Designed by JCJ Architecture, a new housing development will soon take shape in Manhattan’s East Village. Located on an interior lot at 270 East 2nd Street, the property was commissioned by Barrier Free Living, a New York-based non-profit that provides temporary and permanent housing for adults with significant physical disabilities. The new development will provide both housing and support services for survivors of domestic violence with disabilities.

270 East 2nd Street will replace the organization’s existing facility, introducing 65,000 square feet of housing, administration offices, a private garden, and a 9th floor terrace. In total, the development will support 74 individual apartments.

From outside the building, the structure’s unique massing incorporates shifting floor plates that rotate slightly from the ground floor to the roof level.

Construction should kick off in 2019 with an expected completion date by 2021. The total project cost is estimated at $30 million.

  1. Please pardon me for using your space: I think you can see after effect from design on the structure. Look up from street level.

  2. Nice to see that a building that serves this purpose attempts some style, its occupants will need their spirits uplifted every way possible
