The new-to-market condo at 88 South 1st Street is actually four buildings?the townhouses at 84-90 South 1st Street?that attempt to "recreate the grandeur of a classic city streetscape and recapture the glitzy opulence of the pre-war era," in the words of the brokerbabble. We're not really getting a sense of glitzy opulence from the listing photos and floorplans, but frankly, we prefer it that way when it comes to new 'Burg condos. The prices also give a pretty clear non-opulence signal, and they appear to be finding buyers: all five of the 2BRs shown on the listings page are marked as "in contract" or "offer accepted."
What does 88 South 1st have to offer in terms of amenities? The elevator opens directly into the units, there are washer/dryer hookups and iPod pre-wiring, floor-to-ceiling windows, and the usual luxury kitchen and bathroom fixtures. Photos and floorplans in the gallery above.
