Construction is progressing swiftly at 211 East 13th Street, which has been dubbed ‘The Jefferson’ by developer CBSK Ironstate – an homage to the Jefferson Theater, which used to sit on-site. Designed by BKSK Architects, the building’s grey-brick facade is quite fitting to the East Village locale, though signage gives a more specific location, putting the development in the ‘North West East Village.’
Since the last construction update on 211 East 13th – from mid-April – the project has topped-out and the cladding has risen, though the development is still lacking any windows. 211 East 13th is a block-through property, and the part facing 14th Street will house two floors of retail – sure to be an upgrade for a stretch of 14th that remains underwhelming.
The Jefferson will have a total of 82 residences, and floor-plans are available on the building’s official website – those listed range from a 536 square foot studio to a 1,233 square foot two bedroom/two bath, though the most impressive is a one bedroom penthouse that comes with a large terrace.
