Permits have been filed for a 13-story mixed-use building at 359 Second Avenue in Gramercy, Manhattan. Located on the corner of East 21st Street and Second Avenue, the lot is about five blocks from the 23rd Street subway station, serviced by the 6 train. Silverback Development is listed as the owner behind the applications.

The proposed 145-foot-tall development will yield 97,193 square feet, with 63,943 square feet designated for residential space, 27,492 square feet for community facilities, and 5,758 square feet for commercial use. The building will have 53 residences, most likely condos based on the average unit scope of 1,206 square feet. The concrete-based structure will also have a cellar.

The rendering above reveals a white stone façade with floor-to-ceiling windows, a few setbacks, and Juliet balconies.

Issac & Stern Architects is listed as the architect of record.

Demolition permits were filed in August of last year. An estimated completion date has not been announced.

  1. Students say after me, we love development. Students say before me, they say: Thank you. (Hello New York YIMBY)

  2. Credits for rendering go to Picksell Studio:

  3. Would love my company to do garbage carting…maybe I’ll get lucky…

  4. So far this Ross and Co construction has failed to comply with NYC building regulations. They often start work prior to 7am and have lately worked until past 6pm most nights. The noise and bright lights when working past 6 pm has been disruptive to the entire block not to mention the two schools directly next door. The site has also been doing early morning work on Saturday’s as well. I’m looking forward to hearing back from the NYC Department of Buildings as they hold Ross and Associates accountable.
