Two years ago, we learned that developer Mitchell Holdings picked up the old Plumbers Local 1 building at 21 East 26th Street on Madison Square Park with the intention of turning it into condos. Now the conversion is nearing completion, and the Observer has the details of what's inside. The small building, named The Whitman, is home to three long, full-floor residences that reach nearly 5,000-square-feet, plus a 6,540-square-foot duplex penthouse. The single-floor homes will ask $10 million, $10.25 million, and $10.5 million, with the prices increasing with the floors, and the penthouse, which comes with three terraces and 27,500-square-feet of air rights, will be listed at $22.5 million.
Jeffrey Cole Architects designed the homes, finishing them with wide plank rift oak floors, kitchens by Arclinea, and "a different variety of high-end stone in every bathroom." The building stretches through the whole block, and the 1,500-square-foot living rooms face East 26th Street and Madison Square Park while the master bedrooms face East 27th Street. The other bedrooms face a narrow courtyard to the West.
The units have not yet been listed, but the building is set to be complete this spring. And according to StreetEasy, it's still slated to be featured on the upcoming second season of Bravo's Million Dollar Listing. Nice!
