The rentals for the former Sigmund Schwartz Gramercy Park Chapel arrived on the market yesterday.
The folks at neighborhood favorites Icon Reality are behind the newly six-story structure at 152 Second Ave. between East Ninth Street and East 10th Street. Seems like a long time coming for the building: The demolition work here started back in April 2012.
Streeteasy has 12 listings, ranging from the one-bedroom jobbie for $3,500 to five-bedroom duplexes asking $9,500.
Here's more about the building via the Icon site:
Grand Opening of 152 2nd Avenue. Brand New Luxury Apartments Designed by Paris Forino
All apartments have access to the building's Large Landscaped and Furnished Roof Deck!
All apartments in this Brand New Designer Boutique Building Feature:
Whitewashed Oak Floors
Limed Brick Walls
Intricate Mosaic Tilework
Queen Sized Bedrooms
Washer/Dryers in every unit
Free Storage Lockers
(Not mentioned in the amenities: Being directly across the street from the 13th Step.)
Will be interesting to see how the roof deck goes over with neighbors. The roof deck at Icon's 205 Avenue A is well-known to the NYPD, who, according to one resident, come by "almost every weekend" during Rooftop Rager Season.
Oh, and here are some photos of the units and rooftop via the Icon site...
Meanwhile, the retail space at 152 Second Ave. remains on the market.
