Lowdown: We've been waiting for the old Sohmer Piano Factory, an Astoria landmark near the water and Socrates Sculpture Park, to turn up on the market for some time now?ever since the Times filed its Astoria piano factory conversion twofer. In that story, the building's developer indicated prices would come in around $650/sqft for non-penthouses, and that appears to be the case. Of course, that was in October, causing one Curbed tipster to write us today asking if the parties involved are aware that the market has slightly changed. Amenities in the 1887 building include a doorman, gym pet spa and leasable parking?and the half of the building with fairly stunning Manhattan views should whet a few appetites. But what's with all Long Island City branding on the listings and website? Show some Astoria pride, people!
