No sweat? Former Dolphin Gym for lease

Signs up are now at the former Dolphin Gym on Avenue B near Second Street... As you may recall, the gym quickly shuttered back in February.

Anyway, um, not sure how viable retail is here... in the basement of a former gym? (Sounds like the perfect home for the next Mad Dog Room!) No details on the lease. The number belongs to Skyline Development. No listing posted just yet. I haven't heard the Duane Reade expansion rumor in some time. Perhaps it's time to revive that one.

EV Etc.: $801,000 for a basement

Well, it is in the Dakota.

From the AP:

While $801,000 may sound like a lot for a basement den that cannot legally be used as a dwelling, it isn't unusual to see well-off Manhattanites paying top dollar for auxiliary space, said real estate appraiser Jonathan Miller.

A 100-square-foot to 200-square-foot storage room in an upper crust building could easily sell for $150,000 to $350,000, if it had a sink or its own toilet, he said.
