In early 2014, YIMBY brought you news of plans for a 10-story, nine-unit condominium building at 165 Chrystie Street, on the Lower East Side, and now Curbed has the first renderings. The 17,170 square-foot building will have full-floor units averaging 1,910 square feet. DRK Chrystie LLC is developing and ODA Architecture is designing the project. The existing three-story building must first be removed; demolition permit were filed in December 2014.

Two units will spread across the remaining 4,580 square feet beginning on the third floor. Shiming Tam is the architect of record, and an existing three-story townhouse must first be demolished.
Earlier this year, YIMBY revealed renderings for the first phase of Essex Crossing, a multi-site mixed-use project on the Lower East Side being developed by L+M Development, Taconic Investment and BFC Partners. Bowery Boogie now reports excavation has begun on the first building, located at 242 Broome Street, where a SHoP-designed 14-story, 55-unit mixed-use building is planned. Splitsville Lanes will occupy the basement, and other retail space is also expected on the ground floor.
In October 2014, a 10-story, eight-unit mixed-use building was rising at 179 Suffolk Street, at East Houston Street on the Lower East Side. Bowery Boogie reports the nearly 14,500 square-foot structure topped out last Spring, and now façade installation is nearly complete. The first two levels will be occupied by a religious facility, and opening is likely within the coming months. Defonseca Architects is the architect of record.
