Thread: 211 East 51st Street

  1. #1

    Default 211 East 51st Street

    Rental buidling at 211 Eas5 51st Street under contract to be sold 23-MAY-06

    The 13-story building at 211 East 51st Street is under contract to be sold by Uned Associates LLC of which Unni Edelman is president.
    The white-brick building was erected in 1958 and contains about 85 rental apartments.

    The property was being offered by Eastern Consolidated with an asking price of $42,500,000, which includes the 76,500-square-foot existing building and approximately 10,000 square feet of the building’s unused and developable air rights.

    In conjunction with the offering, preliminary architectural plans were developed for the conversion of the building into condominiums with a new façade and added floors.

    Peter Hausburg of Eastern Consolidated, however, indicated to CityRealty.Com today that the buyer now in contract for the property most likely will not dramatically alter the building, but would convert it to condominiums.

    The building has two retail spaces with a total of about 5,000 square feet that are now vacant and a third space of about 4,500 square feet that is leased to a spa in the basement. Mr. Hausburg said that a studio apartment has been committed to an existing tenant, but added that this arrangement could be “mitigated.”

    The mid-block building has discrete air-conditioners, some terraces and some angled corner windows.

    Sadly, some very nice little buildings will be razed for this forgettable tower."

    There appear to be about four small, townhouse style buildings on 3rd and
    51st. This building seems to be located on this corner. How do you know that nothing will be razed?

    Are you retarded? I have lived in NY practically my entire life. Ergo, I have, in fact, "been to that part of town."

    So jeffpark is right, there's no teardown.

    As it is,the building's a period piece,though not very ditinguished. As proposed for the future, it will be an interesting set of variations on an antiquated theme: the step-back style of Fifties zoning. The new detailing is crisp and of this time, and the attenuation of the top produces interesting and unfamiliar massing for a building of this type.

    Future architecture mavens will probably find it interesting whether or not they can read the building's history in its form. I'm looking forward to this one; I think it will be quite nice.

    I see that now that the photo and the story have been posted. I initially looked on google, and the address seemed to show the corner of 51st and
    3rd where four or five nice little buildings stand.

    I hate those stumpy 50's wedding cakes on 3rd in the high 40's and low 50's. They are truly abysmal -- just low budget curtain wall with awful looking mid-window operable panels.

    Hopefully at some point some of these buildings' owners will do a reclad like the Hippodrome and my walk home from the subway will be a little easier on the eyes

    They're the right age to be hated: about 50. We always hate typical buildings of that age; Penn Station was that age when it was hated into oblivion.

    These are no Penn Station, but thirty years from now when they've grown rare in their original state, some folks will start wanting to preserve the survivors.

    Maybe it's just nostalgia, and maybe you'll feel it too --from all those walks to the subway.
