Rentals at recently renovated 205 Avenue A upwards of $9,000



The rentals at the now two-floors-taller 205 Avenue A hit the market yesterday… here's how Icon Realty is describing the dorm rooms units:

All apartments are newly renovated featuring: bleached-plank hardwood floors, recessed lighting, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, cherry wood cabinets, crown and baseboard moldings, with marble bathrooms.

The prices range from $5,695 a month for three bedrooms to (gulp!) $9,200 for a five (convertible six!) bedroom unit. This particular apartment includes an 800-square-foot "private patio."

So far, the only photos accompanying the apartment listings are of the mini washer and dryer.



205 is the work of developer Terrence Lowenberg's Icon Realty and architect Ramy Issac … this project seems quite similar to another recent joint venture — 326-328 E. Fourth St., where there was a six-bedroom apartment listed for $8,000.

The retail space here is on the market for $10,000.

Is the under-renovation 205 Avenue A already too tall?

What's the point of tricking out the apartment only to rent it to a pack of Dudes and Bros? They'll just destroy it and move on.

There is a breaking point in how much rent a person / couple will pay until it far exceeds a mortgage payment on an apartment that they could own. Rents at this range suggest more transient "neighbors" and pads built for wealthy college kids. To the designers of this place congratulations for filling it with as many suburban "design icons" like "granite counter tops, stainless steel app... and the circa 2003 favorite "cherry wood cabinets".

Hopefully that butt ugly grey color is primer.

Wow. This place is going to be packed with college students. Is there a limit to how many people you can cram into an apartment? I feel for the neighbors, though it's a win for Empire Biscuit. Those bros will be hungry after a night out drinking!

Sorry, but I'm glad it's not another warren of tacky little apartments. And I'm even more grateful that the developer stayed true to the character of the block and didn't erect another garish Karl Fischer 6-story glass and brick disaster.

Btw Empire Biscuit can eat my fuck! Overpriced douches! They are the worst and are among this new trend of lame hipster rich kids opening places from daddy's money in the neighborhood (ie: The Beagle, Maiden Lane, etc etc). Then they've been here for 6 months and think they are the all knowing ambassadors of the East Village. Big middle finger to you all! Fail!

Agree with 1:57 pm. One thing I like about going to this blog is to see the comments and know that I am not alone with some of my sentiments. The arrogance that most of these transplants exercise are beyond contemptible.

What's the law, no more than four unrelated people in a residence? Wonder if Jimmy Carter know what's happened to the neighborhood where he and Rosalyn once volunteered with Habitat for Humanity.

I'm a transplant and I won't lie; it looked better before.

But, maybe, just maybe people posting here could think about the bigger picture. Perhaps this is indicative of a much more undesirable future ahead for our city. Get off your computers and find a way to support your idea of what this community should be like in the future. You do have a lot of passion, and that could be directed a lot more productively !

There's just too many pussies now thinking they are East Village veterans and shit! Fuck you and you know who you are! Get some real street cred you cunts. Go do you Artisanal Bitter some where else bitch! Go have your $25 cheese plate so your lame place can get a liquor license somewhere else! Fuck Off you twats! You are lame, inauthentic and you know it and you act like you're tough guys but the first time that somebody smacks you in the face, you'd call the police! Bitches!
