[Liberty Toye's sale office at 44 Avenue B]
As previously mentioned (here and here and here), Liberty Toye is the name of Ben Shaoul's condoplex taking over his nursing-home replacing rentals at 62 Avenue B.
And now sales are underway at the 81-unit building at Fifth Street. Here's the eye-rolling description::
Liberty Toye is located in the legendary East Village. Born in the creative clash of the 70’s and rocketing to iconic status in the 80’s, the neighborhood emerged as the epicenter of cool, producing a galaxy of stars and shaping an indelible worldview of New York City.
Today, at 62 Avenue B, stands Liberty Toye at the very crossroads that cradled the Culture of Cool. Modern luxuries abound in this urban sanctuary, where studio, one and two bedroom condominiums and private outdoor spaces provide the setting for the next chapter in the epic tale of downtown grit and glamour.
A lush entry garden leads to the marble and brass lobby where a doorman waits to greet you 24 hours a day. Experience a full suite of amenities, a recreation room, fitness center with a yoga room, and a landscaped roof deck outfitted with grills, dining areas, a lounge, an outdoor shower, and a 360-degree view of the vibrant city.
A residence at Liberty Toye evokes the allure of downtown New York City with a style all its own. Available as studio, one and two bedroom condominiums with dark-stained or light grey stained hardwood floors throughout. The kitchen features custom cabinets, white marble counters, and brushed brass fixtures, and is completed by stainless steel Bosch appliances. Bathrooms complement the space with white marble, chrome fixtures, and grey vanity with touches of brushed brass.
And here are photos of the model homes ... featuring framed photos of Joey Ramone, Grace Jones and Debbie Harry, among others...
Prices range from $660K to $1.8 million for buyers who may use Bitcoin for the purchase. (Shaoul's sales team is renting an office from the imprisoned Steve Croman at 44 Avenue B between Third Street and Fourth Street.)
Shaoul previously leveraged the neighborhood's history to potential renters at Bloom 62 in May 2013 with this unforgettable copy:
It sounds impossible: a fully-appointed luxury building has sprouted in the beating heart of the East Village. A 24-hour doorman greets you before work in the morning, after returning from a cafe in the evening and when heading out to Tompkins Square Park on the weekends. You'll have every modern convenience, from a gym to a roof deck to in-unit laundry, on the same streets where names like The Ramones, Warhol and Hendrix and [sic] paved the history of this neighborhood for years to come.
