Make Your Own Novogratz House; Moving Into The Touraine

New, 3 comments


WEST VILLAGE?Here's the funny thing about paper models that are supposed to resemble real life buildings?they're sort of supposed to look like them. Vintage Magazine has, within the pages of its current issue, one that you can fold into the roughly 3-D shape of 400 West Street, a townhouse of unusually off-kilter facades better known as the Novogratz hoops house, which has been on and off the market for about four years, most recently listed for $18.5 million. It's owned by husband-and-wife design duo Bob and Cortney Novogratz, and built with their seven kids in mind. And, duh, it contains a basketball court. Though the paper model is pretty darn adorbs, it's not exactly IRL. I mean, the color is off, there's no giant "FAMILY" on the side, and what is up with the roof deck? The striated garage door is spot-on, though, and the magazine calls the playful five-story manse Dr. Seuessian, which seems apt. [CurbedWire Inbox; previously]

UPPER EAST SIDE?The Toll Brothers' Frenchie and not-so-newbie-anymore, The Touraine, has some updates to deliver. The 22-unit condo tower at 135 East 65th Street was pretty much sold out before it was finished, and there's still only one unit left. Twenty-two apartments are in contract, and by the end of July, 16 units will have been delivered to residents, which is a total of $50.7 million delivered into the pockets of the Brothers. Buyers can move into the other five spoken-for units (totaling $38.3 million) between August and October. Go ahead, take a look inside the place to see what these folks are getting for the price.
