For $18,000/Month, You Can Sleep in a Nest in Soho

New, 8 comments


498 Broome Street owner Goose Mountain LLC faced push-back from the local community board when it tried to add a floor to the five-story building and convert it into six-units plus ground-floor retail space. Board members brought up the artist-in-residence zoning law as part of its opposition to the conversion, with one member saying, "We see it as a way of protecting affordable housing for artists in Soho." Now it appears that Goose Mountain has contented itself to just renovate the existing two units in the building and rent them out for the decidedly unaffordable prices of $18,000 and $14,500 per month. The $18,000/month unit comes furnished, including a nest-like sculptural bed, so there's that.
