When we last checked in on 532 E. Fifth St. in the fall, the newish eco-friendly apartment building between Avenue A and Avenue B, we were admiring the $13,000 apartment that came with its own THREE LEVEL PRIVATE PLANTED ZEN GARDEN (in the all-cap style of the listing).
As nice as all this sounded, the accompanying images were seemingly (and hilariously!) taken with the camera on the fisheye setting (Walleye Vision!)
Now TOWN is the broker, and the apartments have just been relisted... and they are (slightly) reduced. Here are the two prime rentals via TOWN:
• Penthouse #5R, renting for $9,900/month, is a 3 bed, 3 bath and features a private terrace, as well as a private roof deck. The space includes a large living room, gourmet chef's kitchen with a breakfast bar and in-unit washer/dryer, with access to a private terrace. The upper level offers a second living room and access to a private roof deck. Reclaimed oak wood flooring throughout, with American slate floors in the kitchen and bathrooms.
• Garden #1R, on the market for $10,000/month, has 3 beds and 1.5 baths and features a private, three-level, 860-square-foot Zen garden, an open chef’s kitchen and dining room with southern exposures overlooking the garden. The garden-level apartment features a flex living room with stone floors, an in-unit washer and dryer and access to the garden.
And the accompanying photos (these are the garden apartment) are no longer wonky.
...and the penthouse...
No word if you can hear the patrons of the Ace Bar from up here.
