It's been about a year since developer Edward Minskoff paid $26.6 million for an art gallery and the commercial lofts above it on East 12th Street with the goal of turning it into six condos. Renderings for the conversion surfaced last fall, and sales launched soon after, with asking prices in the ballpark of $9 to $32 milliontowards the latter for the four full-floor apartments, and towards the former for the townhouse and duplex penthouse that are part of the project.
There are currently three apartments on the market and one in contract. One of the full-floor "flats" has been furnished into a model unit, offering up the first real photographs of the apartments, which feature barrel-vaulted ceilings, chevron-patterned wood floors, and marble "reclaimed from the original Museum of Modern Art facade." (It surfaces as part of the detailing in the bathroom.) Art prodigy and Heidi Klum-dater Vito Schnabel chose the art; given the works' value, it makes sense that all the apartments come with a controllable humidification system.
