Here's a follow-up to yesterday's post about the new residential building at 438 E. 12th St., which was based on an article published over the weekend at the Times.
Reps for developer Douglas Steiner sent us more information yesterday.
So via the EVG inbox...
Developer Steiner NYC has begun sales at Steiner East Village, a seven-story, 82-unit, full-service residential condominium development, which will span the block from 11th to 12th Street along Avenue A. Douglas Elliman’s Fredrik Eklund and John Gomes of the Eklund Gomes Team are handling the exclusive sales and marketing for the project.
“It took us seven years to find the right site in what is our favorite neighborhood in Manhattan,” said Douglas C. Steiner, Chairman of Steiner NYC. “The East Village is authentic, bohemian, and diverse, with a rich history of groundbreaking art and music, a plethora of community gardens and quirky mom and pop stores, bustling nightlife, and an abundance of unpretentious, top-flight restaurants.”
Residents will enjoy an amenity package that will be best-in-class for the East Village: a highly-designed 50’ indoor pool; 2,000-square foot fitness center; sauna; steam room; parking; resident library with fireplace; bike storage; pet spa; children’s playroom; and 4,000 square foot common roofdeck with stunning, protected views.
Steiner East Village, designed by S9 Architects, compliments the historic East Village neighborhood in scale and style, with an aged brick façade and interwoven greenery. The building’s classic, loft-style interiors, designed by Paris Forino, offer ten-foot-plus ceiling heights, oversized windows, exquisite marble finishes and wide plank floors, top-of-the-line appliances, and plentiful light and air. The development will include one-to-four bedroom condos and penthouses.
The building’s main entrance will be located on tree-lined East 12th Street. Prices start at $1.1 million.
The Steiner East Village website has more details, such as on the four-bedroom penthouse with 1,364 square feet of terraces that's asking $11.25 million.
And here are some more renderings of the 82-unit complex that will include 10,000 square feet of retail space on Avenue A between East 11th Street and East 12th Street.
Steiner bought the former Mary Help of Christians property in 2012 from the Archdiocese of New York for $41 million. During the summer of 2013, workers demolished the church, school and rectory.

Wow, what a contrast between the last, a photo of the neighborhood, and those other sterile images.
This made me throw-up in my morning coffee.
“The East Village is (was an) authentic, bohemian, and diverse, with a rich history of groundbreaking art and music, a plethora of community gardens and (once upon a time had) quirky mom and pop stores, (and now only has a) bustling nightlife (if you consider sports bars nightlife), and an abundance of (gimmicky foodie driven overprice eateries which have displace the last) unpretentious, top-flight restaurants.”
You gotta love the comment about the diverse, bohemian neighborhood. Who's kidding who here...
Last time I checked 'bohemians' couldn't afford million dollar real estate.
So many feelings - don't know whether to laugh or cry.
Bad karma for all associated with-
"Napoleon complex" is a term describing a theoretical condition occurring in people of short stature. It is characterized by overly-aggressive or domineering social behavior, and carries the implication that such behaviour is compensatory for the subject's stature.
So this was sent to the EVG inbox? By an automated email campaign? Or to directly add insult to injury? As anon 8:34 points out, this is quite hypocritical, they laud the neighborhood for things maybe like a flea market but fail to point out they ruined the neighborhood by taking away something like a flea market. Wankers.
Welcome To Pigsville.
Hmmm...I just gotta say it — Is it really a good investment right now to buy an $11 million dollar condo that sits three blocks from the rising East River? Have they seen the new climate change reports? I mean, I'm just a regular person, but do these people hold a mortgage or do they just pay cash?
May not need to hope for bad karma; it just might bite 'em in the ass anyway. I fear the neighborhood just got TOTALLY MORE OBNOXIOUS (AS IF THAT'S EVEN POSSIBLE). Enjoy the carnival, folks, nothing but candy, fried ice cream, rainbow-burned bagel madness.
@11:53... every time I think the nabe could not get TMO(AITEP), it does! It does.
Ummmm the only saving grace on this one (no pun intended, Virgin M) is that the postal service showed up in style in that picture in a van from the 1800s. Makes me miss the wizards at the 14th street post office.
I still want to know if this project received the tax abatement that it was originally granted because it was suppose to be an 80/20 rentral
At the rate it's going they should be done in another couple of weeks, and in need of a sales office. Why not contact Tower Brokerage for leasing options on Avenue A.
The description for that shitbox reads like something Bret Easton Ellis would write for Patrick Bateman in a lost chapter of American Psycho where it's Patrick before or after his stint at Pierce & Pierce (I can't decide which would be funnier - probably after cuz that means he'd have been fired from P&P.)
You have to be a damn fool to buy something there for that kind of money.
Or be using your Chinese Daddy's money.
