Located in the heart of Greenwich Village, the condos at 12 East 13th Street are near completion. Scaffolding has been removed to reveal the red-brick facade and industrial-style windows with black chevron-patterned metal spandrels. The original 1930s structure, a former parking garage, has been left intact with four new stories added to accommodate a 5,700 square foot triplex penthouse which is listed for $30,500,000. The $32 million project is a joint development by DHA Capital and Continental Properties, and contains eight three-and-four-bedroom units.
The non-penthouse units start at $2,308 per square foot. The living spaces will stretch between 38 to 42 feet wide along the front exposure of the building, allowing in lots of light. CetraRuddy, the firm behind 443 Greenwich and now 12 East 13th, left the building’s structural beams uncovered throughout the units to memorialize the site’s past industrial use. The spacious units are atypical for Greenwich Village homes, but the building’s most unique feature is its automated parking system.
Each home comes with a parking space managed by the Park Plus robotic parking system – 12 East 13th will be the first building in the city to use Park Plus. Residents will be able to pull up to the private parking entrance on the first floor to have their cars lifted up and parked by robots, and then request to pick up their cars via smartphone in less than 30 seconds. Other building amenities include individual storage rooms, a 24-hour doorman, a fully-equipped fitness center, and bike storage.
Available units include the triplex penthouse, featuring an open wood and glass sculptural staircase, and Residence 9, a duplex apartment with a 20-foot by 65-foot terrace. A full list of available residences, along with floorplans, can be found at the 12 East 13th website. If you’re interested in learning more about any of these residences, please let me know.
