As previously reported, East Village-based Starleeng Equities is putting up an eight-story, seven-unit residential building. New York Yimby noted that the residential units should average 1,967 square feet apiece — most likely condos. There will be a duplex apartment on the ground and second floors, with full-floor apartments on the third through eighth floors.
According to public records, the building that housed the Houston Street Beer Distributors sold for a little more than $7 million in the fall of 2015.
