Back in the spring, something occurred at the Keck-Gottschalk-Keck Apartments to arouse suspicion among our readers: all three co-op units in the Keck + Keck modernist gem were on the market together. Thankfully, the seller of the top-floor unit was mediating the banter on our comments page. He let it be known that the building wasn't falling apart (just look at the hulking thing!) and that everyone had real reasons for letting go. He also mentioned that they were in the process of converting to condos, for the sake of financing. A few months down the road, the one unit that we never blogged about is the only one still listed. Hitting the market in February, the ground floor 5-bed co-op is the largest by virtue of a
partially finished basement step-back. It also has more bedrooms than the other units. There's much that's identical, though, like the fireplace, window orientation, pocket kitchen, and system of indirect lighting. A large back yard and deck compensate pretty nicely for the absence of a balcony. The seller must be pretty sure of the ask: it's been $690K since listing.
