Selling the First Modular Condo Development on the Lower East Side
The not-so-idyllic Idylls is ready for occupancy on Henry Street.
The seven-story modular development – stacked together over the course of six days last spring – houses five full-floor, two-bedroom apartments (with terraces) and commercial retail on the ground. Pre-fab condo units are all priced at a spending ask of $2.1 million.
Brooklyn-based Think! Architecture + Design was tasked with design duties.
Brokers, meanwhile, are trying to woo buyers with its roof deck grill situation, 24-hour cyber doorman, and a live-in superintendent.
The new 193 Henry Street is one of three modular buildings dreamed up by local owner-developer Daniel Wise. It Joins the 20-story CitizenM hotel on the Bowery as the only modular developments on the Lower East Side. The latter is considered the largest such construction in the world.
As previously reported, the new 193 Henry Street rises on the ashes of the Mount Zion Church of Christ, a house of worship for years. It quickly met its maker in the summer of 2016, one year after Wise scooped up the tenement for $4.15 million (we miss that gorgeous cornice).
Of course, Idylls on Henry Street should not be confused with the excellent band of same.
