56 Walker Street is making its comebackfor real this time. The 18,000-square-foot 1866 Tribeca building was snatched by developer Six Sigma for $18 million in December, following a failed attempt at market and subsequent foreclosure brought on by 2008's economic downturn. Now, Lee has tapped superbroker and Million Dollar Listing persona Fredrik Eklund and his partner John Gomes to market the new 56 Walker Street's uber high-tech apartments. TRD got the scoop on what's coming:
Light switches will be replaced by iPod touch screens that control several functions in each room. Handles on kitchen cabinets and drawers have been replaced by touch sensors that activate motors. And rain sensors automatically close windows when precipitation is detected. Well that's pretty fancy. No pricing has been announced for the surely costly 3,000- to 5,000-square-foot apartments. The building is expected to be complete by the end of 2014 and come to market within a year.
