Renderings were recently revealed of the 12-story, 24-unit mixed-use building planned at 86 Delancey Street, located on the corner of Orchard Street on the Lower East Side. Now, municipal workers have painted over the elaborate and legal graffiti art installed on the existing two-story commercial building, Mass Appeal reported. The currently property owner, developer David Escava, never gave the city his personal permission to paint over the building, but the previous owner did (10 years ago). The structure received demolition permits September 1. The site’s next occupant is expected to measure 29,437 square feet and will feature retail space and residential units. SWA Architecture is designing, although a completion date has not been announced.

It looks like gears are turning on the 12-story retail and residential project slated for 86 Delancey Street, on the Lower East Side. Fresh demolition plans were filed last week for the existing two-story building where the new apartment building is slated to sit, and now YIMBY has the first look at the new structure’s design.
