Construction is nearing completion on 355 Grand Street, a six-story residential building on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Designed by S M Tam Architect and developed by Interboro Realty Management, which purchased the property for $4 million in 2015, the structure will yield an undisclosed number of units and 2,282 square feet of ground-floor retail space. Grand Building Contracting Inc. is the general contractor for the project, which is located on the southwest corner of Grand and Essex Streets.
Recent photos show the final look of the façade since the scaffolding and black netting were dismantled. The envelope is composed of a mix of white and black metal paneling surrounding a grid of large rectangular windows. The northeast corner features a round column running the height of the building, and there are stacks of balconies on both the Grand and Essex Street elevations. Two sections on the upper levels are lined with glass railings for rooftop terraces.
Sidewalk fencing surrounds the property, but should be removed in the coming months as work wraps up on the ground floor.
Here is a screenshot of 355 Grand Street via Google Maps dating back to August 2021 when the façade was still covered.
It was previously reported that the residential component would include both a duplex and triplex unit, each spanning 4,653 square feet. The nearest subways are the F, M, J, and Z trains at the Delancey Street-Essex Street station to the north underneath the Essex Crossing master plan.
YIMBY predicts 355 Grand Street will finally reach completion sometime in early 2023.

Like a square peg in a round hole.
This thing has taken forever to build but glad to see it almost at the finish line
It’s not a bad design, save for the cantilevered outdoor storage spaces.
