Demo time for East 13th Street garages that will yield to luxury condos
Construction of the incoming condos Thirteen East + West entered the next phase yesterday … as workers started to erect the sidewalk bridge at 436 and 442 E. 13th St. between Avenue A and First Avenue …
The two garages that were sold earlier this year on this block will be demolished to make way for six-story buildings that will house floor-though condos. The penthouses at each building will have their own private garages and roof decks. Pricing will start at $2.3 million; $3.4 million for the penthouses via celebrity broker Ryan Serhant.

Back in June, the developers unveiled the luxury condos with a street-art competition that saw murals go up on the soon-to-be-demolished structures. The mural theme: transience. According to the news release announcing the competition: "Buildings go up, buildings come down and art too is victim to the vicissitudes of time."
