Unit 3 at 180 East 93rd Street: NYC’s Most Expensive Green Rental?

Investors are offering the third-floor unit at one of the Upper East Side’s greenest condominiums for $23,000 per month.

180 East 93rd Street

Last month, French investors purchased the third-floor unit at the Barry Rice-designed 180 East 93rd Street condominium development for around $5 million, and are now offering it for rent at $23,000 per month, according to the Real Deal. The investors, who purchase New York City luxury apartments and then lease them,  “look for unique properties with stand-out features; homes that are ‘really interesting – nothing normal.’”

We wrote about the 180 East 93rd Street project just as it broke ground back in the summer of 2008; developed by Greystone Property, the nine-unit development sits between Lexington and Third Avenues and features a number of green design elements, including a geothermal heating and cooling system, a graywater system, interiors furnished with recycled-content and low-VOC materials and finishes, Energy Star-rated appliances, bike storage, and efficient insulation.

The 3000-square-foot unit – which is full-floor and is serviced by a private elevator – features 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms; 2 of the bedrooms have their own Juliet balconies. According to the Real Deal, the unit has never been lived in before; CNBC’s Melissa Francis and her husband purchased the building’s second-floor unit last summer for $4.2 million.
