We’ve been curious for some time now when the condos over at East 17th Street and Avenue Z would hit the market. It’s been months since we announced that the retail portion of the building was sold to a group of local doctors for a medical office. And we’ve been following construction on the building, noting in September that the building seemed almost complete. Still, we wondered when The Corcoran Group, which represents the residential units of 1702 Avenue Z, would announce open houses. Well, wait no longer: the high-end real estate giant posted prices and floor plans to its website yesterday.
The units are asking between $800,000 and $900,000 for between17,000 and 19,000
1,700 and 1,900 square feet. They each feature three bedrooms and balconies, and most have three or three and a half bathrooms. Corcoran is marketing the high-end nature of this building on what was once a rundown garage: African Walnut hardwood floors, roof access, granite countertops, porcelain tiling, and Bosch appliances. What it’s notably lacking, though, is parking. Though the 10 units are attracting new families to the area, it does little to alleviate the extra burden they’ll put in an already parking-strained area.
If you’re interested in doling out almost a million dollars for a parking nightmare, Corcoran is having open houses tomorrow between 5 and 6 p.m.
