The broker bunting has arrived on the scaffolding at 64 E. First St., where luxury condos are a-rising on the corpse of La Vie between First Avenue and Second Avenue …
There's a teaser site now for the six, full-floor residences. No pricing, but a few details:
Generous full-floor residences
2 bedrooms/2.5 bathrooms
Deep-set casement windows
Private outdoor terraces for each residence
There's also some new brandage action for the building… apparently this address is located in (heh) "The Bowery District" … (sounds more glamorous than Midtown South, aka MiSo?)…
Anyway, eventually, as the rendering on the plywood shows, the building will eventually look like … oh, never mind!
Here it is for real…
[Official for real rendering]
Also! Bonus Crane Operation here on East First Street coming up this Sunday!

La Vie has closed; neighbors rejoice
Former La Vie space on East First Street will be demolished

Here lies the remains of La Vie
Here's a look at the new condos coming to East 1st Street
This is what the new condo building at 64 E. 1st St. will really look like
EV Grieve are you sure you are not using the same exact rendering for every new building in the past 2 years?
At least they didn't say "in the heart of the East Village" which could be a sign the EV is now considered down market (again).
Eventually the building will look like every other featureless piece of bland, Soviet-style Politburo crap that's been hastily thrown up (or thrown up on) since the real estate insanity commenced. And here I thought Moscow on the Hudson was a movie, not a comment on what the architecture is turning us into.
Real estate people being laughably out of touch is simply par for the course.
Gojira, So-called Soviet-style architecture is actually from this country. See here.
Anon. 3:34, I know the story of the Municipal Building, but Stalin recreating an American design in Moscow is not what I meant. Stalinist architecture is based on Neoclassicism and Mediterranean styles; Soviet architecture, on the other hand, is a completely different animal - basically cheap, hastily-constructed Cubist or Brutalist apartment blocks, big, basic, utilitarian, free of ornamentation, charm or imagination. *That's* what we're getting.
