This spring, developer Edward Minskoff paid $26.6 million for a handsome, terra cotta-bedecked building full of commercial lofts on West 12th Street between University Place and Broadway. His Minskoff Equities is converting the eight-story property into six condos. As of today, 37 East 12th street has a teaser site, first spotted by BuzzBuzzHome, which proffers the first glimpse at their French-inspired interiors, plus floorplans. CS Architecture is creating one townhouse (three stories, 5,890 square feet) four apartments (3,000 square feet apiece), and one duplex penthouse (6,325 square feet).
Inside, there are barrel-vaulted ceilings, chevron-patterned wood floors, and, for those who are into art, marble "reclaimed from the original Museum of Modern Art facade." (It probably goes with the custom humidification system that's intended to create a suitable climate for pricey paintings and the people who buy them.) They haven't yet hit the market, but seeing as how Minskoff's purchase set a record, they'll probably be expensive. UPDATE: The Journal reported last week that asks will range from $9 to $32 million, presumably for the flats on up to the penthouse.
