118 East 1st Street Begins Sales for Four Townhouse-Style Duplexes in All-Electric Building in Manhattan’s East Village

Sales have begun for 118 East 1st Street, a collection of four townhouse-style duplexes with direct, keyed elevator access and private outdoor spaces in the heart of Manhattan’s East Village. Brown Harris Stevens Development Marketing is handling exclusive marketing and sales, with Anna Shagalov and Bo Poulsen leading sales.

Sustainably built with energy efficiency in mind, 118 East 1st Street was developed and designed by Freyer Collaborative Architects. The building features a striking modernist façade in Jet Mist granite, and Juliet balconies with irrigated gardens adorn each residence. A sunlit staircase connects the public and private floors. Residents will enjoy virtual doorman service and dedicated storage.

“118 East 1st Street was designed to take advantage of the unusual, unobstructed views over neighboring historic districts, providing sunrises over the East Village and sunsets over Soho,” said Warren Freyer of Freyer Collaborative Architects. “Meticulous attention to detail and commitment to sustainability make the building a standout in design not only for the neighborhood, but also the city.”


With three or four exposures in each three- or four- bedroom home, light abounds. Homes are complete with six-inch European white oak flooring, recessed oak baseboards, museum quality walls, and flexible lighting. Spacious half-floor primary suites with room for seating, exercise, or office areas are offered in each residence, as is a vent-less fireplace with Tundra Gray stone surround and mantle.

Windowed kitchens feature custom European oak cabinetry by Alta Cucine and an Artemis Greek marble countertop and backsplash with subtle gray veining as well as a custom-made stainless steel sink with disposal. Appliances include a Bertazzoni 36-inch induction range and vented hood; paneled Miele 36-inch French door refrigerator; integrated Miele dishwasher; Bosch drawer microwave; and dual-zone French door wine refrigerator.

Homes feature primary baths with heated floors, a custom wood, dual vanity by Alta; Warm, soft hues abound with a Siberian Marble slab feature wall; large format Woodgrain Marble walls paired with Siberian Marble Herringbone flooring.  Italian fixtures and accessories by New Form in brushed stainless steel. The walk-in shower features a linear drain, and there is a sculptural handcrafted freestanding tub by Wetstyle as well as a Toto toilet. Secondary baths feature similar fixtures and appliances, as well as a Kohler bathtub or walk-in shower.

Each home features a dedicated laundry closet with Samsung washer and dryer as well as a concealed trash chute.


The all-electric building was designed with sustainability in mind. Exterior and interior insulation is based on Net-Zero energy principles. MERV-13 filters ensure continuous fresh, filtered air and energy saving heat exchange, while high-performance German Schuco windows and doors provide thermal insulation and sound attenuation. The building also features an e-bike and charging station.


Pricing begins at $5,450,000 for a three-bedroom residence spanning the fourth and fifth floors.
