57 Front redux
The proverbial shit has hit the fan at 57 Front. Months after news broke that there was a catfight between the Walentas clan and Lev Boymelgreen concerning easements, there are now a few units on sale at Corcoran.
Without knowing the whole story, our presumption is that incensed buyers were upset that they would lose a window in one of their bedrooms, tried valiantly to get a break on their contract price, weren't able to get one, and most likely rescinded their contracts.
Now, some lucky buyers out there have the opportunity to buy their piece of the DUMBO pie. And what an opportunity it is - 970 square feet of living space for a sparse $580K! Take a look at the floorplan- that window in the study room doesn't really exist after all is said and done. The floorplans also curiously show 'permanent shelving' in the study room.
Go up four floors and you'll pay $650K for a 970 square foot loft with home studio.
Anyone who knows the juicy scoop, please comment! And we know you're out there, especially since the 57 Front yahoo group was spawned off of the commentary here.
