The Attorney Street Condoplex that Replaced Rock Club Sin-é
Another brick warehouse on Attorney Street is now condos. This latest one having replaced the former home of the Sin-é rock club.
After the better part of a decade on the open market and in development, the luxury newcomer is finally opening at 148-150 Attorney. The six-story condo – on a block formerly dominated by auto-body shops – includes six full-floor units comprising roughly 7,000 square-feet.
Plans for the property were initially filed, and approved, in the summer of 2015 for a six-story condo development designed by Issac & Stern Architects. But the project was shelved and put on the market in November of that year. Two Kings Real Estate snapped up the old rock club for $3.8 million four years ago, and finally realized the original proposal.
Sin-é pinballed around the city during its two-decade run. The venue was founded on St. Mark’s Place in 1989, closed in 1996, had a brief stint in Brooklyn in 2000, then re-opened at 148-150 Attorney Street in 2002. This was to be its final resting place. It was Jeff Buckley who first put the club on the mainstream map after releasing his Live at Sin-é EP in 1993. Other notable performers at the original location were Ben Folds, David Gray, and the October Project.
