American Felt Building Condominium Union Square NY Condos

The American Felt Building located at 114 East 13th Street is a
pre-war doorman condominium loft building.  Located between Fourth
Avenue and Third Avenue on 13th Street, the American Felt Building
stands as a unique piece of Manhattan real estate in what would be
described as one of the most lively and sought after area's of New
York City.

Originally built in the early 1900's, the building was named simply
after what it manufactured.  It provided the "felt" used for a number
of industrial uses, most notably in the manufacturing of the nearby
located Steinway Piano Company.  A most interesting note, the facade
of the building was adorned with "Sheep Heads." In homage to the
animal that helped the American Felt Company manufacture what it was
well known for.  These sheep heads are still present today and
contribute to the historic significance of the building.

The American Felt Building is a 12 story tall building made up of
approximately 40 individualized condominium apartments.  Because of
the manufacturing history, the units have a number of extremely
desirable features including very tall ceilings, massive windows, open
layouts, and very sound construction.  Upon entering the building you
will enter the lobby and instantly feel the voluminous space that
comes with living in the building.  The doorman and condominium
feature make this an excellent investment property also for any
potential investors.

Converted to a Condominium in the late 1980s, the American Felt
Building was one of the first to pioneer the condominium development
in the Union Square area.  The Union Square neighborhood has easily
become a center of restaurants, shopping and entertainment.  The
location is near multiple subway stops and universities.  The American
Felt Building is a condo near NYU, among many other such as Condos
near Parsons, and Condos near SVA.

Pricing can and will vary as the loft spaces have been configured
differently over the years.  Some units will have balcony's, but
consistent features will include washer/dryer in the apartment, loft
spaces within the apartment itself, open layouts that are ready for
your personal configuration.

I am always blown away by the prices up there! I know it is New York City but imagine what you could get down here with that money................I once said that to somebody and they reminded me of all that NYC has to offer that we don't have down I guess it balances out.
