Full reveal at 287 E. Houston St. (aka 287/LES)


[Saturday]

Workers removed the scaffolding and construction netting from 287 E. Houston St. late last week... providing a full reveal of the 11-floor condoplex — called 287/LES — here between Clinton and Suffolk...


[Friday]

As previously reported, the 120-foot-tall luxury building features 27 residences ... with two to four units on each story, including two duplexes on the first and second floors and a penthouse duplex on the top two floors. The units start at $1.175 million.

Here's more about 287/LES via Corcoran:

287/LES is the most successful ground-up new development on Houston Street. An Italian-inspired presence resonates outside with an elegant façade comprised of blackened steel, black textured brick and oversized floor-to-ceiling windows.

Amenities include a part-time doorman complemented by virtual doorman technology, a full-time superintendent, a fitness center, bicycle storage, private storage for purchase, supplemental commercial-grade laundry room, and a landscaped common rooftop terrace with outdoor kitchen.

And the final product...

The lot here previously housed a tax-preparation business; a landscaping business also shared part of the property.

We are ruining the look of our city with every new structure that is built. What an eyesore! Charcoal black with tinted dark windows. Does Darth Vader live there? This place will make me sick to my stomach for the rest of the 21st century.

Better than the buildings it replaced.

Look at the buidlings in almost any major historical city from Stockholm to Paris, Amsterdam, and Rome. You don't see this dark brick being used in such a monochromatic way. Even the black painted buildings in Amsterdam have large white window frames to create contrast. These Houston St. buildings are all low contrast, depressing looking monoliths. Welcome to the Horridor.

Great another overpriced Condo where apartments are going for over One million dollars....in a neighborhood where the majority of people are living on some sort of government assistance either receiving Section 8 rent subsidies or living in housing projects which are just a few blocks from this place. It is incredible that you have all these young white Millennial's moving here who seem to be the only ones who can afford these wonderful new buildings when you still have so many people living in poverty in this now "trendy" Lower East Side neighborhood.

Looked up what a one bedroom would cost there. One is listed for $1,525,000 and is under contract, looks to be about 650 square feet of livable space. The total monthly payment with a 80% mortgage 20% down is $8309.
