Rentals are underway at the all-new 222 E. Seventh St., a building originally thought to be condos here between Avenue B and Avenue C.
As we pointed out previously, the address was the onetime home and studio of famed sculpturist Louise Nevelson. Which explains this building's name — Nevelson House.
Workers first honored her memory by demolishing the previous four-floor building here.

Streeteasy shows seven units ranging in price from $4,265 to $8,146, an entire floor at 1,455 square feet.
Here's a description of that unit:
This brand new floor through convertible 3 bedroom features an exclusive terrace, condo-level finishes such as Carrera marble Kitchen countertops and stainless steel appliances. Each apartment features an open layout with energy efficient, floor to ceiling windows. Apartments include radiant heated floors, customizable LED lighting, exclusive outdoor space, a dishwasher, an in-unit washer/dryer, and use of a high-end backup generator that can power the building during outages.
There are open houses for several of the units this week via broker Citi Habitats.
When the new development first revealed itself in 2011, it was named the rather jaunty Villa Capri, set to be ready in 2012.
