BP-Replacing Condo Debuts on 2nd Avenue with Mathieu Lehanneur Showroom
The last gas station in the East Village is now a ten-story condoplex. Now, after more than two years of construction, the limestone-clad development at 24 2nd Avenue inches ever closer to occupancy.
Construction materials are gone.
The incoming mixed-use development, designed by RSVP Studio, boasts thirty apartments, including a pair of duplexes, and capped with a duplex penthouse with private roofdeck. All range in price from $1.1 million to $10.5 million. Amenities include a bike storage room, tenant storage, a fitness room, and a second-floor “outdoor tenant recreation area.”
To that end, the first occupant is already settled. A high-end showroom for designer Mathieu Lehanneur on the ground floor. Awning was installed last month and store is now live.
AORE Holdings LLC purchased 24 Second Avenue back in July 2014 for an unwieldy $32 million. BP and its symbiotic mechanic shop shuttered shortly thereafter. The development company is helmed by Yan Ouaknine and Dan Azogui, formerly of Brack Capital Real Estate.
