Construction is nearing completion on The Grand Mulberry, a seven-story mixed-use building at 185 Grand Street in Little Italy. Designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and developed by Be-Aviv and Nexus Development Group, the property will yield 20 residential units above ground-floor retail space and the Italian American Museum. The project is located at the corner of Mulberry and Grand Streets.

One week ago, YIMBY reported on the filing of demolition permits for the future Italian American Museum and associated residential building coming to Manhattan’s Little Italy. Today, we get a chance to look at new renderings, revealing an innovative Frank Stella-inspired white-wall interior. Oved Group and Nexus Development Group will be responsible for the development.
Demolition permits have been filed for the home of the Italian American Museum, who operate out of 185, 187, and 189 Grand Street in Little Italy, Manhattan. However, this is not a disappointment for the institution. They had been trying to sell their current location for years, on the condition that they are provided with rent-free space within the replacement. They were finally successful in February 2017, when their buildings were purchased for $14.8 million by Oved Group and Nexus Building Development Group.
