Back in August of 2015, news broke that the city was moving forward with plans to develop affordable housing at the Elizabeth Street Garden, located at 211 Elizabeth Street (a.k.a. 21 Spring Street), in NoLIta. Now, Curbed NY reports the Department of Housing Preservation and Development is envisioning a seven-story, 60-to-75-unit residential building with retail space. The building would take up roughly 15,000 square feet on the 20,265 square-foot lot, and the units, which would be geared towards seniors, will average between 800 and 900 square feet apiece. The city plans to launch a Request for Proposals (RFP) in the spring and a developer will hopefully be selected by the end of the year. At that point, the project would require approval via the Uniform Land Use Review Procedure (ULURP). Construction is tentatively expected to begin in 2018 for completion in 2020.
