Earlier this year, applications were filed to demolish the former Streit’s Matzo Factory to the ground floor. The developer wants to build a seven-story, 45-unit mixed-use building with 10,219 square feet of ground and cellar-level retail space from the remnants, at 148-154 Rivington Street, on the Lower East Side. Renderings of the project have now been revealed by the New York Times, which can also report that apartments will be condominiums with one- and two-bedroom configurations. The amount of retail space has also been increased to 13,000 square feet. Cogswell Lee Development (the development arm of Cogswell Realty) is the developer, and GLUCK+ is behind the design. Demolition of the factory is expected to commence in the coming weeks.
Lower East Side
In January, news broke that New York University’s Langone Medical Center signed a lease for 55,000 square feet on three floors of the planned 14-story, 100-unit mixed-use project at 175 Delancey Street – Site 6 of the Essex Crossing mega-development – located on the Lower East Side. Now, construction is ongoing on the ground-floor of the building, The Lo-Down reports. This portion of the development will measure 177,950 square feet and will feature 100 senior housing units. In addition to the medical center, the project’s four-story base will include 6,000 square feet of retail, a 13,000-square-foot senior center with a coffee shop, a 24,000-square-foot education facility, and a 4,000-square-foot outdoor garden. Dattner Architects is behind the design, and Delancy Street Associates (L+M Development Partners, Taconic Investment Partners, and BFC Partners) is developing. Completion is expected in 2017.
Back in February, the seven-story, 37-unit mixed-use project under development at 50 Clinton Street, on the Lower East Side, was two stories above street level. Now, the structure is fully topped out, according to Bowery Boogie. It measures 43,002 square feet and will eventually feature 1,836 square feet of ground-floor retail. The condominium units – being designed by Paris Forino – should average 1,023 square feet apiece and will come in one-, two-, and three-bedroom configurations. As reported previously, amenities include bike storage space, private residential storage, a fitness center, and recreational space on the rooftop. DHA Capital is developing the project, while Issac & Stern Architects is behind the design. Completion can be expected before 2017.
It was back in October of 2014 when the seven-story, 22-unit residential building topped out at 164 Attorney Street, on the Lower East Side. Bowery Boogie now reports construction has since been completed on the exterior of the 28,424-square-foot project, which is cladded with grey bricks punctuated by windows. There will be 3,600 square feet of retail space on the ground floor, and the rental apartments above should average 825 square feet apiece. Amenities includes private storage space, storage for 11 bikes, a six-car parking garage, and a rooftop terrace. An anonymous LLC is the developer and Newman Design Group is the architect of record. Completion is expected later this year.
Last July, developer Hogg Holdings filed plans for 11 stories of condos at 287 East Houston Street, between Suffolk and clinton Streets on the Lower East Side. Now, YIMBY has a new rendering of the facade.
