More developments at the Washington Condos

Construction workers recently put in the glass garage door and front doors.

What does everyone think about the lack of a flush front door? Do you think people will dump trash there, smoke there and urinate there?

In other news, some readers were upset by rumors that the sponsor is holding out for a permanent C of O before letting people close. Others were upset by the general lack of communication for this project.

looks like they lowered the placement of the banner and also added the other a/h office phone number to the banner? or am i completely off on this?

The vestibule will be too well-trafficked for much trash to accumulate, but dogs will pee in it (as soon as they step out the door), and smokers will light up in it (as soon as they step out the door). It will smell in there before too long. Bad idea.

Cool.... people can go from a zen garden to a smoker's den within a few steps.

the doors to the duplex townhouses to the left in the B building are also set in too..perhaps this was by design.

are dogs allowed in 35 underhill per the offering plan?

i think the set-in vestibule makes it really uninviting — it looks dark. Perhaps this might be ok in another city where people respect other people's space, but in New York City this is sadly not the case. Hopefully, there will be nice lighting in there at night to make it seem welcoming to those who live there, and too bright for those who would prefer to use it as their personal urinal.

so who should we bash, the architect, or the interior designer, who is durukan design, per the washington website?

i think motion detection lights in that nook is a must.

btw, funny comment about how we should all live there until we close on the units...haarrrr!!!

probably the architect. I think that it wouldn't be much of a big deal to put another door up front once everyone has moved in

The building looks ok to me, just be happy is not a Fu.....ing fedders showcase, we should be happy about this kind of developments!

it's ironic that the development is called the washington condos and the bulk of it is on washington ave, yet their main entrance and address are on underhill. their website also barely mentions businesses on washington and focuses on vanderbilt. sure vandy's further along in 'amenities' than wash, but still. give some love to the street you take your name from and mostly front on.

it's also a shame that the corner of wash and dean is not being utilized. not sure what's going to be there, but it looks too small to be an entrance.

I agree, Washington Ave is essentially "The Washington Condos'" back alley...hmmm.

The Washington Condo at 35 Underhill has an elected board, a permanent certificate of occupancy, tax lots, 421a tax abatement until 2023, and a non sponsor management company. It is at least 90% occupied, and has past the growing pains phase. I hope this helps anyone curious.
