Permits have been filed to vertically expand a four-story structure into a 16-story mixed-use building at 232 Broome Street on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Located on the corner of Essex Street and Broome Street, the corner lot is near the East Broadway subway station, serviced by the F train. Soft Stone Development Group is listed as the owner behind the applications.
The proposed 191-foot-tall development will yield 28,941 square feet, with 15,799 square feet designated for residential space and 13,142 square feet for commercial space. The building will have 18 residences, most likely rentals based on the average unit scope of 877 square feet. The concrete-based structure will also have a cellar but no accessory parking.
Rise Architecture is listed as the architect of record.
Demolition permits will likely not be needed as the project calls for an expansion. An estimated completion date has not been announced.
