An entire Upper East Side condo development for $16M?

December 30, 2013 05:52PM

Two months after sales launched, a nine-story condominium building in the Upper East Side has hit the market for $16 million.

The building at 234 East 70th Street between Second and Third avenues has two units still available – a penthouse listed for $4.3 million and a floor-through apartment asking $1.9 million. Tamir Shemesh of the Corcoran Group handles the sales of individual units, as well as the sale of the building in full.

The $16 million price tag would put the building at roughly the same value as the sum of its parts. Architect Ariel Aufgang designed the building, which was last sold in 2006 for $3.5 million. Back then, the building was four stories tall.

All units feature keyed elevator entry and most have private outdoor space, Curbed reported.

Last month, Aufgang was tapped to design a 187-unit building at 411 West 35th Street, as previously reported. [Curbed]Mark Maurer

    That’s a lot considering the 2 nd Avenue subway is going to be rumbling that whole site once built.

    I heard they had construction issues and cut a lot of corners, probably will have some post construction litigations. Amazing what one might find behind the walls with this Leed Fake Certified building.

    I heard from someone all because they “sold” some units, doesn’t mean they are going to close after they see/ hear about the issues.

      What a joke>

    Seems fitting for a slimy project to go to a slimy broker.

    Why would someone sell the building if they only have 2 apartments left. Something is NOT RIGHT
