for so long without a backsplash, I have no friggin' clue. Really, I had no idea I was so bereft!

Just the other day I was saying to a friend, "You know, friend, I'd love to score a north facing apartment on 14th Street. I imagine sipping my morning coffee, staring at the red brick dirge known as Stuy Town, and listening to the comforting screams of the mentally ill who run into oncoming traffic. Yeah, that would be living the dream." And now I can.

I was struck by the same thing- clearly no one to read or edit!

The money laundering aspect, and the place to run to when you're being investigated for corruption back home, are the most likely residents. $12,000 a month is $144,000 a year, and you shouldn't spend more than a third of your income on rent. So - you really want to live with the L train construction when you can afford that? Where did they find those donuts? And you're not in Dist.2 for schools, either.

I don't see anything about backup generators or flood proofing for the next time there’s a blackout, or when the East RIver floods the area again, but at least there’s a roof deck that helicopters can land on to pick up the residents when they get bored af staring at their backsplashes in the dark.

Love my East Village rent stabilized apt. I get to live in the greatest neighborhood, of the greatest city in the world & afford it. ❤

You've got to be kidding me.

Then again, I overheard two young men on the street the other day. The first one says to the second one, in a total deadpan voice, "Yeah, he's just getting tired of paying $30K a month in rent."

What planet am I on?
