259 East 7th Street, known as the Flowerbox Building, is between Avenue C and D in the East Village. The 8 apartments were developed by Seth Tapper and are clad in an exterior of glass and metal with 18” self irrigating flower boxes across each floor. The Flowerbox Building has 2 apartments per floor with 12’0” high ceilings, radiant heat flooring, speakers in every room, French doors in the living room, and doorman service. Notably, Tapper’s building is the subject of a documentary for its unique design in an area with many centuries old brownstones.
Two-bedroom, two-bath apartments range in size from 1,539 square feet to 2,780 square feet and one has 1,500 square feet of outdoor space, another has 84 square feet of outdoor space, and one has 86 square feet of outdoor space. Two of the two-bedroom-two-bath units have no outdoor space. There are two three-bedroom, three-bath apartments with 2,576 square feet each and two balconies with a total of 168 square feet. The penthouse has five bedrooms and five baths and 6,665 square feet and 1,500 square feet of outdoor space.
Kitchens have Veneta Cucine cabinetry, 6-burner Viking ranges, SubZero refrigerators, Bosch dishwashers and wine coolers. Bathrooms have Jado faucets and Kohler sinks and toiler and a Neptune soaking tub.
We’re pretty obsessed with the building, and so are many others, but we think it’s best to let the pictures speak for themselves.
