The new building, six-plus years in the making, is across from the 6BC Botanical Garden between Avenue B and Avenue C ... which was apparently the inspiration for the name.
We first heard about this project in January 2016. The end result is five units, priced from $2.95 million to the two-level penthouse, which has a $6.995 million ask.
Per the Streeteasy description: "La Botanica's biophilic design philosophy brings the outdoors inside while maximizing light, fresh air, and intimate streetscape views."
And here's one graph from the PH description:
The penthouse soaks in the East Village streetscape through its two-story-high, 23-foot-wide, black steel-framed glass wall that opens to a pair of Juliet balconies. The soaring, double-height living room overlooks the garden across the street. Looking south, this glorious vista includes the stepping roof gable and ivy-covered brick and terracotta facades of the Calvert Vaux-designed former school building across the street.
The previous one-story structure (housing a furniture designer) at 619 E. Sixth St. hit the market for $5.4 million in November 2013 before selling for $4.3 million.
