Over the past year, the former four-story commercial building at 152 Elizabeth Street, located on the corner of Kenmare Street in Little Italy, has been demolished down to its foundation.

The penthouse will feature two roof decks. The apartments, condominiums, will range from one- to four-bedrooms, averaging 3,514 square feet apiece. There will also be a seven-car automated parking garage in the cellar. Osaka, Japan-based Tadao Ando Architects & Associates is the design architect and Greenwich Village-based Gabellini Sheppard Associates is the executive architect. Sumaida + Khurana is the developer.
