As the Moise Safra Cultural Center approaches full completion on Manhattan’s Upper East Side, YIMBY has an exclusive look at renderings of the forthcoming cultural hub’s exterior and interiors. Located at 130 East 82nd Street, the 14-story building will include 73,000 square feet of religious and recreational facilities, event spaces, dining halls, and office suites.

Set to open this Autumn, the center is named in memory of Jewish philanthropist Moise Safra, who passed away in 2014. In his honor, the facilities will cater largely to Orthodox Jews of Syrian ancestry.

The center will eventually host a full calendar of events including guest lectures, private weddings, galas, and traditional religious programming. Event and religious facilities include two synagogues, a banquet hall, two outdoor terraces, and other smaller-scale rooms. Other communal spaces include multiple social lounges, cafes, a library, and demonstration kitchens. Fitness components include a pool, a gym, and yoga studios.

PBDW Architects is responsible for the building’s design.

  1. Please pardon me for using your space: Stunning again.

  2. Where’s the Syrian influence?
    Also void of Jewish theme.
    Research and imagination would’ve sorted it out

  3. How do I share this article in an email? I am not interested in sharing thru Facebook or REddit. Please LMK.
    Thanks,
    Judy
