The Bridges, Impressive New East Harlem Condo

I've been driving up Third Avenue for years making a right turn at 2 vacant lots on the East Side of 123rd Street to access the Triboro Bridge. For years I wondered about the potential for the lots on the North and South side of the Street and wondered what a difference it would make if the lots were developed. It finally has happened and fortunately for the entire neighborhood, it has happened in impressively tasteful fashion. I have not been in the building yet, but have one of my agents has shown it several times and she is absolutely in love with it. She tells me that the apartments are spacious and that they are tastefully appointed. Prices are terrific starting at $532/ft for a 1700 Sf 3 bedroom (905k). From the exterior, the twin buildings look like they could easily fit in on the Upper East Side. The faux limestone base evokes the New York of old when more attention was paid to aesthetics and appearance. In short, this looks like a high quality building, priced to move, and best of all transforms blight to light. More details can be found at http://www.thebridgesnyc.com/. The building is handled by Katherine Gauthier of Elliman.
