The former parking garage at 12 East 13th Street is getting a makeover courtesy of developers DHA Capital and Continental Properties and the architects at CetraRuddy. While there is work still to be done on the building itself?including four added stories and a new elongated brick facade with wide windows?the condos-in-progress are ready enough for sale. Five units are on the market (with the official website to come, we hear, a bit later today). Pricing will range from approximately $7.5 million for a 3BR, 3.5BA to around $28.5 million for a 5BR, 6BA triplex penthouse with terrace.
Amenities include the standard, like gym, bike storage, and a private storage unit for each apartments, and the slightly less standard: 12 East 13th Street will be the first building in the city to use the robot parking system created by Park Plus. (There at least one other building in Manhattan with an automated parking garage, so we assume this is the first use of just this particular system.) Residents pull up to the private parking entrance on the first floor and, after they get out of their cars, the car is lifted up to the second floor and parked there by robot. Residents can also pick up their cars via smartphone in less than 30 seconds. So no one will be nostalgic for the parking garage that used to stand here.
