The copper-covered condominium from architects/developers FLAnk at 385 West 12th Street has finally ditched its construction shed, completely revealing the metal facade for the first time. At center is the main entry, big glass doors topped by an angled canopy and flanked by front doors to the four "townhouse" apartments tucked away inside in the seven-story, 12-unit building. Townhouse 4, at 4,382-square-feet, was PriceChopped (as were other units) and sold for $6.75 million last April, and two of the others recently went into contract. That leaves only TH1, a 4,228-square-foot triplex at the east end of the building, now up for grabs at $7,195,000.
The floor plan for TH1 shows living, kitchen and dining on the main level, with a 24' x 24' garden out back. A floating staircase leads to bedrooms above: Two tight ones with a shared bath for the kids, and a generous suite for the folks up front. Downstairs is party central, with wine storage, a cozy fully-enclosed media room and a big open gallery tucked away under the garden. On top of all the heavy metal is the Aerie, a shared rooftop with a 50' lap pool, two sets of gas grills and views of new West 12th Street neighbors like Robert A.M. Stern's Superior Ink and fellow architect/developer Cary Tamarkin's 397 West 12th Street. When the Russians nuke us because the Nets don't win the NBA championship, we expect this above-ground bunker to be the only one of the three left standing.
