Construction is complete on 208 Delancey Street, a 12-story residential building on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Designed by ODA New York and developed by New Empire Corporation, the 85,000-square-foot structure yields 85 condominium units in studio to three-bedroom layouts with sales and marketing led by Compass. The property is located by the corner of Delancey Street and Pitt Street.
At the time of YIMBY’s last update in February, the structure stood completely covered in black netting and scaffolding as exterior work progressed. This has since been disassembled, revealing the finished look of the flowing light brick and bronze-colored trim work and paneling. The design features numerous cantilevered balconies with curved corners that protrude out toward the sidewalk from the ribbon windows. The multi-story mechanical bulkhead is enclosed in a white corrugated metal screen that matches the rounded geometry of the building below.
The main entrance is located along Delancey Street, surrounded by landscaping and ground-floor frontage showing a miniature model of the building.
Condominiums are finished with eight-inch-wide European oak plank wood floors, oversized energy-efficient triple-pane windows, in-unit Miele washers and dryers, entry via smart lock technology, individually controlled multi-zoning heating and cooling systems, and curved corner windows and private outdoor terraces in select units. Kitchens come with custom oak cabinetry and integrated sensor LED lighting and soft self-closing hinges, off-white lacquer lower cabinetry, white jazz marble countertops and backsplashes, a marble island and waterfall in select units, and under-mounted stainless steel sinks with Hansgrohe faucets. Other elements include 30-inch-wide refrigerators, gas cooktops with four to five burners and a concealed vent, a dishwasher, a microwave, and oven or speed oven by Miele. Wine coolers are found in select homes.
Primary bedrooms come complete with custom walnut vanity with honed Blue de Savoie marble countertops, a medicine cabinet with integrated LED lighting, honed Blue de Savoie marble walls, radiant heated honed Blue de Savoie marble floors, Waterworks fixtures and accessories with matte nickel metal finishes, marble-clad walk-in showers with a niche shelf and shower system, and a Duravit water closet.
