I had a chance to see one of the penthouses a month or so back when they had a random "open house" on a Sunday. They are smoking crack if they think they can get $3.6M for the space I saw - it's a two storey space with an OK sized terrace overlooking noisy 14th st. and with no view (faces north). The living room is quite small, staircase cramped, upstairs 2 minimally sized bedrooms with little storage. They claim it's 2000 sq feet with a 350 sg ft terrace, but it certainly didn't feel that big.Finishes were nice, but not outstanding - even for new construction, I'd say it was worth $1.5-2M and I really don't see people with that to spend choosing to be right on the intersection.But I'm sure I'll be proved wrong....
And to think someone actually sat down and designed this banal piece of crap? Do they even try anymore?
