High Line architects buy East Village co-op for $1.7M

From LLNYC: Starchitects Elizabeth Diller and Ricardo Scofidio — the husband and wife duo whose firm, Diller Scofidio Renfro, designed the High Line — just picked up a co-op at 115 East 9th Street for $1.7 million, according to Curbed.

Per city records, the design duo already owns the neighboring unit in the building — and has since at least 1999 — so it’s likely they are planning a conversion project. We have a feeling the plans for that renovation won’t be too much of a challenge for them.

This new “penthouse” unit is relatively modest. Clocking in at around 950 square feet, it has two bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms. It does have some really nice windows, so we’re sure the design duo will enjoy making the most of that. It was last listed for $1.575 million, so there might have been a bidding war for it. Amie Fields and Ira Fields of Corcoran had the listing.
