Located near the foot of the Williamsburg Bridge between Pitt Street and Ridge Street, the 80,200-square-foot project is designed by ODA Architecture and developed by New Empire Real Estate Development, with Shiming Tam Architect as the architect of record.

YIMBY went to check out 3 St. Mark’s Place in the East Village, where an eight-story mixed-use office building is set to rise. Approved by the New York City’s Landmarks Preservation Commission in the summer of 2019, the nearly 54,000-square-foot project is designed by Morris Adjmi Architects and developed by Real Estate Equities Corporation. In addition to construction of the new structure at the intersection of St. Mark’s Place and Third Avenue, plans also call for exterior alterations to an adjacent historic landmark at 4 Saint Mark’s Place, known as the Hamilton Holly House.

Designed by HOK and co-developed by APF Properties, Kenneth Aschendorf and Berndt Perl with Stuart Milstein of Drake Street Properties, the commercial property is located at the intersection of Varick Street and Charlton Street, near the entrance to the Holland Tunnel.
