Since fall 2011, the building that houses 7A on the corner of East Seventh Street and Avenue A has been undergoing renovations... including converting some existing commercial/studio space to residential use and reconstructing the existing penthouses.
Workers started removing the construction gear from the building on Aug. 21.
And now, two of the penthouse units up there hit the rental market yesterday.
Per the Corcoran listing:
Enter from your own private landing into this sunfilled corner loft with direct Empire State and Thompkins [sic] Square Park views from every room. This boutique Pre-War elevator building has been masterfully transformed into 1,850 square foot full-floor 3 bedroom 2.5 baths homes offering condo level finishes, 11 Floor-to-Ceiling windows, and exposed brick throughout. Open kitchen with Viking range, Bosch dishwasher, and poured concrete coutertops. Individual climate control in every room. Gracious 12' x 25' master suite with walk-in closet, marble baths with radiant floor heating, separate laundry room.
And here's a floor plan for you:
The two listed units are going for $16,995 and, for poorer people, $14,995.
The view you'll get for the $$$$....
Public records show that the University of the Streets sold the building to Park Corner Development, LLC in September 2011 for $5 million.
