Green Co-op Apartment at 170 Norfolk Street Sells for $565,000

An environmentally friendly green co-op apartment at 170 Norfolk Street on the border of the East Village and the Lower East Side / Loisada just sold for $565,000, a slight drop from the apartment’s original $599,000 list price.

The apartment has approximately 500 sq. ft., and — here’s the pièce de résistance — the rights to an incredible private vegetable garden. The listing said that the apartment also comes with “plans for solar panels to generate 100% of apartment’s energy.”

  • A water filter
  • Wind energy powered electricity
  • Biofuel for heat and hot water; and

This sale represents a new record for the highest price ever paid for a co-op at 170 Norfolk. Before this sale, the highest price ever paid for a co-op in the building was $530,000, the price paid by the current seller for the same apartment in June 2005.
