Permits have been filed for a 14-story, affordable housing apartment building at 302 East 2nd Street in East Village, Manhattan. Located between Avenue C and Avenue D, the vacant lot is just off major thoroughfare East Houston Street. The Delancey Street subway station, serviced by the F train, is ten city blocks away. New York City’s Housing Preservation and Development agency is responsible for the applications.
The proposed 143-foot tall project will yield 43,698 square feet, with 36,845 square feet designated for residential space and 1,008 square feet for community facilities. It will have 44 residences with an average unit scope of 837 square feet. The steel-based structure will also have a rear yard 38 feet long. A rendering from Leroy Street Studio Architecture shows a facade with a mix of red and sand colored metal panels, as well as a landscaped rooftop.
Marc Turkel of Leroy Street Studio Architecture is responsible for the design.
Demolition permits will likely not be needed as the lot is vacant. An estimated completion date has not been announced.
