New 3rd Street condoplex off the Bowery is called 3E3; first unit hits the market

The first unit at the condoplex at 3 E. Third St. has arrived on the market.

Given the address here, the building just east of the Bowery is dubbed 3E3.

There's also a teaser site up now with more info on the development...

Per the 3E3 website...

Welcome to 3E3, a bold take on modern luxury in the city's most avant-garde neighborhood. Inspired by the rich evolution of the Bowery, 3E3 embraces contrast to deliver a vibrant yet sophisticated living experience in the heart of Downtown. Leave boring at the door. You've now arrived at 3E3.

And about the residences?

This boutique building consists of five industrial-inspired luxury residences featuring a restrained color and materials palette where subtlety and detail matter. Inspired by the Bowery's past, with attention on New York City's future, 3E3 is a stunning amalgamation of old and new, raw and refined, bold and nuanced. Industrial materials and sleek design choices create a contemporary aesthetic that's true to modern life. 3E3's stakes out a prominent position overlooking Bowery, with a fully glazed façade that bathes residences with southern light.

And about the past and present of this neighborhood?

The Bowery has seen it all, from the rich history of the Five Points to rock and art royalty. Ever evolving it remains the heartbeat of NYC cool. 3E3 sits at this phenomenal nexus of bustling Downtown chic, where the East Village, Bowery, NoHo, SoHo, Nolita and Lower East Side collide. From your early-morning fitness routine to a late-night underground concert, the city's premier cutting-edge boutiques, cultural destinations, dining and nightlife venues await, just steps from your front door.

The one unit on the market is asking $3.75 million. Compass has the listing.

Alex Barrett’s Barrett Design and Development paid $11.5 million in 2016 for the property, a building that served as short-term rentals for students and interns.

For those that doubted it, the East Village is being demolished one block at a time for luxury housing. Stop voting for politicians who work against your interest or start thinking about moving to Detroit.

Our pols are political hacks. They exist for the party not the people. It's the failt of the voters who mindlessly pull the Dem lever primary after primary, general election after general election. And inbetween we don't ho;d their feet to the fire. In a better world a recall petition would be circulated to remove ReZone Rivera from office... but she has a job for life because she's more loyal to the party than to the EV community. So it's Build Baby Build... Destroy Baby Destroy brought to you by Carlina and the corrupt. ONE PARTY RULE.

@12:27pm: Can you clarify exactly how we can figure out who is lying to us BEFORE we vote for them? Rivera talked a good talk, then turned tail when the vote was taken. De Blasio talked a good talk, and has turned out to be one of the most useless politicians on the face of the earth (which is saying something).

I do research before I vote. I inform myself to the best of my ability about who's running, what their background is - basically, what can I "know" about them in advance. I do NOT mindlessly vote for the Democrat. But NONE of it makes a difference, as far as I can tell.

NYC is apparently a HUGE piggy-bank, just here for the taking. And they ARE taking it!

PS: "3E3" - wow, did they have a team working overtime to develop that name?

At this point in NYC history if a candidate is running on the Dem line they are lying... Cynical? But still sad.

@4:37pm: So we should just vote Republican or Independent, b/c that'll definitely give us better results? I don't think so!

At this point I believe some of the Dem politicos did have good intentions regarding housing for regular people, but once they are confronted with the enormity of the real estate lobby influence, the largest political contributor in all NY state, they cave.

This new boring piece of overpriced glass box is another prime example of the present day EV experience artist sells his small studio and residence building that used to take in artist lodgers on the top floor, and they put in cheap, boring architecture for the monied masses.
