Construction watch: Houston House

The broker bunting recently arrived outside the Houston House, the condoplex nearing completion on East Houston just west of Avenue D. (The official address is 298 E. Second St.)

It has been awhile (17 months!) since we last checked in on this site. Here's a refresher via Lee Properties Group:

The project is 18,000 SF, 9 stories and will include 7 full floor condominium units, all with private outdoor space, roof terrace, and a duplex townhouse.

It will be New York City’s first high-end yet deeply sustainable building inspired by a Cross Laminate Timber modeled superstructure and Passive House standards. The building will feature triple-paned German-engineered, floor-to-ceiling windows, custom Italian millwork, Energy Recovery Ventilators, bike storage, and doorman.

And the rendering...

According to the recently unveiled Houston House teaser site, the 3- and 4-bedroom residences start at $2.8 million. Nest Seekers International’s Ryan Serhant will be doing the condo selling here.

This property was most recently the Houston Street Beer Distributors.

This parcel fetched a little more than $7 million in the fall of 2015, per public records.

$2.8M for Ave D. There is so much wrong with this.

2.8 million smackers to live in very close proximity to an FDR Drive access/exit route and far away from a subway station? Yeah, no. Also - if that blurb had mentioned one more European country I would have felt it necessary to bust out my passport if I wanted to look at the model apartment.

Plans for timber forms were nixed as the BOD + FDNY did not approve. It's just a steel + concrete building!
