The new project will fill one of the three addresses. Nexus Development is heading the project, partnering with Immobiliare Capital and Premier Equities.

Permits Filed for 268 East 7th Street, East Village

A non-descript three-story home is about to meet the wrecking ball for a seven-story replacement at 268 East 7th Street, in the East Village. Building applications show the new structure will have 8,043 square feet of residential space divided between two units, the first spanning from the basement through the second floor, and the second taking up each floor above that. Amador Pons of Grzywinski + Pons Architects is designing, and Wilco Faessen is listed as the developer. Demolition permits for the current occupant were approved in late August, so construction should begin relatively soon.
