In non-housing bubble related news, three studio apartments in the Richard Meier-designed West Village apartment tower at 165 Charles Street are selling for over $1 million each. Two of these little pieces of heaven (682 to 703 square feet) have gone to contract, one for $1.325 million and the other for a bargain $1.25 million. Sound a little nutty? Bite your tongue!
Mr. Lansill said another buyer is negotiating for the third studio. The buyer, whom he declined to identify, is also in talks, he said, to purchase an entire floor higher up in the 17-story building and envisions the studio as an apartment for a full-time chef.Can't you feel it? Gonna be a good week.
