As previously noted, this project has been taking its time. The groundbreaking took place in September 2016. The build included nearly 14 months of inactivity.
And, to refresh your memory, some details about the building — dubbed "an architectural masterpiece" and a "timeless glass tower" via the 75 First Ave. website:
The building lobby boasts a fumed glass door entrance, lava stone floors and walls, and a contrasting yellow travertine stone desk. Black stucco adorns the elevator walls, while the private residents lounge features a yellow travertine stone fireplace, white stucco walls with brass reveals, a pool table, and several areas of seating. Additional amenities include a full-time doorman, a landscaped rooftop, a fitness center, and bicycle storage.
Available units include 1 and 3-bedroom homes with several 1-bedrooms featuring sizeable home offices, and a dazzling selection of Penthouse residences crown the building. Each home of 75 First Ave blends a modern open layout with sleek finishes, Italian doors and hardware by Lualdi, and gorgeous floor-to-ceiling windows. Kitchens are equipped with white and greige matte lacquered cabinets custom made in Italy by Arclinea, white Carrara marble countertops and backsplash, Fantini faucets, and top-of-the-line Miele appliances. Bathrooms are adorned with custom sinks and vanities, and Piasentina stone flooring.
Here's a look at the rendering on the plywood...• 2020 vision: New completion set for Rite Aid-adjacent condoplex on 1st Avenue
No word on pricing or availability at the No. 75 website.
The removal of the sidewalk bridge also means that the 99-cent store at 73 First Ave. next door returns to view... thankfully they made it out of the lengthy construction process... (and it should almost be time for the Christmas stuff to show up in the front windows!)
