Any description that begins with "Ready for renovation!" catches the attention of the Funky Friday Listings crew. And so is the case at this new-to-market zen temple at at 55 West 16th Street. There's 2,300 square feet to explore here, including an awkward shelving system, louche sofas and seating, and a pretty good-looking kitchen, all apparently the work of designer Raymond Waites, though the listing also adds, "Bring your architect and engineer!" Not a bad idea. Asking: $2.25 million.
