Our friends at StreetEasy have alerted us that architect Shigeru Ban's Metal Shutter Houses, the new 11-story West Chelsea neighbor to Frank Gehry's IAC building that we were briefly infatuated with last month (see this, this and this), have hit the market. And it appears that one Metal Shutter House, a $4.5 million four-bedroom unit, is already in contract. Crushingly, Corcoran Sunshine provides no new renderings of the building, nor any floorplans for the units. Bo-ring. Well, we can always head down to West 19th Street and stare at the bamboo construction fence to get pumped up again.
