Privileged Parking

  • Amanda Millin

A former Hertz parking garage now offers some of Greenwich Village’s most desirable condos. Together the developers at DHA Capital and Continental Properties and the architects at CetraRuddy remodeled the 83-year-old building with contemporary touches, which include a four-story glass addition at the top, while remaining true to the original early ’30s design. Only several months after construction began at 12 East 13th Street, five of the building’s eight total units went on the market in November. The highlight listing is a $30.5 million penthouse, which occupies the top three glass-enclosed floors. The 5,700-square-foot penthouse features four bedrooms with en suite bathrooms, solid white oak floors, custom vanities made from East Indian laurel wood, and views of the city skyline from every room. Additional amenities include a private elevator, sauna, formal dining room, two terraces, and a showcase glass-and-wood stairwell. Beneath the penthouse, each of the seven residences occupies an entire floor (a nod to the layouts in New York’s first apartment buildings), which allows for spacious loft-style interiors and large windows.

The other four units that are currently for sale range from $7.5 million to $18.95 million and offer three to four bedrooms. The last three units are expected to hit the market early next year. All residences come with at least one private storage unit, 24-hour concierge service, fitness-room access, and one space in the building’s new robotic parking system, which enables owners to retrieve their vehicle in about 30 seconds via their smartphones.
