'Just-renovated' A Building penthouse on resale market with a little off the top

Over at the A Building, the Party Palace on 13th Street ... a penthouse just went on the market. According to Streeteasy, the owner bought it in March 2008 for $1,909,218. It's now listed for $1,895,000.

Well, here are a few views....

And the listing:

This just-renovated south-facing penthouse with terrace at The A Building features wonderful sun and sky, 11 foot ceilings, and exceptional contemporary finishes, including LV Bespoke 6 inch wide oak plank floors, Somfi motorized shades, and a B&W surround sound system in the living room with a second zone for the terrace. The ideal layout offers space for a large dining area plus several seating areas, great for entertaining. Both the living room and master bedroom open directly out onto the sunny, 250 SF south-facing terrace, perfect for accommodating dinner guests or just for stumbling straight out of bed to enjoy the flowers and soak up the sun. *Please note, there is a special assessment of $145.98 per month through December of 2011.


Odd that a three-year-old building would feature a "just-renovated" penthouse. Or not, as The Real Deal pointed out last year in an article titled "Massive headaches at the A Building." As TRD reported: "Faulty construction has afflicted roughly a quarter of the A Building's 96 units with serious leakage and mold issues."

In any event, see the penthouse for yourself this Sunday during the open house from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Hey, and bring your swimsuit!

If you don't care for this unit, there are six other homes for sale in the A Building, per Streeteasy.
