Apartments in the city’s first crowd-funded condo project are hitting the market, with prices starting at $1.2 million.

The building, located at 234 East 46th Street between Second and Third avenues, is a joint venture between crowdfunding firm the Prodigy Network and corporate apartment provider Korman Communities.

The condos are all one-bedroom units ranging from 500 to 600 square feet and priced between $1.2 million and $1.5 million. The units are targeted at foreign buyers intending to live in the apartments part time and rent them out for the rest of the year, according to the New York Daily News.

Prodigy and Korman raised more than 10 percent of the equity for the project from small investors who chipped in as little as $50,000 for a share. The investors would catch their windfall upon the building’s sellout and stand to make a 15 percent return.
