In an effort to bolster sales at One Manhattan Square, Extell Development Company has unveiled an acre of private outdoor amenities designed by West 8 Urban Design and Landscape Architecture. Located in the Two Bridges section of Manhattan’s Lower East Side, the neighborhood’s signature tower stands 800 feet above the East River and now comprises 100,000 square feet of total amenity space.
Lower East Side
A large consortium of non-profit and private developers has revealed extensive proposals to construct two new affordable housing buildings on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. If the proposals and required zoning amendments are approved, the new structures would break ground at 151-165 Broome Street within an existing mixed-use complex referred to as Seward Park Extension.
Full demolition permits have been filed for 63 Pitt Street on the Lower East Side. According to the filing, the site is owned by Damien Smith under the 63 Pitt Street LLC and currently houses a five-story residential building with 16 units. The 55-foot-tall structure was built in 1920.
Construction is wrapping up on 165 Chrystie Street, a ten-story residential building on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Designed by Architecture Only and developed by Nortco and Nexus Development, the reinforced concrete structure stands on the west side of Sara D. Roosevelt Park between Delancey Street and Rivington Street. Sales is handled by Nest Seekers led by Ryan Serhan, with marketing handled by CORE. Layouts include six through-floor simplex units, a duplex townhouse with a private rear yard, and a triplex penthouse with a private rooftop.
