How far the neighborhoods east of Avenue B have come. Curbed's real estate spy reports that a new luxury loft building on East 2nd Street between B and C has sold out just as the listings came on the market. Each apartment in the five-unit building is one bedroom, priced from $545,000 to $745,000, with an elevator that opens into each apartment and views out to East Houston Street (which in our estimation has never looked finer). Why the, er, rush to get in? Says our spy, "It's right across from a fire station, but there are very few new one beds on the market at all, let alone for those prices."
