Originally built as an apartment tower,
the building has gone condo and is now known as the Metropolitan.
Prices of the 215 units originally ranged from $69,000 to $209,000.
The studio, one- and two-bedroom units feature one of 18 different
floor plans. Standard finishes include maple or cherry cabinetry,
GE appliances and wall-to-wall carpeting, with the option to add
granite countertops, slate floors and stainless appliances as upgrades.
Penthouse units were later made available
on the top (14th) floor. Prices for the penthouses went up to $449,000.
Resident amenities will include a penthouse-level
swimming pool and spa, exercise rooms and 24-hour concierge.
Designers Barbara Hulanicki and Mitchell Freedland are helping to
give this 1960's relic a hip makeover.
Renovation was completed in late 2005.
