Building Description

The Flowerbox is a full-service doorman building featuring 8 loft-style residences, where the smallest apartment is 1,539sq ft and the largest a 6,665 sq ft penthouse. Each residence offers self-irrigating flowerboxes across the living rooms and private outdoor space off the master bedrooms, facing a quiet key-locked community garden. The ground floor unit is a 3BR with a 1,000 sq ft of private garden all its own. Lofts 4W and 4E are 3Br/3bth duplex apartments with 2 outdoors spaces for each. One of these residence’s interior design has inspired a New York Times profile: 3W and 3E, are 2br/2bth are some of the best apartments downtown, and like all spaces in the building, they come with 12 foot-ceilings, top of the line kitchen’s, radiant heating on all floors, pre-wired and installed speakers in every room, steel frame French doors in the middle of the living room for quick gazes out to the classic and well maintained brownstones on this tree-lined block between Avenues C and D. Buyers in this condomidum realized that although a short walk from the subway, they were moving into an unique building whose simplicity of its architecture and design garnered much newsprint and praise. One daily said it “set a new standard of luxury in the East Village”. Even the block has been the topic of an award-winning documentary; The top 3 floors of the building holds one of downtown’s premier penthouses, where every inch has been custom designed and the elevator ascends onto the 3-tiered private roof decks with 360 views. The penthouse also has its own garage that is to left of the concierge’s desk. The Flowerbox Building has only had 2 resales since it was developed and is currently up for its 10-year tax-abatement.
