Foundation Work Underway For Seven-Story, 37-Unit Condo Project At 50 Clinton Street, Lower East Side

Early in 2014, YIMBY reported on applications for a seven-story, 37-unit residential building at 50 Clinton Street, on the Lower East Side, and later that year, DHA Capital acquired the development site for $28 million. Bowery Boogie now reports foundation work is well underway, although construction has been temporarily halted by stop work orders. Issac & Stern Architects is designing the project, which will also include 1,836 square feet of ground-floor retail space. The residential units will be condos and will average 1,023 square feet apiece. All but eight are in contract and completion is scheduled for the second half of 2016.

Reveal For Two-Story Retail Building At 159 Ludlow Street, Lower East Side

Late last summer, YIMBY reported on applications for a two-story, 2,126 square-foot retail building at 159 Ludlow Street, on the Lower East Side, and now Bowery Boogie has the project’s reveal, which will take the form of a glassy structure. Hesky Haim and Continental Worsteds are the developers, and DXA Studio is designing the project, which it calls the ‘glass box’. The building appears to include some form of rooftop garden, and will be available as event space. The lot is currently vacant and construction is expected to begin in 2016.

12-Story, 38-Unit Mixed-Use Expansion Filed At 225 East Houston Street, Lower East Side

Early in November, renderings surfaced of the planned 12-story redevelopment of the single-story commercial building at 225 East Houston Street, on the Lower East Side, and now applications have been filed for the expansion project. The existing 17,471 square-foot property will be expanded to 41,000 square feet. The development will include a 6,800 square-foot ground-floor retail component and its 38 residential units will average 900 square feet apiece. Bluarch Architecture is responsible for the most recent renderings, but that firm is no longer working with the property owner, per Bowery Boogie; Rogers Architects is the architect of record. The existing former Provident Loan Society building is not a city landmark, but preservationist Christian Emanuel has filed a request for evaluation (RFE) with the Landmarks Preservation Commission.

This past summer, construction kicked off on the 28-story, 370-key mixed-use building planned at 215 Chrystie Street, on the Lower East Side. Now, the project has risen to 16 floors and is beginning to emerge on the skyline, Bowery Boogie reports. Glass installation is also well underway, with the exteriors of floors two through six nearly completed. The upper portion of the tower will give way to 11 condominiums. Ian Schrager and Witkoff are developing, while Herzog & de Meuron is the design architect. Completion is expected in 2016.
