Construction has topped out on 141 East Houston Street, a ten-story mixed-use office building on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Designed by Roger Ferris + Partners and developed by East End Capital and K Property Group, the 68,000-square-foot structure will yield office space as well as retail on the ground floor and two cellar levels. The property is located between Forsyth Street to the west and Eldridge Street to the east on a plot that was formerly occupied by the Sunshine Cinema.
East End Capital
Sunshine Cinema in the Lower East Side will soon be demolished to make room for a nine-story office building. Developers East End Capital and K Property Group have secured some $90 million in financing to fulfill their proposal at 141 East Houston Street. According to Crain’s Business, the development partners obtained a $67 million construction loan from CapitalSource and $19 million of mezzanine financing from Canyon Partners.
Crain’s Business reports that Norman Brodsky is expecting to sell the burned-down warehouse located on Williamsburg’s northern waterfront, at 5 North 11th Street, to a pair of developers. Midtown Equities and East End Capital have reportedly signed a contract to purchase the site, but the exact price has yet to be revealed. The property is currently zoned for commercial and manufacturing use; 600,000 buildable square feet is available as-of-right.
