As the three Rivington Street tenements comprising the former Streit’s Matzo Factory collectively await certain doom, its developers are chest-thumping over the eventual arrival of upper-crust living here. It’s over.

Most recently, the four three-bedroom penthouses atop the glass protrusion receive the spotlight. Prices for these apartments start at a meager $3.8 million. Per Unique Homes:

Featuring soaring ceilings of 12 feet 9 inches, the penthouse residences offer custom kitchens, custom-made translucent sliding-glass doors by Rimadesio, and smart home technology that allows for temperature, lighting, and audio control through a single device. Dual outdoor spaces in each apartment include a private terrace directly off the living room, and a private rooftop with gas grill – both of which offer amazing views of New York City.

As previously reported, housing stock at 150 Rivington consists of 45 one-, two-, and three-bedroom condos, including the four aforementioned duplex penthouses on the seventh/eighth floor. Prices are listed at $995,000, $1.7 million, $2.75 million, and $3.8 million respectively. Building amenities include bike room, gym, laundry, storage, and rooftop terrace with outdoor fireplace and kitchen.

The family-owned Streit’s Matzo sold 148-154 Rivington Street to Cogswell Realty in January 2015 for $30.5 million. It had been on and off the market during years prior; the last deal to sell for $25 million fell through in 2008. The company since purchased a new facility in Rockland County, which is the new headquarters for matzo production.

And let’s not forget that that not even the mayor really cared that this institution was departing the city after more than ninety years.
