Review of 32 East 1st Street by Carter Horsley

This handsome and rather striking, 10-story building at 32 East 1st Street at Second Avenue was built in 2018 by AORE Capital, which purchased the site for $32 million in 2014.  It has 31 condominium apartments. 

It was designed by Combined, a partnership of RSVP Architecture Studio and N-Plus Design Studio. 

The building, which is also known as 24 Second Avenue, replaced a gas station. 

It is one block north of East Houston and two parks.
