Former Rock Club Sin-é Sells for $3.8M, 6-Story Development on the Way
On upper Attorney Street, change is happening all at once. Full-on residential wave breaking here, with three huge land deals in the blink of an eye. Last week, we told you that the Ludlow Garage put the property up for sale, and that the warehouse across the street did the same.
Today, we learn that 148 Attorney Street, formerly the rock club Sin-é, finally found a buyer. Two Kings Real Estate purchased the building back in January for a slender $3.8 million.
Plans were initially filed, and approved, in the summer of 2015 for a six-story condo development designed by Issac & Stern Architects. But the project was sidelined and put on the market in November of that year. It appears, however, that Two Kings Real Estate will follow through on the original proposal.
From the inbox:
The company will build an exclusive 6-story residential condo building to capture demand for apartments in one of New York City’s most popular neighborhoods. New developments and attractions such as Essex Crossing and the Lowline add to the ongoing transformation of an area largely known for its vibrant nightlife and music scene.
Ironic to call out the (now anemic) music scene when replacing the well-regarded (and long-defunct) venue.
The project is set to begin this year, with a targeted completion of 2018.
Sin-é pinballed around the city during its two-decade run. It was founded on St. Mark’s Place in 1989, closed in 1996, had a brief stint in Brooklyn in 2000, then re-opened at 148-150 Attorney Street in 2002. This was to be its final resting place. It was Jeff Buckley who first put the club on the mainstream map after releasing his Live at Sin-é EP in 1993. Other notable performers at the original location were Ben Folds, David Gray, and the October Project.
