Construction on 3 East 3rd Street in the East Village is substantially complete, with occupancy expected in the next few weeks. The six-story building is located just off of the intersection of East 3rd Street and Bowery, on the border of the East Village and The Bowery. YIMBY last reported that the property is designed and developed by Barrett Design.
New photos show the exterior cladding of the mixed-use residential building, which features a contemporary take on International Style design. The floor-to-ceiling glass panels on the western and southern façades are broken up by an array of thin lines, and the sleek overall appearance contrasts distinguishes the building from the surrounding architecture of the street.
Inside, the 65-foot-tall structure contains 17,400 square feet of newly built space, consisting of five floor-through apartments atop a multi-floor retail space of approximately 5,000 square feet. The main lobby is located on the western corner of the lot, slightly recessed from the street.
The nearest subways are the 4 and 6 trains at the Bleecker-Lafayette station and the B, D, F, and M trains at the other major Broadway-Lafayette hub. A number of shops and restaurants are scattered around the address along the Houston Street and Broadway corridors and to the north by Cooper Union and Astor Place.
