MePa may not have slaughterhouses anymore (offal is so unfashionable), but 345 Meatpacking is killing it in sales.
The DDG Partners condo, which made a splash in August with its Yayoi Kusama-designed construction netting, is almost 25 percent sold less than two weeks after its October 26th sales launch.
Of 37 units in the 12-story building, 9 are in contract. The nine available units currently listed on the official site range from $1.7 million for a one-bedroom suite measuring 1,117 square feet to $6.35 million for a three-bedroom penthouse measuring 2,093 square feet.
DDG Partners, acting as developer, architect, builder and interior designer, lavished 345 Meatpacking with top-(artisan)-shelf materials: handmade Kolumba brick from Denmark for the facade, bronze-clad windows fabricated in Italy, white oak floors from Austria, Moroccan ceramic tile for the bathroom floors and custom Lindsey Adelman lighting, so fashion plates can look their very best, even after a full night’s revelry. Amenities include a private fitness center with “oak floors, timber joists and board-formed concrete” (nothing makes us feel better than sweating all over expensive materials), bicycle storage, private storage for purchase and a landscaped roof terrace with panoramic views of the Hudson River, Meatpacking District and downtown Manhattan (think of all the Instagram likes you’ll get!).
