More details made public about the 101 Condominium on 1st Avenue and 2nd Street

Workers put up the broker bunting yesterday at the 101 Condominium, Rybeck Development's condoplex rising on First Avenue and Second Street...

The signage offers more details on this 7-story, 23-unit residential building, including pricing. The studios are starting at $895,000. (No other pricing is mentioned.) The listed amenities include a full-time doorman, fitness center, lounge area, grill & wet bar and an "immaculate indoor/outdoor park" ...

Here's are a few new factoids about the building via the 101 website:

The 101’s facade of charcoal-gray masonry and pristine symmetrical glass surrounds its reinforced concrete structure in subtle curves, boasting a design that is, like the East Village itself, bold enough to dare and strong enough to last.


The 101 developers have gone beyond the building code’s requirements to cushion and shield each residence with spray foam insulation. The absolute standard in modern homes, spray foam insulation seals your walls, floors, and ceiling cavities against air movement, including spaces around electrical outlets and light fixtures, and where walls meet windows and doorways. Never losing its shape, spray foam provides sound attenuation while reducing air flow, minimizing drafts and cold floors. Save on your monthly energy bill while keeping your home quieter, warmer, and more tranquil.

Sales will commence in the the third quarter of 2020.

Two addresses — 24 First Ave. and its property mate 99-101 E. Second St. — were demolished to make room for the 101.

No. 24 's previous occupants included the cabaret Lucky Cheng's (1993-2012) and Club Baths, the first openly gay-owned bathhouse (1971-1983)... and Cave Canem and La Nouvelle Justine in between.

They seem to think that "absolute standard" is something to brag about, but it's just means a minimum expectation.

There's always the (slim) possibility that their architect is better than their copy-writer but my soul, at least, is not stirred by -

"Our shit building is better than sub-standard."

If they would just bring back Waikiki Wally's.

Anyone else hear that LaSalle is selling their building to the same developer buying Nativity Church in 2nd ave?
