YIMBY went to check in on 226-232 East Broadway, the site of a 26-story residential building on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Designed by Space 4 Architecture, aka S4Architecture, and developed by The Ascend Group, the project is rendered with an irregular pattern of windows, perimeter walls, and landscaped balconies and setbacks.
Photos show the rectangular site, which is located on the northeastern corner of East Broadway and Clinton Street, cleared and awaiting the start of excavation. Scraps of tangled metal and brick rubble are scattered about the plot.
Meanwhile, the adjacent eight-story brick building, 228 East Broadway, is undergoing exterior renovation. A construction hoist is placed on the northern elevation and workers are prepping the pre-war structure before the rise of 226-232 East Broadway, which will directly abut its southern profile. The juxtaposition of the new building with 228 East Broadway and the surrounding homogenous red brick structures will make for an interesting architectural contrast.
The closest subway from the address is the F train at the East Broadway station, at the corner of East Broadway and Rutgers Street.
Start and completion dates for 226-232 East Broadway have not announced.
