While Saitowitz designed buildings, such as 1234 Howard Street, typically feature many shades of grey, reactions to Saitowitz’s modern aesthetic tend to be black or white.
Purchased as new for $899,000 in 2007, the kitchen within 1234 Howard Street #1A4 was rebuilt with Bulthaup cabinetry and high-end appliances, a mid-five figure investment at least, if we’re not mistaken, so it’s not going to be an “apples-to-apples” here:
The two-bedroom loft without doors between rooms, other than the bathrooms, is now back on the market and listed for $1,080,000. As we wrote in 2010 with respect to an apples-to-apples sale in the building: Design matters, whether you like it or not.
