You can close the book on the long-empty plot of land at 397-401 E. Eighth St. There have been plans for the space near Avenue D going back 10-plus years.
Now the 9-story residential building that has been rising here is ready to launch sales...(turns out this is a condo building, not rental as we had originally heard).
The building's address is 399, which is why it now has the rather awkward name of THREE99OnEIGHTH.
Now here are details about the units via Citi Habitats:
Developed by 399 E8 Development LLC, residences at THREE99 are designed to a high standard. All apartments include oak hardwood floors, floor-to-ceiling windows and in-unit washer/dryers. Most apartments also come complete with private balconies or gardens.
The homes’ open kitchens feature solid-surface countertops, porcelain tile and Carrara marble backsplashes and a full suite of stainless steel appliances — including dishwasher. Baths at THREE99 come in a wide variety of contemporary finishes. All are complete with custom ceramic tile, soaking tubs and European-style vanities and fixtures.
THREE99 provides residents the latest in-demand amenities — including a state-of-the-art fitness center, billiards lounge, pet spa and virtual doorman system. The building also offers a refrigerated package receiving area, bike storage and individual storage rooms. Residents and their guests will enter the building via a grand lobby area with eye-catching chandelier and soothing ‘green wall.’ Great for entertaining, THREE99’s common roof deck is complete with lounge-style seating, lush green lawn areas and skyline views.
A one-bedroom, one-bathroom unit starts at $685,000 ... a two-bedroom, one-bathroom unit asks $960,000... the top home here is the three-bedroom, three-bathroom penthouse at $4.9 million.
And here are a few renderings of the model home...
