I thought these were not allowed anymore or, rather, not being built anymore? I still see workers rushing around with their "flex" walls.
>>At Stuy Town, once the hotspot for illicit wall activity, temporary walls have in many cases become sanctioned — and now cost a premium.
One-bedroom units, ranging from 707 and 790 square feet, cost from $3,138 to $3,559 a month, according to the complex's website. Meanwhile, the same sized units, listed as a “one-bedroom flex” where an extra wall is already installed — with windows in it to bring light to the newly sectioned-off living room — are marketed as costing $3,421 to $3,942 a month.
The flex apartments likely helped the complex’s bottom line, according to a Real Deal analysis from November, which found about a third of its market-rate units were marketed as the pricier flex apartments.
Representatives from Stuy Town and the Grayson declined to comment on the convertible layouts.<<
