Does Controversial East Village Starchitecture Get Better With Age?

PriceSpotter is Curbed's asking price guessing game. We provide you with some details and pictures from an apartment listing, and you take a crack at the price in the comments. Tomorrow we reveal the answer. And hey, no cheating!

What/Where: 3BR/3BA condop on Lafayette at Astor Place
Square Feet: 2,248
Maintenance/CC: $6,600 (yes, per month)
The Skinny: Usually we like our PriceSpotter buildings to be anonymous, or at least a bit of a mystery. We have a feeling the location, look and details of this new-to-market listing (details such as "120 feet of undulating floor-to-ceiling windows") won't keep this one much of a secret. So we'll do something different this week. Since this apartment, on a high floor in a building that had one of the most controversial designs of the real estate boom, is a resale, we'll tell you what it last sold for: $4,022,087. That was nearly five years ago. So, what has happened to the value (or the seller's confidence) since then? Have a look at the floorplan, and then place your bids!
