This is the last unit left at the Copper Building, where you can already see the Freedom Tower

That's right... the Copper Building at Avenue B and 13th Street is now all filled with residents — aka, Coppertoners.

There's one apartment left — the one-bedroom loft penthouse with views of the Empire State Building and the Eiffel Tower... and, apparently, the Freedom Tower...

Per the listing at Prudential Douglas Elliman:


Come see the last unit at the Copper Building, a chic one bedroom loft PH with an oversized private terrace that has views of the Empire State Building. Located in the heart of trendy East Village, this incredible apartment will knock your socks off. There are 20 foot high ceilings with floor to ceiling windows that capture views of Manhattan like no other apartment in the city. You can see the iconic buildings from the Freedom Tower to the Empire State Building! This one bedroom condo has 1 1/2 bathrooms, laundry in the apartment, an open chef's kitchen, 180 views of the city, private terrace, and the list just goes on and on.

See for yourself during the opening house Sunday from noon to 1:30... And the folks were good enough to trim $100,000 (6.7 percent) off the price yesterday ... it's now going for $1.4 million. (According to StreetEasy, $1,65 million was the original asking price...)

(Updated) The Copper Building residences are looking rather...drab

Two listings popped up for the Copper Building on the Manhattan Management Group Web site. (And I'm assuming that it's the Copper Building on 13th Street and Avenue B: While no address is listed, how many other new condos in this neighborhood have a zen garden, a virtual doorman and are offering to cover common charges and taxes for the first two years?)

Anyway, some of the Copp's early renderings did look awfully nice and luxurious, such as:

And now check out the photos via the listing for the 850-square-foot one bedroom (on the fifth floor, and going for $790,000):

It looks pretty dull and drab. What's with the single lightbulb hanging in the kitchen? And what's with the tinted plastic covering half the windows? (Is this to frustrate the potential peepers?)

Anyway, according to Streeteasy, there are 10 active listings...and eight listings in contract.


Apparently the photos above are phonies.... per the comments at Curbed...

Hi Curbedsters and friends. These are not photos of the project. What this is, is a small RE sales company using our name and photos of a different project to obtain client via their website. I would be happy to bring anybody into the project at anytime to see the work that is being done. Please know that these photos are not of our property "The Copper Building" just a scam to trick buyers. Call me at anytime 212-321-7113 my Name is Brian Meier and I have been working on the building for two years now. I would be happy to give you all a personal tour of the property you will see that we look nothing like the photos presented

As Curbed noted, the photos have already been pulled from the Manhattan Management Group site.

Welcome to the Hotel Copper Building!

Over at the Copper Building, the newish high-end condo on Avenue B at 13th Street where residents are paying upwards of $3.8 million to live, you now have the opportunity to book a room there starting at $280 per night. (Five-night minimum!)

Per the description at Airbnb:

This magnificent, spacious, 1 bedroom apartment is located just 3 blocks from Tompkin Square Park, in the beautiful "Copper Building" in the coveted East Village. This corner unit is lined with windows providing copious amounts of natural light from all angles. Step out onto your wrap around balcony to experience breathtaking views of Manhattan.

With an established music scene, funky shops, restaurants and bars the East Village truly defines what it means to be hip. Close proximity to a state-of-the-art dog run, beloved by pooches all over. A block and a half from the nearest subway, it conveniently enables easy access to any area in the city

Looks like you have access to the building's gym too... (No word on the "zen garden.")

Despite being in an area that truly defines what it means to be hip, the hoteliers have decided that this is part of Stuy Town...

A look at 331 E. Houston St., with a rooftop deck for outdoor showers and 'Live Free or Die Hard'

Here's a look at the new 13-floor residential building with 78 units going up at East Houston and Ridge Street.

It just seems ... massive.

[The view from East 2nd Street]

The website of project architect Stephen B. Jacobs offers a few more details on the building at 331 E. Houston St./163 Ridge St.

The ground floor includes the residential lobby, a lounge, and apartments in the rear of the building which have access to outdoor space. A large skylight brings natural light to the gym in the cellar, and stairs provide access to recreational outdoor space in the rear yard. A mix of studios, one, and two-bedroom apartments make up the bulk of the building. The top floor includes a three-bedroom apartment with a balcony. The rooftop is designed as an amenity space for the building, complete with deck seating, projector screen, bar, and outdoor shower.

The interior design was inspired by the raw nature of materials in the Lower East Side, such as exposed concrete and blackened steel, and includes touches of color such as the graffiti tiled accent wall in the lobby.

His firm's East Village work includes the Copper Building on Avenue B and the Village Green on East 11th Street.

Oh, and here are some renderings ...

... and notice the rooftop theater is inexplicably projecting an ad for "Live Free or Die Hard" (aka "Die Hard 4")

The building will reportedly include 20 percent affordable housing.

The L-shape parcel here sat empty for years, the property of reclusive real-estate baron William Gottlieb.

And it's just the latest project in the changing East Houston corridor... including the new 10-story residential building at Suffolk Street ... the 12-story Adele ... and the 9-floor building planned for the former Mobil station lot at Avenue C.

2 small shops out on East 14th Street, though 1 is moving into the Copper Building

EVG reader John passes along information about the friendly fellow named Ba, a Senegal native, who has a sliver of a shop next to East Side 99¢ on East 14th Street near Avenue B.

"He works very long hours selling socks, gloves, phone chargers, etc. — all kinds of stuff," John wrote. Unfortunately, the landlord is looking for a big rent hike, and both shops will be out.

John said that Ba is looking for a new space in the neighborhood, or perhaps elsewhere. "If anyone hears of anything, it would be nice to let him know."

As for the East Side 99¢ shop, it's our understanding that they are moving into the retail space in the Copper Building around the corner on Avenue B at East 13th Street. (Several readers noted this after our post on it here.)

The stock is piling up at the store (unless a Copper Building resident is hoarding personal toaster ovens and blenders) ...

We like this addition to this corner...

Rumormongering: Copper Building film festival

A fairly credible source told me that some EV thrillseekers have been showing films on the white sheets that covered parts of the under-construction Copper Building on 13th Street and Avenue B. Not sure on all the logistics about how this happened exactly, but when pressed, I was assured that this happened several times over the summer. Would have liked to have known then, so I could have joined them...

Meanwhile. Progress! Those sheets are coming down at the Copper.

Is the Copper Building all sold out?

Haven't paid much attention to the Copper Building (ol' Rusty!) on Avenue B and 13th Street since we were, uh, duped by some phonie interior photos in December... I thought about the Big Copper yesterday after seeing it all gleamy in the distance.

So I went to see how many units were still on the market...and after searching, I couldn't find any active listings......there appear to be eight units in contract right now...

Oh, meanwhile, there are some X's on the windows! Something possibly X-Files related about this?

Standing outside the Copper Building (waiting on a friend)

Oh, nothing really to note here at the Copper Building at 13th Street and Avenue B... just seeing how easy it will be to look into someone's apartment from street level...

Thought maybe we'd get a response out of EV Grieve reader Despiser of the Copper Crapper too...

Copper Building shows off its nether regions

Well! Look who's showing off now... As EV Grieve reader Caroline noted yesterday in this photo that she sent along, workers removed the sidewalk shed around the Copper Building at 13th Street and Avenue B ...

Alas, she won't be around for any ribbon-cutting ceremonies, though. "I've been living next door for two years and I am finally moving next week," Caroline said, "but I'll always have my memories of 2+ years of nonstop jackhammering noise."

And here's what the rendering looked like...

How'd they do?

And here are a few shots that I took later...


Cue the music ... Now let's take a stroll through our photo archives... at the former site of The Sylvia del Villard Program of the Roberto Clemente Center, which helped to offer counseling and therapy to people who were discharged from psychiatric facilities.

See you soon!
