Façade installation has begun on 282-286 Grand Street, a seven-story residential building on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Developed by Marc Straus, who has owned the site since the 1970s, the 23,500-square-foot structure will yield 25 rental apartments spread across 22,500 square feet and 1,000 square feet of commercial space. First Standard Construction is the general contractor for the property, which is located between Forsyth and Eldridge Streets.
Progress has been steady since the reinforced concrete superstructure topped out in July, and exterior work is now taking shape behind scaffolding and black netting.
The bottom half of the superstructure is in the process of being enclosed with insulation around the future grid of windows.
The rendering in the main photo shows the structure clad in gray brick and floor-to-ceiling windows, with a massing composed of three conjoined rectangular volumes. The central rectangular outline features sloped walls along the inside of its framework and a ledge to display commercial signage over the ground floor. A couple of setbacks are positioned on the upper levels and will be topped with outdoor terraces.
Amenities at 282-286 Grand Street include a fitness center, bike storage, and a communal recreational space.
The nearest subways to the property are the B and D trains at the Grand Street station to the west at the corner of Grand and Chrystie Streets. The A, C F, M, J, and Z trains are also nearby to the east along Delancey Street below the Essex Crossing development.
The project has a completion date of spring 2023.
