Last September, YIMBY reported on new building applications for 112 East 11th Street, in the heart of the East Village, which is being developed by the Lightstone Group. EVGrive posted a preliminary image for the site back in February, and now, we have the first full rendering for the project, which is being designed by Stonehill & Taylor Architects.

The site is located between Third and Fourth Avenues, and replaces five tenement buildings, which were fully demolished earlier this year. The hotel will span 78,361 square feet, totaling 311 rooms, for an average size of about 250 square feet. The small rooms will naturally be targeted towards millennials.

Besides the rooms, the building will feature a restaurant and lounge in the cellar, a fitness center on the second floor, and a restaurant on the top level.

The new Moxy has been fairly controversial, and neighborhood NIMBYs opposed the demolition of the old tenements, however, they were ultimately unsuccessful in getting the LPC to act. In any case, the building will be substantially more attractive than most new hotels in Manhattan, with industrial-style casement windows that lack the PTAC units that proliferate across so many low-budget developments.

The one downside to the project is its envelope, which will be withdrawn from the sidewalk, breaking the block’s street-wall. This is common amongst most new hotels in Manhattan, especially in the blocks of the Garment District, and it would probably be wise of City Planning to change zoning to prevent these kinds of designs, as they detract from existing urbanity.

As YIMBY previously reported, the total acquisition costs for the site was $127 million, and the plans also use air rights from a building at 85 East 10th Street, which is not going to be demolished. Completion of the Moxy East Village is expected by next year.

    I can’t hate development. (Can’t you? – and I’m not side of NIMBY)

    you demolished 5 buildings….what method did you use to force the tenants out?? that’s hundreds of people who probably had
    nowhere else to go….eld timers with rent stabilization….people who lived there for decades…how many are now living on
    street corners???

  3. How were they allowed to build that high? Seems very out of context for the neighborhood
