Permits have been filed for a 30-story mixed-use building at 232 East Broadway on the Lower East Side, Manhattan. Located between Clinton Street and Montgomery Street, the lot is one block east of the East Broadway subway station, serviced by the F train. Round Square Development is listed as the owner behind the applications.

The proposed 333-foot-tall development will yield 84,271 square feet, with 75,473 square feet designated for residential space. The building will have 54 residences, most likely condos based on the average unit scope of 1,397 square feet. The steel-based structure will also have a cellar and a 30-foot-long rear yard.

YIMBY last reported on the 323 East Broadway site in April of this year, revealing renderings released by S4Architecture that depicted a single tower design for the project, then being developed by The Ascend Group. Now that it appears the owners have changed, it is not clear if the design has as well, as the same rendering is available on the Round Square Development website. SLCE Architects is listed as the architect of record.

Demolition permits will likely not be needed as the lot is vacant. The low-rise nursing home that once sat on the site has been demolished. An estimated completion date has not been announced.

    This is a rather good update of brutalist design. Hopefully the plantings will happen and be maintained as shown in the rendering.

  3. Really ugly and out of scale. Not sure why they want to be developing more condos since there are thousands of units in the LES that go unsold.

  4. Can you please do more research. The nursing home was not demolished, another small building was demolished. I think the nursing home had some sort of landmark rendering so it could not be demolished. I think this building looks out of sort near a parking lot and the nursing home building.

  5. The Nursing home was demolished……yes,

  6. The drawing only shows a 25 story building, but the article says 30.
