Developer Plans 20-Story, 65-Unit Mixed-Use Building At 200 East 21st Street, Gramercy

In the summer of 2015, Chelsea-based Alfa Development entered into contract to acquire the development site spanning 253-261 Third Avenue (a.k.a 200 East 21st Street), in Gramercy, and now the developer is planning a 20-story, 65-unit mixed-use building. The Real Deal reports the project will measure 104,700 square feet in total and will include 7,200 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The rest of the new building will contain 65 condominium units, which will come in one- to four-bedroom layouts. BKSK Architects will be responsible for the design. Reportedly, the developers filed permits for the project, although they have yet to hit public record. Demolition permits, however, are on file for all of the assemblage’s existing buildings. Four three-story structures are to be demolished at 253-259 Third Avenue, and a five-story, 12-unit tenement building at 200 East 21st Street will be razed.

New Renderings, Details For Multi-Building, 223-Unit Residential Conversion Of Cabrini Medical Center, Gramercy

In early 2015, YIMBY revealed renderings of the multi-building, 223-unit residential conversion of the former Cabrini Medical Center, located in Gramercy on the block bound by Second and Third Avenues and East 19th and 20th Streets. Now, Curbed NY has the latest details and renderings of the project, dubbed Gramercy Square, which include slight modifications to the exterior and slightly different unit counts. At 215 East 19th Street, the main 16-story hospital building will get a new façade and will get 130 condominiums, down from 140. The building at 225 East 19th Street will be transformed into 48 residential units, down from 54. The new-construction building at 220 East 20th Street will have eight full-floor units, and the last property at 230 East 20th Street will be converted into 37 units. The entire development will have 12,000 square feet of amenity space. Chetrit Group, Clipper Equity, and Real Property Group are developing, and Woods Bagot is designing.

Two buildings, one destination. That’s what’s going on at 88 & 90 Lexington Avenue, between East 27th and 26th streets in Manhattan’s Gramercy area. Two buildings – 88 Lexington Avenue, built in 1927, and 90 Lexington Avenue, built in 1958 – are being converted into luxury condominiums by HFZ Capital Group, with workshop/apd as designer.

City Seeking Proposals For Mixed-Use Development Site At 124 East 14th Street, Union Square

The city’s Economic Development Corporation has requested proposals to develop the property at 124 East 14th Street, between 3rd and 4th Avenues in Union Square, according to Crain’s. Currently, a two-story commercial building housing a P.C. Richard & Son appliance store occupies the property. The site, however, boasts the potential for 140,000 square feet of residential development or 93,000 square feet of commercial development rights. The city is aiming to have an office building constructed, but the project could end up being residential or mixed-use. Existing retail leases in the building expire in February of next year, the same time proposals are due.
