Images are out now for the redesigned penthouse in 100 Barclay Street, an Art Deco skyscraper adjacent to One World Trade Center on the southern edge of Tribeca. The 32-story building, originally known as the Barclay-Vesey Building, opened in 1927, designed by architect Ralph Walker. During the September 11th attack, the building suffered heavy damage on its southern and eastern facades. Tishman Realty & Construction led its repairs, with William F. Collins responsible for the restoration. The project was finished in three years at a cost of $1.4 billion, whereby all ornamental details and carving motifs were fixed. Since then, the upper floors have been converted to condominiums.
Katz’s new neighbor is rising quickly. Construction at 196 Orchard Street, next to the delicatessen on the Lower East Side, is moving along, though pushing past its original estimated completion date of late 2017. The 11-story structure has topped out, and façade installation has reached the sixth floor.
Construction is wrapping on the eight-story, 32-unit mixed-use building under development at 100 Avenue A, located between East 6th and 7th streets in the East Village. Photos of the progress can be seen in an EV Grieve report. The latest building permits indicate the project encompasses 51,121 square feet. The ground and cellar levels will host a 12,000-square-foot Blink Fitness, followed by 32 residential units. They will be condominiums and should average 950 square feet apiece. Amenities include storage for 46 bikes, plus laundry facilities, storage space, and a rooftop terrace. Ben Shaoul’s Magnum Real Estate Group is the developer and Issac & Stern Architects is behind the architecture. Built In Studio is designing the interiors. Completion is expected later this year.
The Lower East Side is in the midst of a new era of transformation. The Streit’s Matzo Factory has moved, construction of Essex Crossing is humming along, a neighborhood-wide beautification project should reach its goal this summer, and the Lowline is moving forward. The Houston Street corner opposite an iconic deli is also getting a new neighbor, and now there’s a new look at that project.
Earlier this year, YIMBY revealed renderings of Magnum Real Estate Group and Real Estate Equities’ 10-story, 83-unit mixed-use building planned at 196 Orchard Street, on the Lower East Side. Now that demolition is complete on the site’s old commercial buildings, excavation work appears imminent, per Bowery Boogie. A pile driver has appeared on-site as well as other excavation equipment. Once complete, the building will also have 13,463 square feet of retail space on the ground floors, and Ismael Leyva is designing.
