We recently checked out Unit 38C, the self-proclaimed "most exquisite" 2-bedroom unit in the St. Regis. A similar 2-bed unit just one floor below hit the market yesterday for a similar price of $2.6 million, which makes a total of six units currently working the MLS. That brings us to Unit 31E, the sad but awesome grand-daddy of the bunch, a 2,522 square foot 3-bedroom that's been languishing since February 2009. The expansive condo is a "complete redesign of a rarely available (southeast) corner E residence." It shows: the wood treatment brings out your inner pipe-smoking sophisticate, and the takeout window in that bathroom wall makes for a sexy (but classy; always classy) bedroom peepshow. All this for the low, low price of $4,800,000. If you can get past the $2,575 HOAs, then we're on the right track.
