The first DOB filings are up for a new project on Clinton Street; EV Grieve spotted renderings for the project last month, and the permits give the first indication that plans are now progressing. The developer is Icon Realty, and the architect of record is Isaac & Stern.
50 Clinton Street will be primarily residential, with 1,836 square feet of commercial space confined to the development’s ground floor; the remainder of the project will total 37,868 square feet, which will be divided between 37 residences. The first floor will have three apartments, with six apartments on floors two through six, and four units on the penthouse level, which will also include ‘recreation space.’
Isaac & Stern’s design for the project is respectful of its Lower East Side surrounds, utilizing a simple brick facade and large casement windows; 50 Clinton Street will blend perfectly into the neighborhood, and its appearance will hopefully spark similar historicist-minded construction in the Lower East, where modern developments are often on the garish side of the aesthetic spectrum.
While demolition would appear imminent, the LoDown NY reported that one retail tenant intends to maintain their lease, though given the latest round of permits, a buy-out would seem likely.
No completion date for the new 50 Clinton Street has been announced.
