Back in July crews finished adding 3 new floors in the total remake of 31-33 Second Ave., which is now a charmless grey box. Perhaps to compensate for the bland exterior here between East Second Street and East First Street, Ben Shaoul's rental building is sporting an upscale name — The East Luxe.
And listings for the units arrived on the market yesterday. According to Streeteasy, there are eight active listings for the 2- and 3-bedroom apartments with an average piece of $5,200.
Here's a look at a listing via Platinum:

Building features, Elevator and landscaped roofdeck. Pets allowed.
There aren't any shots of the apartments online just yet, so we don't know if the inside fared better than the outside.
Meanwhile, BoweryBoogie previously reported that a Petco-branded store is set for the retail space.
