DHA Capital has filed plans to expand and convert a parking garage into apartments at 75 Kenmare Street, on the corner of Mulberry Street in Little Italy.

The Chelsea-based developer entered contract on the 34,000-square-foot garage for $50 million over the summer, but the deal hasn’t hit public records yet. The firm had originally planned a 68,000-square-foot residential project, but alteration plans reveal that the building will be only 55,484 square feet.

The three-story structure will grow to seven stories and 75 feet tall. Its 35 apartments will spread across 47,362 square feet, yielding spacious average units measuring 1,353 square feet. There will be 8,100 square feet of retail on the first floor, followed by seven units each on floors two through four, six units on the fifth floor, four units on the sixth floor, and two units on the seventh, plus a penthouse duplex.

The cellars will remain a commercial parking garage, with a total of 150 parking spaces. The building will also have a fitness center on the second floor, bike storage on a few floors, private roof decks for the top floor units, and a shared roof terrace.

Back in June, DHA informed The Real Deal that units will be similar to those at 50 Clinton Street, a 37-unit condo conversion with “efficient units sized around 1,000 square feet.”

Architect Andre Kikoski, based on Varick Street in Hudson Square, will oversee the conversion.
