Last month we posted that Allen’s East 12th Street apartment got the wrecking ball and featured some shots of the construction going on. EV Grieve picked up on the story and put their hands on the listing for the space at $1,700 a month, and even contacted the Realtor asking if he’d be capitalizing on Allen’s history there, which in the end he decided to do, tho at the time it seems that he’d already had a tenant lined up anyway. The New York Observer have since confirmed the space is now rented for the asking price, and the paint’s hardly dried! Sorry folks.
Incidentally, we highly recommend checking the comments on the EV Grieve posting, especially the one by the squatters who lived there the last two years before the renovation started. We had no idea!!
