154 Attorney opens sales office
By Carter Horsley   |   From Archives Wednesday, June 29, 2005
A sales office has recently opened at 100 Riverton Street, down the street from the very impressive new THOR (the Hotel on Riverington), for another new and modern building on the Lower East Side at 154 Attorney Street.

Construction has started on the 7-story building and is expected to be completed early next year. It is adjacent to a building under renovation at the corner of Stanton Street that houses the Sim-?ar across Stanton Street from the extremely handsome red-brick, 6-story building for 13 special needs families at 189 Stanton that was designed several years ago by James McLullar & Associates Architects and is one of the handsomest mid-rise buildings in the city.

154 Attorney Street, which is half a block south of East Houston Street, has been designed by Kitnicki/Bernstein Architects and will be notable for the large bright red portion of its Attorney Street facade. The red portion takes up most of the second through the fifth floors of the building that has a setback at the sixth floor.

In addition to its clean, modern lines, the building, which will have 32 units, ranging in size from studios to garden duplexes to four-bedroom penthouses, will be notable for its inclusion of six rooftop cabanas with running water that are available for sale to its residents.

In addition to the cabanas, the building has a common roof deck, basement storage, high ceilings, a fitness room, and an attended large lobby with video intercom. Apartments will have GE Profile stainless steel appliances and Wenge finish cabinets, six-foot Zuma soaking tubs.

Norman Kaish and Leonard Taub of the Kaish & Taub Development Group Corporation are the developers.

Initial prices start at about $460,000 for a 525-sq. ft.-studio to about $1,400,000 for a one-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath unit with 1,583 sq. ft.
