New Look at Four-Story, 9,000-Square-Foot ABC No Rio Arts Facility, 156 Rivington Street, Lower East Side

A schematic drawing of the long-planned, four-story, 9,000-square-foot commercial building at 156 Rivington Street, on the Lower East Side, has surfaced in a Bowery Boogie report. The structure, which will be built to Passive House standards, will contain a mix of community, performance, and office spaces across the cellar through the fourth floors. There will also be outdoor terraces on the second floor and rooftop level. Renderings of the building’s exterior were previously revealed in 2014. Paul A. Castrucci Architect is behind the design. ABC No Rio will operate the new property, although the art organization must first demolish their existing four-story building on the site. Demolition permits were recently filed and new building applications were approved in 2011. The project has been financed through private donations and city grants. A construction timeline hasn’t been released.
