What's more surprising: that one of the most celebrated new residential buildings in the world still has not sold out its 32 units after nearly two years, or that several Bond buyers do not currently plan on living in one of the most celebrated new residential buildings in the world? Answer: both! We've checked in on the 40 Bond flip scene before, and now StreetEasy currently shows five active rental listings in the building?including two of 40 Bond's five posh street-level townhouses, complete with backyards and private entrances through the graffiti gates. One is on the market for $45,000 per month and "probably" won't be ready until March, and the other (above) is yours for just $39k/month. For that kind of money you'd think they could thrown in a bonus tree for the "private landscaped garden." Or maybe a bush?
