The tower rising at 148 East 24th Street has been kicking around since 2008, long enough that we once feared it had been lost to the mists of the recession. But the building started getting glassed last year, and here it is, folks. The first listings have hit the market, with occupancy set to start this fall. The amenities are mostly of the standard luxury condo variety: a common roof terrace, bike storage, live-in super, and a media room. Speaking of the media room?here's where things get interesting.
The signs for the automated parking garage were what clued us in to the building's reanimation in the first place, and it's still a feature. Here's how it works, according to the building press release:
The fully automated parking garage ensures that cars are never touched or driven in the attendant-free park-and-lock system.... ONE48 residents will be able to watch the entire state-of-the-art parking and retrieval process -- an elaborate display of synchronized movements considered therapeutic in comparable buildings -- from the common media room. Parking and therapy! Win?
