A developer brought luxury condos to his childhood block in 2007 with the launch of the self-irrigating Flowerbox Building, with a garden on the front and a view of a community garden out the back. The apartments went into contract quickly, and aside from a spate of resales in 2009, they haven't really resurfaced. Until now! Apartment 3W just hit the market for $2.595 million. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, 1,539 square feet?so that price works out to $1,686/square foot. The place was last listed for $1.595 million in 2009, but it's unclear what its ultimate sale price was.
