ICYMI, 80 E. 10th St., the deluxe cantilevering condoplex at the southeast corner of 10th Street and Fourth Avenue, recently came into full view as workers cleared away the remaining plywood and sidewalk bridge.
Here's a look along 10th Street...
The next photo, taken a few days after the two above, shows that the 10th Street sidewalk is back open (and the street is finally clear of construction equipment after 28 months) ...
The 10-floor condoplex — called Eighty East Tenth — features 12 units, ranging from one to five bedrooms. The three remaining residences on the Eighty East Tenth website fall in the $7.5 million range.
Some details on the building from the website:
“Eighty East Tenth Street sits at the heart of a historically significant stretch of Fourth Avenue formerly known as Book Row, once the center of the rare and antique book trade in America. Inspired by this unique history, NAVA began an intensive creative process of transforming and expressing the written word into a physical pattern on the building’s façade. The resulting metal surface features a circular grid pattern of discreet concave and convex impressions which make each panel a distinct manifestation of the neighborhood's rich heritage.”
There's also 2,900 square feet of retail space on the market.
As noted before, a one-level row of businesses were on this corner, including the Green East deli and St. Marx Music, until 2007.
The storefronts sat empty for years, waiting for development. Here's the corner in 2013...
