Developer Murat Bugdaycay had to drastically alter his plan for the pair of 19th-century buildings at 52-54 Lispenard Street to pass muster with the LPC and, a year and a half later, marketing for the condo conversion is kicking into gear. BuzzBuzz Home spotted a teaser site, which features the new rendering at left (click for big!). The basics: there will be seven stories housing the seven two- to - five bedrooms, most with outdoor space, which will ask anywhere from $2 million to $7 million.
52 Lispenard, the left building, is currently shorter because three of its floors were lopped off in a 1937 fire. Bugdaycay originally wanted to raze 52 and build a slim, modern tower to complement No. 54 next door, and even out the building's tops with a penthouse addition for 54. The LPC ultimately approved a more traditional steel-stucco facade for 52 last April, so here we go.
