[Updated] People apparently really want to live in The Robyn

Back in late May, we received a news release announcing that Miron Properties was hired to lease The Robyn, the incoming 33-unit rental at 316 E. Third St. between Avenue C and Avenue D.

We received a follow-up announcement from Miron reps stating that they have rented 29 of the 33 apartments ... with move ins starting July 1, pending the city issuing the Temporary Certificate of Occupancy.

Not bad on all the rentals considering the building isn't even finished ... so these leases are being signed without people seeing the actual apartments.

Apartments at the Karl Fischer-designed building range in price from $2,100 for studios, $2,495 and up for one bedrooms and $3,375 and up for the duplex penthouses.

The elevator building features a roof deck, storage units, bike storage and a pet spa, among other amenities.

And what's up with that name, The Robyn?

Turns out that the building is named after the wife of Jona Rechnitz, founder and president of JSR Capital, the real-estate development and management company that bought the property several years ago.

Updated 6/25
The folks from Miron provided incorrect information about the name. It is just a generic name the developers came up with for the building.

And apparently there are no limits on either stupidity or the money flowing into the city.

If they are so fully rented why are they bothering to let anybody know about it. I would think they would spend their time doing something useful, like publicizing something that needs attention. I suspect there is more to this story.

The owners could have been a little more creative and added the last name Byrd

Strangely, the building is still vacant. There are a few apartments with moving boxes etc. piled up inside but no tenants as of yet. Must be some delay in finishing the building - it's been this way for almost two months now.
