Construction appears to have been completed on the seven-story, 23-unit mixed-use project at 227 Grand Street, located on the corner of Elizabeth Street in Chinatown. The project is a redevelopment of three existing commercial structures that stood two or three stories in height. The expanded structure contains 6,929 square feet of commercial space, consisting of retail on the ground and second floors, in addition to office space also on the second floor. The residential units, across floors three through seven, should average 574 square feet apiece, indicative of rentals.
